If your company makes drugs, medical devices, or biologics (vaccines, blood and blood components, allergenics, somatic cells, gene therapy, tissues, and recombinant therapeutic proteins), it is regulated.
If your company is regulated, then every IT system you use to design, develop, conduct trials, manufacture, package, label, store, distribute, install, or service your products is also regulated and must comply with the regulations that govern the countries and regions in which your company operates. This includes both IT systems you host on your own premises, as well as those available in the cloud.
