In June 2013, the ICH Steering Committee adopted a new format for the GCG which was incorporated into a standing agenda item of the SC agenda and entitled Global Cooperation (GC) session. The GC session which was established as an evolution of the GCG maintains current GCG arrangements regarding RHIs/DRAs/DoH participation and the scope of activities related to the implementation of ICH Guidelines and capacity building. The GC session also continue to serve as an opportunity to address interest expressed by RHIs and DRAs/DoH in specific ICH topics, with technical experts already present for the ICH week of meetings being invited to give presentations during the GC session.

Since June 2013, a summary of the discussions held at each GC session have been integrated into the ICH Steering Committee report which is made available to the public on the ICH website. This web page archives previous reports from each of the biannual meetings of the ICH Global Cooperation Group (GCG) held from 2004 to 2012. At each GCG meeting, RHI and DRA/DoH representatives could also provide a presentation on their respective initiative/authority and current activities being undertaken that could be of interest to GCG members. These presentations could be found available along with the GCG report.
