  • Culls and organizes documents needed for the registration of a product, or products, and submits them to the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA);
  • Follows up the registration of products at FDA and secures the certificate(s) of product registration, or submits other and additional documents required by the FDA;
  • Ensures that the standard procedures in manufacturing drug(s) and in maintaining good sanitary condition in the plant are followed;
  • Performs other duties that may be assigned to him by the immediate superior.
  • Graduate of Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy;
  • Preferably with some units in courses related to marketing, business, statistics, or life sciences;
