Dr Rango Dietrich,  PharmDev Innovations


You will learn about the new requirements for manufacturing, labelling, testing, release and distribution of investigational medicinal products (IMPs) and get to know different aspects of the outstanding changes in the EU and in Germany.


The Clinical Trials Regulation No 536/2014 (CTR) entered into force in 2014. The date of its initial application depends on the full functionality of the Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS) being established by an independent audit. Right now, preparations for the CTIS’ audit are being made. The CTR will become applicable six month after the publication of this confirmation by the European Commission. 

With the coming into force of the CTR, the currently valid GMP guidelines for IMPs as well as the current Annex 13 will be repealed. Various customary provisions for IMPs (e.g. Labelling, import, sponsor responsibility, safety reporting) have been revised, partly with considerable consequences regarding the time and budget for clinical trial supplying. The resulting changes in the handling of IMPs will be introduced in this webinar. It will also throw light on the newly regulated comparator products and non-IMPs (NIMPs) which are used as background therapy in clinical trials.

Target Group

This training is aimed at all workers in the pharmaceutical industry involved in the development, manufacturing, quality control, packaging, quality assurance, release and distribution of IMPS, as well as persons from authorities and associations. It also addresses employees of IMP contract manufacturers and staff at CROs who are involved in the project planning for provisioning IMPs.
