Limit values for three residual solvents in drug products were revised on basis of the newly recognised toxicity data; lower PDE for N-Methylpyrrolidone being kept in Class 2 limited by health-basis and for Tetrahydrofuran and Cumene being placed into Class 2 from Class 3 no health-based.

Chemical Substances Q6B – Specifications: WHO Stability Guideline Q3C R6 Step 4 – Presentation. This new guideline is intended to improve regulatory communication between industry tk regulators and facilitate more efficient, sound scientific and risk-based approval as well as post-approval change management of analytical procedures.

Swissmedic, Switzerland – Refer to the press release on Swissmedic, Switzerland’s website. ICH Guidelines for Pharmaceuticals Details of the ICH guidelines for pharmaceutical quality from Q1 to Q12 including stability analysis, evaluation of impurities and quality risk management.

As per the new coding rule, they were incorporated into the core Guideline in Tk This new Guideline is proposed to: Guidelines on lifecycle management of pharmaceutical products.

This document describes general principles for reduced stability testing and provides examples of bracketing and matrixing designs. Harmonisation achievements in the Quality area include pivotal milestones such as the conduct of stability studies, defining relevant thresholds for impurities testing w13 a more flexible approach to pharmaceutical quality based on Good Manufacturing Practice GMP risk management.


The pharmacopoeial authorities, working together through the Pharmacopoeial Discussion Group PDGhave been closely involved with the work of ICH since the outset and harmonisation between the major pharmacopoeias, which started before ICH, has proceeded in parallel. Q4B Annex 4B R1. Q14 Analytical Procedure Development.

The Attachment 2 of this guideline has been revised under Step 4 without further public consultation on 25 October Q3A R2. It extends the main stability Ugidelines for new formulations of already approved medicines and defines the circumstances under which reduced stability data can be accepted. Throughout the development of the Q3D Guideline, external audiences, constituents and interested parties have clearly communicated the complexity of the implementation approaches for this guideline.

Quality Guidelines

The document with the first and second set of Points to Consider Document was finalised in June and Novemberrespectively. This is also for stability studies of pharmaceutical products to test the effect of light on the product. The annex provides further clarification of icch concepts outlined in the core Guideline. Q11 – Step 4 Presentation.

While the Q11 Guideline provides the framework, it cannot provide the detailed examples covering the breadth of potential case studies for products within scope of the guideline. Guivelines issues with regard to GMP of APIs — also in context with new ICH Guidelines – are addressed in this Question and Answer document in order to harmonise expectations during inspections, to guidelnies ambiguities and uncertainties and also to harmonise the inspections of both small molecules and biotech APIs.

Q4B Annex 4A R1. Guidelknes AQbD approach is very important to collect information in order to get an understanding and control of sources of variability of the analytical procedure by defining the control strategy.

It has information about impurities in active pharmaceutical ingredients.


Where a company chooses to apply quality by design and quality risk management Q9: Following favourable evaluations, ICH will issue topic-specific annexes with information about these texts and their implementation. The Guideline specifically deals with those impurities which might arise as degradation products of the drug substance or arising from interactions between drug substance and excipients or components of primary packaging materials.

Furthermore, the revised document takes into account the requirements for stability testing in Climatic Zones III and IV in order to minimise the different storage conditions for submission of a global dossier.

Guideline for Residual Solvents. A corrigendum to calculation formula for NMP was subsequently approved on 28 October The annex is not intended to q113 new standards: Q4B Annex 2 R1. To determine the applicability of this guideline for a particular type of product, applicants should consult with the appropriate regulatory authorities.

The new guideline is proposed to guideliens the scientific approaches of Analytical Procedure Development, and to provide the principles relating to the description of Analytical Procedure Development process. It advises on the types of information that are considered valuable in assessing the structure of the expression construct used to produce recombinant DNA derived proteins.

This forms an annex to the main stability Guideline, and gives guidance on the basic testing protocol required to evaluate the light sensitivity and stability of new drugs and products.
