So you missed the webinars on 1 April but have questions about the updated approach to extraneous agent testing in IVMPs?
To provide long-term user support on IVMP testing policy, the EDQM is making two documents available. The first summarises what has changed and why, the second summarises the content of the training webinars which took place on 1 April 2020.
Free online training resources (presentations and recordings) from the EDQM webinars of 1 April 2020, among others, are available and can be used for self-training. The two free webinars – with a particular focus on risk management and presenting concrete examples on how to apply the new approach – and the supporting documents (summary of the revised Ph. Eur. requirements for extraneous agent testing, and what has changed and why) can be found HERE.
Moreover, the EDQM is committed to working in partnership with regional, national and international agencies, authorities, institutions and industry for the wider benefit of all, and is therefore pleased to announce that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has also published a document on its website entitled “Questions and answers on management of extraneous agents in immunological veterinary medicinal products (IVMPs)”.
