Quality control of pharmaceutical drugs is essential for assuring efficacy and safety. Many ICH Quality Guidelines are now under development and being revised. Q2(R2)/Q14 and Q13 are about to reach Step 2. Q12 reached Step 5 in 2019 and is under implementation in Japan.
Those guidelines will improve the CMC process and accelerate the patients’ access to new pharmaceutical drugs.
In this forum, experts who are working on the Q2(R2)/Q14, Q13 and Q12 guidelines will present the overviews as well as a presentation and a panel discussion about Q12 and amendment to “Act on Securing Quality, Efficacy and Safety of Products Including Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices”. We will also have a presentation about the updates of quality guidelines and a panel discussion about the latest views of ICH.
This forum providing opportunities to lead better public health and proper use of ICH guidelines.
