Experienced service providers of Regulatory and Quality solutions for Medical Devices, Pharmaceutical and Biological Products.
Companies often come on a riddle when they intend to register their product in a region with higher ROI (return on investment) due to higher initial product registration process cost. At RQLogix we aim to assist our clients with optimum solutions to avoid regulatory submission pitfalls.
Most of the regulators / countries are accepting already registered products. These products are often low risk products and with increasing competition / low margin products. For higher classification and novel devices, the registration process require attention to detail and preparation, even these products are registered in overseas market. In the Australian market, they often get setback and face a lengthy registration process, if devices are selected for an application audit. Some class IIb devices and all class III devices require mandatory application audit.

At RQLogix, our dedicated staff gained valuable experience in registering medical devices, existing drugs and IND (investigational new drug), OTC (over the counter products) on the ARTG and New Zealand WAND.
Each therapeutic product has its own fingerprint and needs to be presented to unlock marketing potential. Depending on product, the registration process varies. For devices, the timeline is from 7 days to more than 12 months depending on product registration pathway. The IND applications may take longer than a year. Device-drug combination products are same as that of IND registration. The devices with software as a component vary upon risk associated with software and often registration timeline is in-line with medical devices.

The Australian regulations is similar to the EU requirements. However, TGA clinical evaluation requirements are significantly demanding then our EU counterparts.

We help our clients with pre-submission preparation in order to avoid delay in product registration.
With modern computing advancements, use of software in a medical device is an emerging necessity. Devices with electronic programming for the therapeutic purpose involve complexity in regulatory jargon. Most of the start-ups and existing companies invest a lot in R&D. However, few incorporate regulatory component during design and development (D&D) stage. Large device manufacturers and pharma now-a-days allocate these regulatory sources from conception. However, the smaller companies or start-ups struggle to allocate regulatory resources during D&D stage. At RQLogix, we can fit that gap and assist you with compliance and product registration.
US FDA has noted adverse event / product recalls since 1994 and their established standard published in the year 2002 is still a benchmark in the area of software validation for medical devices. Current standard IEC 62304 lists the harmonised standard for development and use of software as a medical device. The complexity associated with regulatory compliance can be collaboratively managed through RQLogix.
With novel technologies in drug delivery systems, it pays dividend to work on regulatory compliance simultaneously if you intend to register your IND (investigational new drug). Companies require significant amount of supporting data to satisfy regulatory assessor requirements to register drug-device combination products. By working closely with our clients based on the product compliance requirements, RQLogix staff will help register the product on ARTG (TGA) and WAND (Medsafe).
Most of the times, manufacturers focus on regulatory aspects of a product and miss on the basics of the product realisation steps such as sterilisation and packaging validation studies.

We can also prepare validation protocols in liaison with your preferred sterilisation service provider and execute the validation studies.

Prosthesis devices (surgically-implanted) and some pharmaceutical products are subsidised by the Australian Government. The process to bring your device under the Prosthesis list or under PBS can be set at the same time, while we apply your product on ARTG. This avenue is managed by our specialist staff by considering that the window to include on prosthesis list PBS scheme is very limited (products are only reviewed during the committee meeting, which is conducted at limited frequency in a year).
Even though we are geographically located outside the European zone, we can assist prospective customers to register their product in European Union. We will cater your applications to ensure your devices comply with CE marking requirements through EC compliance that meets the EU MDD requirements [Medical Device Regulations (EU 2017/745) and In Vitro Diagnostic Regulation (EU 2017/746)].
