Multilingual packing pilot. The CMDh would like to remind applicants of the Multilingual packaging pilot. The wish to participate in the pilot should be articulated in the cover letter of new submissions indicating the respective member state cluster(s). Further details on the pilot can be found in the May 2021 CMDh Press releases or the corresponding CMDh Best Practice Guide on Multilingual Packaging.

Statistics on MRPs, DCPs, Variations and Renewals. As of June 2021, the information published in the press releases on the procedures started or finalised will be changed. In the future, only the frequency of participation in started MRPs or DCPs of each member state will be published; the full information on started and finalised procedures will continue to be published every 6 months by the CMDh at this link.

Document Update. The CMDh, together with the EMA and EC, has revised the EMA/CMDh Q&As on the implementation of the Medical Devices and In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices Regulations and also added new Q&As. The revised version will be published on the CMDh website at this link. The template for requests for RMS in a DCP for medicinal products for human use has also been revised, in which applicants should in future also specify the intended indication(s) of the product and information on whether the ASMF is to be assessed in a worksharing procedure, if applicable. The revised version will be published on the CMDh website at this link.
