IPEC Europe sets up contact packaging taskforce

Increasingly, excipient suppliers are receiving questions about primary packaging materials (PPM) from customers as to whether PPMs for excipients meet pharma and other industry requirements. An example was quoted related to polyethylene bags and did they meet the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) requirements for olefins.

As there is no formal position with IPEC on this topic, a task force has been convened to review available information to help IPEC members understand where excipients and the primary containers used to supply them ‘sit’ in this arena. If you would like to get involved in this important project please let the IPEC Europe secretariat know.
