My name is Christos. I am working for a generic company and i would like to rise a question on your post. According to this EMA publication and the Question and Answers, it is clear that you cannot use a reference for a bioequivalence study which is sourced from UK if the marketing authorization for the application is not possible to be granted before 30 March 2019. What is not clear, in my opinion, is the requirement the manufacturer site (or the responsible for the batch release site) not to be located in UK. In other words, could we use the same reference product sourced from France as an example, and the manufacturer/release site to be in UK??
Do you or someone else know anything about that?
And if it is a requirement how someone could face the issue that some references write on the PIL two or more manufacturing sites, one in UK and the others in the rest EU?? We faced this problem and the majority of the pharmaceutical warehouses could not provided us any further information.
Thank you very much in advance,
