What is an Official Correspondent?
The Official Correspondent is the person identified in the establishment registration that the FDA will try to contact first if an issue arises. However, unlike the US Agent, the Official Correspondent does not need to be located in the US and may be a representative of your company. Although it is not required, companies sometimes prefer to appoint Emergo as their Official Correspondent to be the first point of contact with FDA officials, ensuring the proper handling of inquiries from FDA officials.
Why is it better to hire a professional regulatory firm instead of a distributor?
Distributors are in the business of selling your products and are not experts in regulatory matters. What happens if there is an incident with your products in the USA? Will your distributor know how to handle the situation if the FDA calls them? What happens if you switch distributors and need to find a new US Agent? As a professional regulatory firm, we work for you and will always make sure your interests are served.
