Slide 4

The International Pharmacopeia A couple dates… The historical backdrop of the International Pharmacopeia goes back 1874… 1948 First World Health Assembly settled Expert Committee on Unification of Pharmacopeia 1950 WHA affirmed distribution of Pharmacopeia Internationalis (Ph.Int)

Slide 5

The International Pharmacopeia Monographs and necessities for: Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) Finished measurement frames General strategies/writings e.g. disintegration testing, tablets Completed with: General notification Supplementary data, e.g. General rules for Chemical Reference Substances Infrared reference spectra

Slide 8

How does the Ph.Int work? The Ph.Int depends on the work and choices of the WHO Expert Committee on Specifications for Pharmaceutical Preparations Aim in the course of the most recent 60 years: "to advance quality affirmation and quality control of pharmaceuticals"

Slide 9

What is the WHO Expert Committee? Official Advisory Body to Director-General of WHO Governed through standards and strategies ( Ref . WHO Manual) Participation to Expert Committee (EC) gatherings: Voting individuals ("Experts") chose from WHO Panel of Experts Technical counsels Observers : - universal associations , -NGOs , -proficient affiliations…

Slide 10

Outcome of the WHO Expert Committee? Report Summary of examinations Recommendations to WHO + Member States Presentation to WHO Governing Bodies for definite remarks, underwriting and usage by Member States  WHO specialized direction

Slide 11

WHO Expert Committee Report Includes: Important redesign on the Ph.Int Proposed new work arrange Specifications for prescriptions (new received writings, corrections… ) Reference material (embraced International Chemical Reference Substances, Infrared Reference Spectra)

Slide 12

WHO Consultative technique This procedure is intended to guarantee wide discussion and straightforwardness amid monograph improvement and to make the received writings accessible in an auspicious way.

Slide 13

WHO takes the necessary steps … with Partners (1) Within WHO… WHO infection programs ( Stop TB, Roll-Back Malaria, HIV/AIDS, Tropical Neglected Diseases, programs on Children, Women's Health… ) Prequalification Program – A United Nations Program oversaw by WHO With Regulatory Bodies… National/Regional administrative powers Regional/Interregional administrative gatherings ( ASEAN, ICH... )

Slide 15

WHO takes the necessary steps … with Partners (3) With "recognized" Experts… WHO Expert Panel on The International Pharmacopeia and Pharmaceutical Preparations (official selection handle) Specialists from all regions for particular activities (administrative, college, industry… ) With "recognized" Laboratories… National/Regional Quality control research facilities WHO Collaborating Centers (official assignment prepare)

Slide 16

Slide 17

WHO Procedure for the planning of medication Quality Control determinations (1) … ..or why it takes so long… . Step 1 : Identification of particular pharmaceutical items for which Quality Control (QC) determinations should be created, affirmation by all WHO parties concerned (counting Department of Essential Medicines and Pharmaceutical Policies (EMP) particular illness programs and the Prequalification Program) Step 2* : Provision of contact subtle elements from makers of the above items in a joint effort with all gatherings concerned Step 3* : Contact makers for arrangement of QC details and tests Step 4 : Identify and contact QC research centers for coordinated effort in the venture (2-3 labs relying upon what number of pharmaceutical items have been distinguished in step 1), Contract for lab work

Slide 18

WHO Procedure for the planning of medication Quality Control details (2) … ..or why it takes so long… . Step 5 : Prepare the agreement for drafting the particulars and undertaking the fundamental research center work Step 6 : Search for data on QC details accessible in the general population area Step 7 : Laboratory testing , advancement and approval of QC Specifications Step 8 : Support WHO Collaborating Center in the foundation of International Chemical Reference Substances Step 9 : Follow the consultative procedure , mailing of draft determinations to Expert Panel and authorities

Slide 19

WHO Procedure for the readiness of medication Quality Control details (3) … ..or why it takes so long… . Step 10 : Discussion of remarks with contract research centers, WHO Collaborating Centers, extra lab testing to confirm as well as approve details Step 11 : Consultation to talk about the remarks and test outcomes got as criticism Step 12 : distribution for remarks Step 13 : as step 10 Step 14 : Present the drafts to the WHO Expert Committee on Specifications for Pharmaceutical Preparations for conceivable formal appropriation , … if not embraced reiteration of steps 11 to 13 as regularly as essential
