Overview

Dear Colleagues,

The manufacture of drugs, drug products, and combination products is one of the most closely regulated activities in the industry. The core of Good Manufacturing Practice is defined and determined by a variety of guidelines and regulations issued and updated regularly by national and international authorities. These have direct implications for the development, manufacturing, and reliable distribution of pharmaceutical products in regular times and even more so during a pandemic.

This and more will be the focus of the 2021 PDA Quality and Regulations Conference, set to take place online 19-20 October!

By joining this two-day event, you will be presented the most current and thorough information on recent and most important changes in the regulatory landscape. Receive direct feedback on your questions from distinguished experts in live Q&A and discussion sessions!

In the era of breakthrough medicinal therapies and technologies, accelerated R&D, Lifecycle and Change Management, Knowledge and Risk Management become pivotal milestones to ensure availability of these drugs.

Dive into the new decade with PDA by exploring digital solutions in Quality and don’t miss out on learnings on Control & Risk Strategies and the latest trends!

We look forward to welcoming you online this Fall!

Sincerely,

The Chairs
