Areas of Expertise
CROMA during the 15 years of its operation, established long term collaborations with a wide range of companies (such us local and multinational pharmaceutical companies, other contract research organizations, companies specialized in the production and commercialization of food supplements, cosmetics, biocides and medical devices) being acknowledged as a reliable and highly professional local partner by taking care of the effective execution of their projects in Greece and Cyprus.
Through these years we expanded our expertise in other areas, such as food supplement notifications, medical devices, biocides and cosmetics notifications. Especially in the area of food supplements notifications, where the EU legislation is not fully harmonized though the EU countries and national rules apply to the “grey area” products due to their composition, we gained our expertise by evaluating and submitting notifications of more than 100 different products during the last 15 years.
