Despite efforts to harmonize regulatory requirements, the proliferation of divergent expectations continues to unnecessarily complicate management of product supply chains. While divergent regulatory requirements are largely the result of local economic drivers, the impact on regulatory approvals, inspections, change management and inventory limits continuous improvement and optimization of manufacturing and is ultimately challenging for industry and regulatory authorities globally.
