  14. Sponsor workshop from Veeva: Redefining Regulatory Affairs in the Age of Transparency

    Regulatory Affairs teams are critical enablers, ensuring businesses remain compliant and true to product stewardship goals. They provide constant, critical customer service, in some cases answering thousands of questions per month, but don't typically think of themselves as customer service organizations. That needs to change.

    In this session Andrew Douglass, Strategy Leader at Veeva, will share key learnings from global customers in the chemical industry that are redefining product stewardship and regulatory affairs. They are adopting technology and tools that automate request management, maximize transparency, customer experience, and efficiency, as well as mitigate risk.
