Implementation of Post Registration Variation Guidelines for Pharmaceutical and Biological Products (2nd Edition)

The Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) has recently released the 2nd Edition of the Post Registration Variation Guidelines for pharmaceutical and biological drug products. These guidelines provide essential information for submitting post-registration variation applications by registration holders and marketing authorization holders of drug products. The guidelines distinguish between minor variations (MiV-N, MiV-PA) and major variations (MaV), with specific timelines for each type. Applicants are required to adhere to the prescribed “Form” and documentation requirements when submitting variation applications.
