Working Group on Quality Review of Documents

The Working Group on Quality Review of Documents (QRD) provides assistance to the European Medicines Agency's scientific committees and to companies on linguistic aspects of the product information for medicines. This includes summaries of product characteristics, labelling and package leaflets.

The QRD's tasks include:

  • ensuring linguistic clarity, consistency and accuracy of the product information;
  • verifying the terminology used in translations and their consistency with the original versions;
  • promoting legibility of product information;
  • reviewing and updating templates for opinions of the scientific committees and for product information, to ensure compliance with European Union (EU) rules on medicinal products and taking practical experience into account;
  • contributing to the development of a common understanding on the implementation of legislation and guidelines in relation to product information and labelling.
