Tim DowRegulatory Services Manager
Of his almost 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry, Tim has spent 14 years in regulatory affairs roles within pharmaceutical manufacturing companies and as a consultant. Tim has been with the Commercial Eyes Regulatory Services team since 2011.
Tim gained his start in the industry through Quality Control/Quality Assurance laboratory roles for both local and global pharmaceutical companies, in Australia and in the UK. The regulatory roles that Tim has held have predominantly focussed on prescription medicines where he has been responsible for the preparation, review and assessment of regulatory documentation at all stages of the development, registration and maintenance cycle. Tim has developed effective working relationships with staff at both the TGA and Medsafe and has been involved in the conduct of pre-submission meetings with the TGA on a variety of topics.
As consultants, Tim and the Regulatory Services team are often faced with the more challenging or obscure regulatory issues, the rewards of which can be very satisfying. Tim says, “You get a real sense of accomplishment when you achieve a result for a client they didn’t think was possible or had previously thought was too difficult or expensive.”
Tim has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Chemistry) and has been a member of the Association of Regulatory and Clinical Scientists to the Australian Pharmaceutical Industry (ARCS) since 2002. Outside of work he is an avid snow skier and is often dreaming of his next quest to find deep powder snow.
