From idea to solution


Navigating the regulatory process in product licensing requires the right certifications and guidance, and the right aquaculture contract research organisation with GLP, GCP & GMP certifications

Product licensing is a long, intricate process, and a daunting endeavour for even the most experienced of organisations, let alone for ambitious entrepreneurs new to the industry. Ground-breaking ideas that could shape the future of seafood production or revolutionize the aquaculture industry often hit roadblocks during the licensing process due to the complexity of navigating the numerous health authorities and intricate regulatory landscape in different countries. These roadblocks add delays and unexpected costs to products on the road to licensing.

That’s why it’s crucial to follow a process that includes testing for safety, efficacy and consistency during the licensing process. Partnering with an Aquaculture Contract Research Organisation (CRO), that possesses GCP processes as well as GLP and GMP certification, ensures that the highest standards of compliance and quality throughout a product’s licensing journey are met. Picking the right CRO to help navigate this regulatory landscape is the best investment to make in a product licensing journey.
