SGS is proud to be a gold sponsor of the 2018 ExcipientFest Americas – the Industry's Leading Expo and Conference for Regulatory, Science and Supply Chain Education.

SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, is proud to be a gold sponsor of the 2018 ExcipientFest Americas – the Industry's Leading Expo and Conference for Regulatory, Science and Supply Chain Education.

 

Attracting pharmaceutical scientists from the Americas and around the world, this unique two-day forum for cutting-edge scientific developments takes place at Marriott Stellaris Hotel & Casino in San Juan, Puerto Rico from April 30 until May 2.

 

ExcipientFest features in-depth technical talks on Excipient Technology, New Drug Applications and Regulatory Issues from industry’s top-pharmaceutical experts. The seminar is designed to have a total science focus and to be true to the role of functionality of pharma ingredients in the formulation process.

 

Andrew Cole, Technical Product Manager at SGS North America will lead an in-depth workshop: ‘Supply Chain Compliance and Auditing on Monday, April 30, 9am-12 noon and an Education Session: ‘FDA/EU Requirements for Excipients Directive 2011/62/EU – Falsified Medicines Directive’ on Tuesday May 1, 1.30-2.15pm – Hall B.

 

Andrew said: “Quality Management System (QMS) and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines have recently migrated from a compliance-based approach to a risk-based approach, (effectively pushing risk downstream to ensure the integrity and efficacy of the product at all levels). 

 

“My workshop will show the affect this will have on businesses and how, by keeping it simple, following plans and conducting periodic reviews, compliance need not be complicated or costly. Attendees will benefit from a comprehensive overview of the compliance process from risk assessment through to the audit process and/or certification; I’ll explore what this entails and identify all the necessary steps and potential pitfalls that lead from inception to completion.”

 

With specialists in every industry and sector throughout the world, SGS’s audit, certification and verification services cover the entire value chain from product certification to process, organization, service and systems certification.  SGS is well known in the marketplace as a benchmark for assurance, giving organizations the confidence needed to access new markets and establish new business.

 

ExcipientFest takes place at Marriott Stellaris Hotel & Casino - San Juan, Puerto Rico from 30 April to 2 May 2018.
