Quality-By-Design Q&A

US FDA and the EMA are publishing a series of joint question-and-answer documents that outline the conclusions of their first parallel assessment of quality-by-design (QbD) elements of a marketing authorization application. One of the projected outcomes of this pilot was to share key findings with the public.

FDA and EMA will publish additional question-and-answer documents on other QbD-related topics as the pilot program continues and more parallel assessments are conducted. Both agencies found the parallel assessment useful and reached agreement on a wide range of QbD aspects. At the request of the applicant, experts from the Japanese Pharmaceuticals Medical Devices Agency also participated as observers in this first parallel assessment.
