New data requirements (DR)
•
New data requirements published in April 2013
•
Apply to all a.s. and PPP dossiers as from 1 January 2016
•
Transitional measures create problems for:
- PPP dossier submissions after 1 January 2016, containing
- a.s. of AIR2, or
- new a.s. submitted before 31 December 2013
- because of non-peer-reviewed information in the a.s. dossier

New data requirements (DR)
•
Possible solution:
•
old DR exceptionally continue to apply
•
to a.s. dossiers in PPP submissions
•
containing a.s. to which the old DR still apply (new a.s., AIR2)
•
No problems with applying new data requirements for PPP dossier
in all cases as foreseen
•
Amended GD and draft Reg. to be presented to SCFCAH in March

Zonal System
•
Recent analyses from industry and MS on the functioning
•
System is not yet working according to desire
•
Yet, no thorough analysis: figures presented too divergent
•
Complexity of the zonal vs. national authorisation:
- Failure to comply with deadlines
- Resource problems
- Lack of streamlining in the procedure
•
COM dedicated to the principle of mutual recognition and keen to
enhance the functioning
