Last week the FDA approved the first over-the-counter birth control drug. Opill, manufactured by Perrigo, is the first daily oral contraceptive that will be available without a prescription. The main constituent of Opill, Norgestrel, was originally approved for prescription use in 1973. The switch from prescription only to over the counter can sometimes be a complicated process, needing to take into account a variety of risks that the drug poses to public health. With the switch from prescription only to OTC, many other firms are beginning to review the possibility and implications of switching their own products from prescription to OTC.

Examples of some of the organizations that develop these standards are: International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards, American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards, American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards, International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards, etc. The IEC is an organization that develops standards to standardize the electrical and electronic fields .

It’s hard to find a company you can trust. E.M.M.A. International Consulting Group Inc. was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding. We now have a world-class quality system.
Director of Corporate Advancement,
EMMA was there for my company when we needed it most. We were in the middle of an intense Remediation when we had an unfortunate wave of turnover. Within 2 weeks EMMA had fully staffed our site with the SMEs we needed to continue the project and hit our deadlines.
