Word of the Chair
Dear IPEC Europe members,
This edition of Excipients Insight features highlights of our annual excipient forum - held in Nice in early February - which included a packed programme of presentations and discussion on various developments in the areas of excipients regulation and technology. This year we were proud to welcome speakers from WHO, EDQM, USP, our sister associations and other specialists from various fields.
The sell-out forum - with 120 participants - was followed by a marvellous gala dinner in the remarkable atmosphere of Hotel Negresco. Surrounded by art and architecture participants could enjoy good French food, wine and swinging jazz music.
During our annual general meeting the day after we discussed the strategy and direction of the association, and we were delighted to see the high degree of representation of our member companies in this meeting. We also received reports from IPEC Americas, IPEC Japan and IPEC China about their activities.
The objectives presented by the chairs of the working committees are also summarised in this newsletter. Furthermore, you will find some news about current regulatory topics summarised for your information.
Enjoy reading and kind regards
Chair of IPEC Europe
