Guidance Issuing OfficeCenter for Drug Evaluation and Research
This guidance recommends that applicants refer to Q3A Impurities in New Drug Substances (January 4, 1996, 61 FR 371) when seeking guidance on identification, qualification, and reporting of impurities in drug substances that are not considered new drug substances. Although Q3A was developed by the International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) to provide guidance on the information that should be provided in a new drug application (NDA) in support of impurities in new drug substances that are produced by chemical syntheses, the Agency believes that the guidance provided there on identification, qualification, and reporting of impurities should also be considered when evaluating impurities in drug substances produced by chemical syntheses that are not considered new drug substances.
You can submit online or written comments on any guidance at any time (see 21 CFR 10.115(g)(5))
