PDG publishes its report on September meeting

A report on the Pharmacopoeial Discussion Group (PDG) meeting which took place on September 12-13 is now available on the website of the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & Healthcare (EDQM).

Among the highlights from the meeting are some significant changes to the PDG work structure, including: eliminating two stages of PDG harmonization process to streamline and reduce the level of complexity; restructuring the meeting format to engage more effectively at the technical level with regards to resolving issues on specific topics; and maintaining a twice-yearly meeting frequency with a focus on strategic direction setting.

Under the new structure, harmonization of several PDG topics will be continued in other collaborative venues, such as bilateral discussion or adopt/adapt mechanisms as mentioned in the Good Pharmacopoeial Practices (GPhP), said the EDQM in a statement.
