New HMPWG consultation: List of justified homeopathic stocks

Dec 17, 2015

The Homeopathic Medicinal Products Working Group (HMPWG) of the Heads of Medicine Agencies has published two new documents for consultation, relating to the lists of justified homeopathic stocks.

These are non-exhaustive lists, intended to act as a reliable reference document for applications for special, simplified registration of homeopathic medicinal products, which require the justification for homeopathic use of a stock on the basis of an adequate bibliography.

The lists include:

  • the name(s) of the stocks, in accordance with the German Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia or the Pharmacopée Franҫaise
  • a reference to the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) and/or in absence thereof a Pharmacopoeia currently used officially in the Member States
  • definition of the raw material.

The following new documents have been released for consultation:

Preamble to the consolidated list of justified homeopathic stocks

This draft document is based on the document, ‘Preamble to the first list of Justified homeopathic stocks,’ and seeks to clarify how the list was compiled and how it should be used.

Fourth list of justified stocks

This draft list includes a further 65 stocks for which homeopathic use is considered satisfactorily justified, in addition to those stocks included in the first, second and third lists of justified stocks.

ECHAMP will be submitting feedback to the HMPWG in response to this consultation. If you would like to contribute to our response, please send your comments to office[at] before 15 January 2016.
