The presentation “Which comes first: Regulatory Information Management (RIM) or ISO Identification of Medicinal Products (IDMP)?” was given by Deborah Cooper, Vice President Consulting at GENPACT Pharmalink, at LORENZ userBridge.15 in Vienna, Austria.

The ISO IDMP Standard and Iterative Implementation Roadmap
Based on EU Commission Implementing Regulation No 520/2012 (articles 25 and 26), the EMA is in the process of implementing the five ISO standards for IDMP (ISO 11238, 11239, 11240, 11615 and 11616). This should simplify the exchange of information between regulatory authorities, enhancing the interoperability of systems at EU level and internationally. The European Commission, the European Union (EU) Network Data Board and the EU ISO IDMP Task Force have endorsed a phased implementation of the ISO IDMP standards.
