I would like to share with you the good news of the online publication of the “Technical Supplements to Annex 9: Model guidance for the storage and transport of time- and temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products” (a total of 447 pages). Our dear friend Andrew GARNETT was the series editor for the 16 technical supplements in addition to authoring four and co-authoring one of the supplements. This whole work would have not been possible without him. It was an intense 2-years of work to put these documents together. I miss him dearly…
I would like to thank all authors for bringing these technical supplements to life. I am sure that they will fill a big gap in the management of pharmaceuticals and will be used as reference materials by many individuals, institutions, organizations, agencies and the industry. Please share the links as widely you can.
