About UsNorman F. Estrin, Ph.D., RAC

Established in 1990 by Norman F. Estrin, Ph.D., RAC, ECG is located close to FDA in Maryland and offers efficient, cost-effective service. ECG's emphasis is on medical device submissions but also is called upon to advise clients on other device issues as well as on cosmetic and pharmaceutical regulatory and business development areas. ECG President, Dr. Norman Estrin, has over 30 years of experience on FDA issues.

ECG's strengths are its personalized service and in-depth understanding of the rapidly changing regulatory environment. Its principal, Norm Estrin, coordinates with the client to organize and develop most submissions. Other consultants and attorneys are brought in only with the client's concurrence and when specialized expertise is required. ECG's philosophy in preparing regulatory submissions is to couple the client's expertise in the technology with ECG's expertise in preparing regulatory submissions and dealing with the FDA.

ECG's job is to work very closely with the client to ensure that technical information can be translated into a form acceptable and clear to the FDA in order to facilitate its review. Through use of all applicable guidance documents and personal contacts with FDA officials and the regulatory community, ECG helps ensure that the submission reflects the latest FDA thinking. Solid scientific data from the client, put into an easy-to-follow format, helps reduce the number and frequency of FDA questions, which can slow down the clearance (or approval) process significantly.

ECG also advises cosmetic and OTC drug clients in regulatory and business development areas. Other services include acting as an expert witness (for corporations) and assisting law firms in resolving technical and submission issues.


Favorable, timely reviews of medical device submissions by the FDA do not happen by chance. They depend on sound planning, management and expert knowledge in the preparation of your submission. The alternative is a costly and frustrating process that will delay or prevent your product from getting to market.
