  • ISPE has updated its ISPE GAMP guidance on testing of GXP systems to help companies efficiently test computerized and software-based systems.
  • France has asked the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to review third- and fourth-generation combined oral contraceptives to determine if these drugs should be restricted to women who cannot take other combined oral contraceptives. The agency’s Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee will review the drugs and give its opinion and determine if a EU-wide recommendation is necessary.
  • EMA has published guidance on preparing and reviewing product characteristic summaries. The guidance outlines the European Commission’s principles on product characteristic summaries.

  • The United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) has posted a revision bulletin on <232> Elemental Impurities—Limits and <233> Elemental Impurities—Procedures.
