The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is inviting comments on newly-released guidance by the International Conference on Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use (ICH) that seeks to harmonize standards between the US, EU and other countries.
ICH's standard, E2C(R2): Periodic Benefit-Risk Evaluation Report, was released by the organization 2 March 2012. The US Food and Drug Administration quickly followed suit, releasing their version of the standard 10 April for public comment.
EMA's 16 April guidance seeks comments on the E2C (R2) guideline, which "defines the recommended content and format of a periodic benefit-risk evaluation report (PBRER) and provides an outline of points to be considered in its preparation and submission."
The E2C (R2) standard seeks to ensure that marketed drugs contain all relevant safety and efficacy information.
Comments on the standard are due 21 May 2012.
