Regulatory inspectors from PIC/S and members of PDA developed this training course based on ICH Q7, taking into account the latest regulatory developments which impact APIs.

This course will be held by inspectors and industry experts. It will start with an overview and provide background of API regulation. All 19 sections of Q7 will be covered.

Inspectors will share observations from API manufacturing sites and there will be plenty of time to discuss in detail how to prepare for an inspection. Course participants will have the unique opportunity to receive answers to their specific questions.

PDA believes there is no better way to get first-hand information about the current best-practice in API manufacturing and all related activities.
