EU GMP Annex 21

Annex 21 to the EU-GMP Guidelines has been published as a draft (on 20th March 2020), titled "Importation of medicinal Products".

The Annex includes:

·         Physical transfer from the third country to the EU/EEA
·         Certification by the Qualified Person (QP) (link with the requirements of Annex 16)
·         Requirements for equipment and facilities
·         Required documentation
