EU GMP Chapter 6 on Quality Control has now been finalised and will be effective from 1st October 2014. The reasons for change on the new document are summarised as: "Inclusion of a new section on Technical transfer of testing methods and other items such as out of specification results."
The finalised document is mostly similar (a few of the proposed changes have not made it in) to the proposed draft that I reviewed in two blog posts last year.
The new section on method transfer is summarised in the first blog:
