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
● PART IV: The Role of the New CGT Discussion Group
● PART V: ICH’s M4Q(R2) on the Quality Component of the CTD

Week Ending June 14, 2024: Featuring EMA’s Bouygues on Drug/Device Combination Regulatory Challenges

At the May RAPs Euro Convergence Conference, EMA’s Christelle Bouygues reviewed the challenges that have come to the forefront in implementing Medical Device Regulation (MDR) Article 117 on drug/device combination products and how the Q&A guidance addressing the regulatory expectations has been revised to help address them. She managed to cover a lot of ground in her concise talk on the state of play between regulators and industry on combination product approvals and lifecycle management.
