Why did we develop this tool?

Market approval is mandatory at various milestones in the development of novel (bio)medical intervention and is the gateway all new interventions must pass to benefit patients. The regulation of medical interventions is often experienced as very complex and confusing. One of the reasons is that it is difficult to identify the relevant guidelines and guidances for a specific intervention or product.

The Market Approval Navigator is designed as a practical and easy to use tool to quickly identify relevant documents and their source (EMA, FDA or ICH).
