    Joint Biologics Working Party / Quality Working Party workshop with stakeholders in relation to prior knowledge and its use in regulatory applications

    Prior knowledge has always been an important tool in designing both manufacturing processes and control strategies for medicinal products. The use of prior knowledge in regulatory application dossiers, to support manufacturing and control strategies, could be justifiable in certain circumstances. For prior knowledge to be used in this way, good understanding among regulators and industry of the expectations of how it should be documented in regulatory application dossiers is essential. This joint regulator/industry workshop will address exactly what prior knowledge entails and how it can be used to support product development, manufacturing and control strategies. These general discussions will be further elaborated through a number of specific industry case studies and a discussion of experiences to date of accelerated access schemes. The conclusions from the workshop will be captured in a report, which will be published. Further follow-up guidance may be considered.
