IPEC Europe represented at AFI symposium

IPEC Europe attended the annual Associazione Farmaceutici Industria (AFI) symposium in Italy in early June, with vice-chair Frank Milek delivering a presentation to delegates on the topic of "Activities for Excipients GMP Compliance" and IPEC Europe running a stand in the associated exhibition area.

The conference – attended by around 1,200 people who were mainly from Italy-based mid-sized drug product manufacturers – took place from 7 to 9 June in the Rimini congress centre and covered a broad range of topics including pharmaceutical quality, formulation, manufacturing, regulatory affairs, clinical development and supply chain .

Milek's presentation covered the regulatory environment for excipients and explained how IPEC Europe works help industry remain in compliance with those regulations, through the development of guidelines and tools and collaboration with sister IPECs around the world as well as other international trade associations and regulators.

Whilst at the show Milek had a fruitful discussion with the AFI president about the possibility of IPEC Europe running an event in Italy in 2018 – with AFI support – and this will be explored further in the coming months.
