Standards Development Volunteers

PDA is very pleased to announce the launch of its standards development program! We are seeking volunteers to assist in developing, writing and fine-tuning one (or both) of the following proposed standards:

  • BSR/PDA Standard 01-201x, Enhanced Purchasing Controls to Support the Bio-Pharmaceutical, Pharmaceutical, Medical Devices and Combination Products Industries (new standard)
  • BSR/PDA Standard 02-201x, Cryopreservation of Cells for Use in Cell Therapies and Regenerative Medicine Manufacturing (new standard)

The deadline to submit a notification of interest is Sept. 28. Nominees/volunteers should have knowledge or experience in the specific areas outlined in the proposal and must apply by contacting PDA’s Standards Manager.

Spanish Technical Report Translator

PDA is currently looking for a volunteer fluent in both English and Spanish interested in translating technical documents, such as PDA technical reports, into Spanish. In addition, PDA is also seeking volunteers to serve on a Translation Review Committee who will review translated technical reports by comparing them to the original English version for the purposes of determining their accuracy.

PDA Journal Editorial Board

PDA is establishing an all-volunteer Editorial Board for the PDA Journal of Pharmaceutical Science and Technology comprising qualified experts with working knowledge of existing and/or emerging science and technologies important to PDA members. This expertise should include, but is not limited to, the following areas: aseptic processing/sterilization, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing science, supply chain, packaging science, drug delivery, pharmaceutical microbiology and viral clearance.

Both the technical report translator and editorial board opportunities are open until filled. To apply or ask questions regarding the time commitments, responsibilities, etc., contact the Volunteer Coordinator.
