Word of the Chair
Summer time is holiday time! Traditionally in July and August there are fewer meetings and activities in industry because so many people are on vacation. Nevertheless, this month we can present a newsletter which gathers some interesting information about current activities of our association and the "world around us".
Most notably we achieved a major milestone with the granting of the first EXCiPACT certificates, showing that this major project we are contributing to is going in the right direction. We are also happy that the revision of the Significant Change Guide we are collaborating on with IPEC-Americas is on track.
Amongst other developments of note, we have founded a task force to contribute more intensively to international projects being undertaken by the IPEC Federation, and before the summer break we also finalised responses within the public consultation processes for draft regulations on the EU risk assessment guide for excipient GMP and the revision of chapter 5 of the EU GMP Part I guidelines. Thank you to all of you who contributed to these activities. We need our membership to respond to such regulatory initiatives in a timely manner.
Enjoy reading this Excipient Insight newsletter and also enjoy your summer break 'to recharge your personal batteries!'
Hope to see you in Berlin on 1-2 October at our IPEC-APV Conference.
Chair of IPEC Europe
