Short Course* Registration: 8:00AM-5:00PM

The International Council for Harmonisation (ICH) of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use is unique in bringing together the regulatory authorities and pharmaceutical industry to discuss scientific and technical aspects of drug registration. Since its inception in 1990, ICH has gradually evolved to respond to the increasingly global face of drug development. ICH's mission is to achieve greater harmonization worldwide to ensure that safe, effective, and high-quality medicines are developed and registered in the most resource-efficient manner.
Harmonization is achieved through the development of ICH Guidelines via a process of scientific consensus with regulatory and industry experts working side-by-side. The key to the success of this process is the commitment of the ICH regulators to implement the final Guidelines.

This introductory training course will provide an overview of the ICH process, the value that ICH brings to drug regulation in Canada, as well as ICH quality guidelines.
