cGMP Annex 1 Workshop

The final version of the EMA revised Annex 1 was published on August 25, 2022, seven years after the revision process started. The revised annex becomes effective on August 25, 2023, except for section 8.123, which contains the requirement for lyophilisers that are manually loaded or unloaded with no barrier technology separation to be sterilised before each load, which becomes effective one year later, on August 25, 2024.

The final draft has 59 pages, which is dramatically longer than the 16-page 2008 version. This revision is a complete rewrite of the annex and was a joint EU, PIC/S, and WHO project, with US FDA personnel actively involved. The new Annex 1 revision must be implemented within one year of its issuance, by August 25, 2023.

The cGMP Annex 1 Workshop will feature industry experts who will provide practical solutions for implementation of the new guidelines at your organisation. These experts were intensely working on commenting and developing solutions for Annex 1 changes throughout the entire seven-year process since the publishing of the first draft of this virtually new guidance. They will provide a unique expertise on the gap issues you may have in your facility regarding Annex 1 implementation and can recommend a viable path forward. Attending this workshop will help your organisation avoid regulatory scrutiny and numerous observations.

4th Extractables & Leachables Summit

The characterisation of extractables and leachables (E&L) for drugs, biologics, medical devices and drug-device combination products to ensure product safety has matured in the last periods, and today we all are waiting in anticipation for the publication of the ICH Q3E guideline on E&L.

Since more new and complex pharmaceutical manufacturing and delivery systems are progressing towards development, a variety of ongoing practical considerations and insights around E&L are accumulated, the current E&L regulations are evolving, and new regulatory requirements are coming.

The analytical, toxicological, and regulatory experts in the E&L area will elaborate on ensuring the safety, quality, compatibility, and regulatory compliance for drugs, biologics, medical devices, and combination products.

Explore technical presentations and practical case studies, participate in Q&As and interactive panel discussions, and leverage win-win strategies, perspectives, and partnership opportunities at the 4th Extractables & Leachables (E&L) Summit on May 10-11, 2023.
