First safe dilution
The second list of First Safe Dilutions has been published by Homeopathic Medicinal Products Working Group (HMPWG) for public consultation. It includes 52 substances and follows on from the First List of First Safe Dilutions, adopted by HMPWG in November 2016.
ECHAMP is collating comments on the second list and hopes that some important considerations will be taken on board.
The deadline for comments is 16 May and the document is scheduled for discussion in HMPWG 26-27 June. Please send any comments to ECHAMP office by 30 April.
Quality: raw material
ECHAMP has submitted comments on the HMPWG Question & Answers document on quality. In addition to addressing the questions raised by HMPWG on the topic of raw material and the suppliers of raw materials, we also drew attention to our position paper, ‘Justification for the practice of not fixing the supplier of certain raw materials in the homeopathic medicinal product dossier’, published on 24 April 2015.
Fifth list of justified stocks
ECHAMP also submitted comments on the HMPWG Fifth list of justified stocks, giving careful and substantiated corrections to this new document. We still hope to see the inclusion in this final document of the bibliographic reference used as the basis for the assessment of each stock.
