The ICH Management Committee (MC) is the body that oversees operational aspects of ICH on behalf of all Members, including administrative and financial matters and oversight of the Working Groups (WGs). The MC is responsible for submitting recommendations or proposals to the Assembly in preparation of Assembly discussions.

To date, the ICH MC has representatives from the six Founding Members (EC, Europe / EFPIA / FDA, US / JPMA / MHLW/PMDA, Japan / PhRMA), Standing Regulatory Members (Health Canada, Canada / Swissmedic, Switzerland) as well as Standing Observers (IFPMA, WHO).

The minutes of ICH MC face-to-face meetings, and summary reports of teleconferences held between meetings, are published on the ICH website summarising the main decisions taken by the ICH MC (see related links).
