ICH’s 2003 Vision of a Harmonized Quality Regulatory Approach that Fosters Innovation Continued to Take Form in 2023 and 2024

The ICH goal of evolving its quality guideline series to keep pace with and provide support for technological innovation has continued to be realized in 2023 and 2024.

The goal is not a new one for ICH but was clearly articulated back in 2003 in an overarching “Quality Vision” calling for the development of “a harmonized pharmaceutical quality system applicable across the lifecycle of the product emphasizing an integrated approach to quality risk management and science.”

● PART I: Analytics Guidelines Q14 and Q2(R2)
● PART II: Viral Safety Guideline Q5A(R2)
● PART III: ICH Q1/Q5C Revision and Stability Evaluation

Week Ending May 17, 2024:
Featuring MHRA Inspector Watson on API & Excipient Findings

At the Joint Pharmaceutical Analysis Group (JPAG) conference on APIs and excipients held in London in late March, MHRA Lead Senior GMDP Inspector Trevor Watson shared his insights on current regulatory expectations and common inspection findings. He discussed: ● relevant UK and EU legislation for APIs ● inspection of API manufacturers ● API inspection findings between 2021-2023 ● GMP deficiency themes ● inspections of UK and overseas dosage form manufacturers ● common deficiencies in control of starting materials, and ● MHRA compliance referral processes.
