We are familiar with the operating mode and intertwining relationship of the regulating authorities, amongst which are the INFARMED, INPI, Competition Authority and the General Direction of the Economic Activities, as well as with the associations of the sector, like APIFARMA (pharmaceutical industry) and ANF (pharmacies).

Caiado Guerreiro recognizes that the challenges facing today’s biotechnology and medical device companies are greater than ever, with the increased government regulation and aggressive government enforcement action towards the life sciences field.
