With Richard Bonner we'll continue to receive the necessary support, and we're happy he accepted this responsibility", said Daniel Scheidegger, ECA Chairman and Vice President Operations and Managing Director of Genzyme Pharmaceuticals, Liestal, Switzerland.

About the ECA

Founded as an independent organization in 1999, the European Compliance Academy's (ECA) goal is to facilitate the move towards a harmonized set of GMP and regulatory guidelines. It supports the Pharmaceutical Industry and Regulators through providing information on and interpretation of new or updated guidances. For that purpose the ECA developed a range of tools like the GMP Guideline Manager CD-ROM, and also organizes international education courses, webinars and conferences around GMP, regulatory compliance and currently discussed subjects.
