Pharmacopoeial Review & Harmonization Committee - have your say!

2017 proved to be a transitional year for the Pharmacopoeial Review & Harmonisation Committee, following the departure of the chair and vice-chair in 2016. While some activities took place – including a face-to-face Committee meeting and representation at meetings with the Chinese Pharmacopeia and IPEC Federation/Pharmacopoeial Discussion Group (PDG) – the primary task is now to re-design and revitalise the group.

Committee member Tim McArragher said the immediate goal is for the IPEC Europe secretariat to conduct a survey of members to try to understand their needs with regards to harmonization and pharmacopoeial review, and to develop objectives that are aligned with the requirements of members and the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.).

The survey will be sent out shortly by the IPEC Europe Secretariat. Please let us know your thoughts when received – and be sure to forward it to other representatives in your company if appropriate – so we can ensure the new Committee gets off to a flying start! And of course don’t hesitate to put yourself forward if you would like to claim a position on the Committee in 2018.
