The document of the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & HealthCare (EDQM) entitled “Implementation of policy on elemental impurities in the Certification Procedure” has been revised to reflect that risk assessments have to be performed and suitable controls for elemental impurities should be implemented using the principles of risk management for substances for veterinary use. These data must be submitted in CEP applications. This applies to new CEP applications, CEP renewals and requests for revision where changes related to elemental impurities are introduced into the manufacturing process for substances for veterinary use. The title of the document and the template RMS have also been updated.
Its implementation date is the 1 June 2021.
