Objectives of the Conference
The APIC/CEFIC Conference on Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients is Europe’s leading event. Many major stakeholders from Authorities and the Industry are each year joining this Conference. Speakers from FDA, EMA, EDQM, National Authorities, from Industry and Industry Associations will discuss the latest developments in the field of GMP and Regulatory Compliance.
The GMP Conference, of which the final part is a Joint GMP & RA session, provides updates from the European and US Authorities on recent initiatives, activities and interpretations related to GMP compliance of API manufacturing. Hear from industry speakers their approaches and best practices on compliance related to the various existing and emerging aspects of API GMP.
The conference will be opened by a presentation about an update of FDA’s current quality initiatives followed by a presentation about the industry’s view on API Quality Metrics. Four more presentations are dedicated to the current Inspection findings with respect to data integrity, the contribution of the API industry to avoid drug shortages, the
new GDP requirements and first experiences with the new ICH Q3D guideline about elemental impurities.
In the Joint GMP and Regulatory Affairs part of the conference you will hear presentations about the implications of the ICH Q12 Guideline for the API industry and about an update from Health Canada regarding API regulatory requirements. Two more lectures about quality and regulatory expectations of the API industry customers and activities regarding ICH Q11 will round off this part of the conference.
The specific GMP and Regulatory Affairs topics to be discussed in the Parallel Sessions will relate to current regulatory challenges, special API related aspects of emerging markets, the manufacture of highly potent APIs, quality agreements and the implementation of the new Q/ Q&A document.
The Parallel Sessions are no workshops. They are practically oriented and supposed to be highly interactive.
