Word of the Chair
Dear IPEC Europe Members,
Everybody is now preparing for the summer break with a lot of things to be finalised and with a limited vision of all the things happening around us. Nevertheless, we would like to draw your attention to some important news and information about the regulatory environment for excipients and IPEC activities.
You will find in this edition of Excipients Insight summaries about legislative initiatives of the Chinese, Brazilian, US and European authorities with potential impact on pharmaceutical excipients. It is very important that IPEC monitors these developments and provides comments to the regulators before such regulation are put in place. Therefore, please consider always when you are approached by the IPEC Europe secretariat to provide your valued input on such legislative proposals so that we can prepare a comprehensive, well established and consistent IPEC Europe or IPEC Federation position to the regulators.
Furthermore, we welcome and introduce two new board members to IPEC Europe in this issue and would like to invite you to our 2nd European Conference on Pharmaceutical Excipients in November. Last but not least, you can find information about the last IPEC Federation and PDG meetings held in June in Tokyo, hosted by IPEC Japan.
So, enjoy reading this latest edition of Excipients Insight and of course enjoy your summer vacation.
(Chair to the IPEC Europe Board)
