APV/IPEC Europe Excipient Conference 2017  | KN 3177

– An update on regulatory and application developments 19.09. - 20.09.2017 | Berlin, Germany


Hotel Riu Plaza Berlin
Martin-Luther-Straße 1

Dear Colleagues,

IPEC Europe and APV are delighted to invite you to our 6th annual conference on pharmaceutical excipients.

The conference will focus on “hot topics” in the area of excipient regulation and technology. In contrast to the market for finished drugs and active pharmaceutical ingredients the market for excipients is extremely difficult to quantify. For the first time one lecture of the conference will provide an overview of the global excipients market with the focus on oral solid dosage forms.

As part of the programme we will offer three parallel workshops to provide practical, hands-on insight and discussion on pressing regulatory topics, with a view to developing joint solutions. These workshops will focus on data integrity in excipient manufacture and supply chain, quality agreements and stability testing of excipients.

Beyond that the regulatory session will highlight the multifaceted challenges to ensure excipient compliance such as multi-compendial compliance of excipients, excipient packaging systems and excipient supply chain. How to verify that excipient suppliers work in compliance with the regulations and the transport of excipients will be reviewed too.

The technical and scientific part of the conference will deal with important excipient functionalities such as diluents for direct compression, the role of excipients in inhalation drugs and transdermal drug delivery. Further topics will be the requirements of excipients for continuous manufacturing processes and the impact that excipient grades have on the bioequivalence of generic drugs.

Last but not least networking and exchange of information is a key feature of the event and table-top exhibitions aligned to the conference will encourage communication between suppliers and users.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin.
