Problem statements (from the concept paper)

  • What is the minimum a Qualified Person (QP) must personally carry out when certifying a batch?
  • What are the prerequisites for relying on statements from persons other than fellow QPs?
  • How is the Control Strategy and the batch certification release process linked?
  • What are the expectations for QPs reviewing batch records manufactured by third parties in third countries?
  • What knowledge should a QP have about the site(s) involved in the manufacturing of a batch?
  • What actions are expected from the QP when a batch cannot be certified and therefore released?
