Regulatory Affairs

We provide bespoke solutions to meet the regulatory affairs needs of our clients, whether it be ad hoc support for an urgent project need, or a long term strategic programme to deliver regulatory excellence with an experienced outsourced team.


Our team provides end-to-end regulatory affairs services and expertise-driven product development advice from the early stages of development through to post-market support.


Development Stage Regulatory Affairs Support

Taking a product from the lab bench, towards clinical development and into patients takes years of expertise, effort and expense.

We strive to stay at the forefront of regulatory science and we hold a leading position in providing regulatory affairs support to Advance Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMP) for cell and gene therapy programmes. Diamond supported the MAA submission for Glybera the first approved gene therapy product in Europe. We have since built significant experience in supporting over 40 different ATMP programmes including the EU regulatory programme leading to the approval of the CAR-T product Yescarta®. We also have broad experience across all molecule types including advanced biologics and small molecules.
