8.3 WHO Certification Scheme on the Quality of Pharmaceutical Products Moving in International Commerce
The Committee was briefed on the recommendations made at the International Conference of Drug Regulatory Anthorities held in 1999 on the issue of certificates.
The Committee was informed that the paper advocated the preparation of electronic certificates on the web sites of regulatory authorities. Some members of the Committee considered that this would be difficult for both exporting and importing countries.
The Committee noted the document and agreed that a small working group should be established to discuss and introduce any further improvements that would increase the credibility of the WHO Certification Scheme.
