The requirements of Annex 1, (which came into effect in August 2022), are applicable to the production of sterile pharmaceutical products. Manufacturers were given one year to adapt to the new guidelines, except for a part related to Lyophilization, where an additional year has been allowed to meet the Lyophilization criteria.
Since Annex 1 was first published, there have been numerous changes in technology, authority and patient expectations in GMP regulations.
A key element of Annex 1 is Contamination Control Strategy (CCS). Although this was presented as a new requirement, in fact contamination and cross-contamination were already mandatory requirements in facilities producing sterile medicinal products. The objective here is to include the measures taken by the manufacturing facility in a master document, which can be used periodically by senior management to ensure their facility meets the safety requirements.
Annex 1 refers to the importance of fulfilling the requirements set forth in ICH Q9 regarding Quality Risk Management. Interestingly, ICH completed the revision of Q9 in January 2023 and finally released it after 18 years of discussions.
Both sterile medical product manufacturers and the regulatory authorities emphasize the importance of evaluating the new Annex 1 according to the ICH Q9 guideline.
This webinar will explain the reasons for the revision of Annex 1 and will address the changes and implications for pharmaceutical manufacturers. Topics to be discussed will include how to prepare your CCS document, and how to adapt to the principles of Quality Risk Management. The expectations of the regulatory authorities and the questions that may be encountered in audits/inspections will also be discussed.
This course is part of our GxP (Good x Practice) training course collection, which feature a variety of topic areas to ensure you comply with the regulations and quality guidelines.
By participating in this webinar, you will receive detailed information about the new Annex 1, be brought up-to-date regarding the requirements, and the webinar documents will be a useful reference source for the future.
