European Investigational Medicinal Product Dossier - EU IMPD

The European Investigational Medicinal Product Dossier is a document used to support the investigational use of a medicinal product in clinical trials within the European Union (EU). It is similar to the scientific part of US IND (Investigational New Drug) application. The sponsor is responsible for the content of the EU IMPD and for ensuring that it is kept up to date throughout the clinical trial.



What is included in an IMPD?


The IMPD includes summary data on the quality of the manufacturing and management of the Investigational Medicinal Product – IMP (including references and placebos).


The EU IMPD must include the background information on the quality, nonclinical and clinical development of the investigational product up to the clinical trial. Nonclinical and clinical parts are very often a cross-reference to the Investigator Brochure data.
