About Us

The PDA Israel Chapter was founded in 1997 and is made up of the Executive committee, including the president, president-elect, treasurer and liaison with international PDA, and the Steering Committee.

The Chapter endeavors to provide the participants with resources for scientific and technical information and educational opportunities. It facilitates meetings and exchange of information with industry representatives from large and small companies, biotech manufacturers, medical device manufacturers, equipment vendors, Ministry of Health officials, academics and consultants. The meetings allow to exchange evolving information on the latest guidances and regulations concerning pharmaceutical operations and regulatory requirements. These meetings are either Seminars (both online and in-person), or Conferences and Meetings. In addition, the Chapter provides access to PDA Israel seminars and webinars materials through the PDA Israel website ( https://www.pdaisrael.co.il).
