The PQR will capture a broader view of product data, capturing trends and will help determine the need for revalidation and changes, if any.

  6. 6. The EU Requirements for PQR(2)• Such reviews should normally be conducted and documented annually, taking into account previous reviews, and should include at least:(i) A review of starting materials including packaging materials used in the product, especially those from new sources and in particular the review of supply chain traceability of active substances.(ii) A review of critical in-process controls and finished product results.(iii) A review of all batches that failed to meet established specification(s) and their investigation.(iv) A review of all significant deviations or non-conformances, their related investigations, and the effectiveness of resultant corrective and preventive actions taken.
  7. 7. The EU Requirements for PQR(3)(v) A review of all changes carried out to the processes or analytical methods.(vi) A review of Marketing Authorisation variations submitted, granted or refused, including those for third country (export only) dossiers.(vii) A review of the results of the stability monitoring programme and any adverse trends.(viii) A review of all quality-related returns, complaints and recalls and the investigations performed at the time.(ix) A review of adequacy of any other previous product process or equipment corrective actions.
  8. 8. The EU Requirements for PQR(4)(x) For new marketing authorisations and variations to marketingauthorisations, a review of post-marketing commitments.(xi) The qualification status of relevant equipment and utilities, e.g. HVAC, water, compressed gases, etc.(xii) A review of any contractual arrangements as defined in Chapter 7 to ensure that they are up to date.
