ICH Guidelines on Impurities | A Simplified Breakdown

Navigating through the complexities of ICH guidelines can be daunting for pharmaceutical professionals. Here’s a distilled comparison to clarify how these standards apply across different stages of drug development:

ICH Q3A & Q3B: Focus on organic and degradation impurities in new drug substances and products, emphasizing safe limits and identification protocols.

ICH Q3C: Addresses residual solvents by categorizing them based on toxicity and setting stringent controls.

ICH M7: Details the assessment and control of DNA-reactive (mutagenic) impurities, underscoring the importance of minimizing carcinogenic risks.

ICH Q3D: Concentrates on elemental impurities, providing a framework for risk assessment and control to prevent toxicity.

Each guideline ensures that pharmaceuticals remain safe and effective, safeguarding public health. Understanding these can enhance compliance and drug safety standards within your projects.
