Japan and Korea join PIC/S
PharmOut congratulates the MHLW and the PMDA of Japan’s Prefectures and Korea’s MFDS on being invited to join PIC/S as of the 1st July.
This will means we have 46 participating authorities, not sure how this fits with the recent Dr Margaret Hamburg talk in London to the MHRA relating to globalisation and the formation of an “International Coalition of Medical Regulatory Authorities (ICMRA)”. Link can be found here.
In addition the PIC/S Committee announced that it will adopt the EU guide for GDP, the guidance will be published on the PIC/S website shortly but assume that it will be similar to the EU guidance.
