Dos and don'ts for SIEF negotiations

These Dos and Don'ts can help make your cooperation with other co-registrants smoother.

 

Dos Don'ts

Underestimate the time and resources required to prepare the dossier

 Take the initiative in SIEFs that are crucial for your business, especially when no other SIEF member seems to be willing to move ahead

Disclose confidential or commercially sensitive information

✓ Focus your discussions on getting things done in the SIEF – and if you cannot agree on how to distribute work among the SIEF members, consider hiring a consultant

Delay

Agree on a robust cost-sharing model

Favour some SIEF members over others

Treat the company/person you are negotiating with as you would expect to be treated

Provide without unnecessary delays the information needed to proceed with the preparation of the joint registration dossier
