The EMA legally requires that

, says time is running out before the
EMA's pending April 30 deadline

. Therefore, it's important that companies choose a quality partner to help them smoothly navigate the EMA process," said

accession deadlines. But new translation technologies available through providers like Moravia can help ensure fast project turnaround and delay-free regulatory approval."
