Word of the Chair
Dear IPEC Europe Members,
The May/June edition of Excipients Insight provides some regulatory updates relating to the activities of authorities in Europe, the US and China.
Traditionally there are lots of activities at this time of the year as everybody is preparing for summer break. We tried again to summarise the most important points in a condensed way for your information.
The contamination of gelatin capsules reported from China emphasises once again the necessity for IPEC to work on standards and improvement in the global supply chain of pharmaceutical excipients. In this context, I would like to highlight that our membership of the IPEC Federation helps to achieve this on a global scale in partnership with our “sister organisations” in the USA, Japan and China.
Furthermore, we would like to introduce to you in this EI the recently appointed Secretary General to IPEC Europe
Enjoy reading and kind regards
(Chair to the IPEC Europe Board)
