This Public Meeting has ended. Thank you for attending.

Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency


Around four years have passed since China became a member of the International Council for Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH) and in the meantime, various efforts have been made to implement ICH guidelines in China.
This timely meeting is intended for sharing what will be discussed at the ICH virtual assembly which is scheduled at the beginning of June, and the implementation status of ICH guidelines in both China and Japan.
Through this meeting, it is expected to deepen our understanding of the situation in each country, to promote implementation of ICH guidelines in both countries, and to work together to meet patient expectations of both countries.
