GMP Forums and Pharmaceutical Industry Conferences

Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industry Conferences for 2020 (Australia and New Zealand / Asia-Oceania) 

GMP Forums – Started in 2011 with the support of progressive TGA staff, industry, and with a genuine non-profit making attitude, the PharmOut annual GMP Forums are now arguably the leading Regional GMP forums and Pharmaceutical industry conferences.

The forums focus on PharmOut’s key areas of consulting; GMP compliance, qualification & validation, TGA regulatory, engineering and architectural and the PharmOut team sees it as a way to give back to industry for the their loyal support.

The focus of our National GMP forums is to bring together all areas of industry to disseminate, display and debate new ideas, changes and innovations, technological advances impacting the industry and other important information about pharmaceutical production, validation, engineering, drug safety and other quality controls.

PharmOut first started the National Engineering, GMP &  Validation Forum in the year of 2011 (the “PharmOut GMP Forums” as they soon become known).

With so much disruption in the pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing industry due to technological advances and PIC/s and ANNEX changes, we proudly brought you the first Pharma 4.0 conference in April 2018.
