Guide on Pharmaceutical Water

In April 2017, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) issued a concept paper with the purpose of update and revise the Note for Guidance on Quality of water for pharmaceutical use (CPMP/QWP/158/01 EMEA/CVMP/115/01). This guideline was originally adopted in May 2002 and came into operation on 1st June 2002. 

Since 2002, discussions have been held for many years as to whether there is a need to include non-distillation technologies as a method for production of water for injections (WFI)  and eventually, during its 154th Session, the Ph. Eur. Commission adopted a revision of the  monograph for Water for Injections (0169) allowing the use of non-distillation technologies for WFI production  (the revised monograph was published in the Ph. Eur. Supplement 9.1).
