Going abroad - the challenges in a multinational environment

The life science sector is not only fast-growing and fast-developing but also strongly regulated and must deal with frequent-changing regulations. For the success of a business, it is of utmost importance to be familiar with prevailing regulations. 

When life science companies expand activities to international territories – either in combination with a multinational clinical trial or with bringing products to market – they must adhere to different regulations from the local to state from the national to international level – this creates additional complexity. 

Local legislations vary greatly from country to country and it can become costly if you are not aware of the latest changes. Recent amendments of local insurance-affecting regulations were for example, the implementation of categorizations of clinical trials into therapeutic experiments and research experiments in Poland and modified anti-money-laundering laws in Ukraine. 

Together, Chubb and Kessler are valuable partners for the insurance of multi-national risks; they are able to support you around the world - from clinical trial insurance in the Netherlands to products liability insurance in Japan – as they have a broad network across the world. They have a deep understanding of the different markets, their entry barriers as well as their current research regulations – both help you stay informed about political, legal and economic developments in the insurance market. 

Contact us in early stage of the clinical trial or product lifecycle and we save you valuable time and energy in supporting you through the whole cycle.
