The registration process for Indian drug products in overseas markets involves several steps and can vary depending on the country’s regulatory requirements. Here are the common steps involved:

1. Pre-registration: Before starting the registration process, it is essential to evaluate whether the product is suitable for the target market or not. In this stage, the product’s regulatory status in the target country, the requirements for testing, packaging, labeling, and import permits are checked.

2. Submission of application: Once the evaluation is completed, the application for registration is submitted to the regulatory authority of the target country. The application can be submitted online or in writing. The application includes the product’s compositions, manufacturing process, safety, efficacy data, labeling, and packaging details.

3. Review and evaluation: The regulatory authority then reviews the application and evaluates the data submitted. This evaluation can take several months.

4. Site inspection: In some cases, the regulatory authority may require an inspection of the manufacturing facility to ensure compliance with the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards.

5. Approval: Once the regulatory authority is satisfied, they approve the product for marketing in their country.

6. Post-marketing surveillance: Following approval, the regulatory authority monitors the product’s safety, efficacy, and quality.

The registration process can be complex, and it is advisable to use the services of a local representative or consultant experienced in overseas registration to navigate the regulatory process.
