EMA Publish Concept Paper on Storage Conditions During Transport

EMA Publish Concept Paper on Storage Conditions During Transport.

The globalisation of the manufacture of human and veterinary medicinal products has brought both benefits and a wide range of challenges. This paper is concerned with challenges related to the maintenance of appropriate transit conditions during transport as products move through all stages of the manufacturing and wholesale distribution system from active substance through the wholesale distribution system to ensure that patients and animals receive safe and efficacious medicinal products. The current guidance (CPMP/QWP/609/96/Rev2) was written in 1996 and revised in 2003, during this time significant changes continued to occur in the globalisation of manufacture with a consequent increase in the complexity and vulnerability in the supply chain.

There is a lack of clear guidance on the regulatory expectations for ensuring that medicinal products and APIs are not damaged during transportation. In order that products are fit for their intended purpose, including the ability to tolerate the range of expected storage conditions during use by patients or use in animals, simple and risk-based guidance is required for the transport. Such guidance needs to cover cold chain and non-cold chain products and all of the different stages of manufacture, importation and distribution.
