The EMA recently announced that they will be delaying the roll-out of the new ISO IDMP standard within Europe until after the completion of the formal Brexit processes. This means that no EU Implementation Guidelines (EU IGs) will be published in 2018, and there will be no need to start submitting product data in the new format in 2019.
It may have caused a disturbance in the industry, but whether you were skeptical about the original implementation deadlines or not, one thing remains - IDMP will still happen, with or without Brexit!
So how should you react? Is this a time to relax and enjoy some spare cycles in your day? Or, is this your opportunity to be proactive and push forward with your plans knowing that IDMP is not only about regulatory standards, but also a significant opportunity for your business to improve its own internal data handling processes?
