Word of the Chair
Summer time is holiday time! Traditionally in these months there are fewer meetings and activities because a lot of people are on vacation. Nevertheless, this edition of our newsletter gathers some of the latest information about our association, as well as developments in the regulatory world around us. In particular, I draw your attention to the compendial topics that can be found in the centre of this issue.
We are also happy to report that EXCiPACT is developing well, while ExcipientFest Europe which took place in late June was a great success and generated good feedback. Furthermore, we have founded our own office in Brussels and have now been operational there for one month.
The next important event we are looking forward to will be the IPEC/APV Conference on pharmaceutical excipients in its 4th revision in Düsseldorf on 23-24 September. Please review the programme, there are surely some interesting subjects for your business covered in this two-day conference, which this year will be combined with a workshop.
Enjoy reading this month's Excipients Insight and also enjoy your summer break “to refill your personal batteries”!
Hope to see you in Düsseldorf in September.
