NEW WEBINAR: N-Nitrosamine impurities: Latest update on the Ph. Eur. approach

European Pharmacopoeia
21 January 2021
Strasbourg, France

Focus on the new general chapter on the analysis of N-nitrosamine impurities in active substances




Programme overview

During its 168th Session, the European Pharmacopoeia Commission adopted a new general chapter on the analysis of N-nitrosamine impurities in active substances (2.5.42, previously listed as 2.4.36). The new general chapter proposes three procedures and focuses mainly on the analysis of N-nitrosamine impurities in angiotensin-II-receptor antagonists (sartans) containing a tetrazole group, for which there are five Ph. Eur. monographs (valsartan, losartan potassium, candesartan cilexetil, irbesartan and olmesartan medoxomil), but may also be helpful to establish a control strategy for other active substances or for medicinal products.

This webinar will provide users and stakeholders with an update on the different activities related to N-nitrosamine impurities, including a detailed overview of the new general chapter. It will also include a recap of the Ph. Eur. approach to keeping the monographs aligned with the latest regulatory decisions.

The webinar will take place on 21 January 2021, from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (Paris, France).

There will also be ample time at the end of the presentations for live questions and answers.
