These agreements benefit regulators by reducing dual controls in any other area, allowing for a greater focus on sites likely to be at higher risk and increased coverage of global supply chain inspections. The transition period for human-use drugs under the agreement ended on July 11, 2019: on November 1, 2018, Health Canada and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) Australia reached an agreement on the inclusion of IPAs in the scope of the Mutual Recognition Agreement on drug review and certification. As a result, the TGA accepts GMP (or equivalent) certifications issued by Health Canada under this MRA for IPAs produced in Canada in support of a GMP clearance application. During a transitional period, the authorities assess each other`s pharmaceutical legislation, guidelines and regulatory systems under the agreement. There is a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) between Australia and the European Community that provides mutual recognition of the medical device compliance assessment. We have a cooperation agreement with the FDA. We accept U.S. FDA evidence regarding GMP marketing authorization applications using the CV pathway, regardless of inspection procedure, as long as the inspection has been conducted with a comparable GMP standard. Trade agreements are trade agreements designed to facilitate market access and promote greater international harmonization of compliance standards while protecting consumer safety.
Australia and the United Kingdom (United Kingdom) have signed an MRA on compliance assessment, certificates and markings in anticipation of the UK`s exit from the European Union. This MRA also includes recognition of the medical device compliance assessment certification. The table below contains the countries and regulatory authorities with which we currently have a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) or an equivalent agreement/arrangement. The route of registration of GMP for manufacturers controlled by these regulatory authorities depends on the fact that the inspection was carried out within or outside their borders: the MRA with Israel is an agreement for the evaluation of compliance and acceptance of industrial products (ACAA).
