Word of the Chair
Dear IPEC Europe members,
A busy month lies behind us. In October many people in the 'excipient world' were highly active in their business. IPEC Europe organized jointly with APV the 2013 excipient conference in Berlin, and you can read more about this here. Furthermore, almost all of us met somehow and somewhere at CPhI in Frankfurt. Our 'baby' EXCiPACT was present there with its own booth during the entire show.
Meanwhile, a lot of activities are ongoing in the working committees and contacts with stakeholders took place. For example, the IPEC proposal for the revision of the WHO GTDP Guide was discussed by the WHO expert committee in October and will be further developed, taking into account IPEC's thoughts.
The task force contributing to the significant change guide revision met in Europe and reached further milestones in the development of this revised guide. We are also preparing for the next IPEC Federation board meeting and ExcipientFest Asia in November in Beijing where IPEC Europe will be very well represented.
Last but not least I would like to remind you about our upcoming annual seminar in Cannes and our annual general meeting of the association end of January 2014. You will find the program and the registration form in this newsletter. I wish you all a successful rest of year and hope to meet you all in Cannes.
Thanks for your contributions to IPEC Europe and best regards,
Chair of IPEC Europe
