Pharmaceutical raw material regulations: latest updates

April 24, 2019

Regulations relative to pharmaceutical production are constantly evolving and shifting their focus on raw materials.

Manufacturing organizations nowadays should not only verify the compliance of their raw materials to the pharmacopoeias of reference but assess and mitigate the risk linked to each element they introduce in the production process as well.

With new markets entering the global drug market, drug manufacturers must adapt such risk assessment to local requirements. China, in particular, represents a huge potential market, but its regulation is often a hard hurdle to overcome.

Manufacturers are thus more and more dependent on the quality and the quantity of information their raw material suppliers can provide.

Meet with your peers and industry leaders on Tuesday, May 7th at the Biotech Training Facility – Bio Science Park in Leiden to better understand these regulations and share experiences on how to overcome the challenges they present in cooperation with your raw material suppliers. We look forward to meeting you!

This event is organized by Merck. 

When: May 7th, 2019 8:30 - 17:00
Where: Biotech Training Facility, Sylviusweg 70, Leiden
