Overview

With an advanced healthcare system, Singapore is regarded as a key drug market by renowned global pharmaceutical companies. Medicinal products in Singapore are regulated by the Health Science Authority (HSA) under Health Products Act 2007, and they must obtain necessary approvals to be distributed and marketed in the country. For innovator products, a New Drug Application (NDA) should be filed and for generic drugs, it should be a Generic Drug Application (GDA) application. All applications to the HSA must be filed or submitted through the Pharma Regulatory and Information System (PRISM). Right from compiling dossiers as per pre-defined formats, assessing ingredient limits to handling submissions through established systems, new market entrants may find it difficult to navigate the country’s Regulatory procedures.

With a dedicated team for Singapore, Freyr ensures compliance by liaising with the HSA during pre- and post-submission activities. Freyr specializes in handling dossier compilation and submission as per ACTD/ eCTD formats in line with HSA requirements. Freyr also aids in responding to HA queries, renewals and other post-approval activities to maintain continued compliance.
