The approval of clinical trials by the competent authorities requires comprehensive quality documentation on the new drug to be used on the clinical trial participant. In the EU quality data is summarized as Investigational Medicinal Product Dossier (IMPD), in the USA as Investigational New Drug (IND) Application. For that, several preconditions concerning production, quality control, and assurance have to be fulfilled. Here, specific requirements related to mRNA vaccines are addressed on the basis of European standards.
