ICH collaborates with Standards Development Organisations to enforce globalisation of its standards

 
As announced in a press release end of October, the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) will "collaborate with accredited Standards Development Organisations (SDOs) to leverage the development of technical standards for ICH e-Initiatives."

By collaborating the organisation expects that more non-ICH countries will implement its standards, making them global standards. This would result in more efficient processes and worldwide more uniform drug development requirements.

With the goal of harmonising submissions globally, the ICH also reports that chemical and biotech quality experts met to identify areas in pharmaceutical quality which need to be addressed across all products at the ICH level. Further discussions are planned for the next ICH meeting, scheduled for May 2007.

The complete ICH release can be found in the Internet at http://www.ich.org/LOB/media/MEDIA3361.pdf


  
The ICH quality standard is also the centre of the ECA "ICH Q9 Training Course" and "ICH Q10 and FDA Quality System Training Course" from 20-22 June 2007 in Berlin, Germany.
