GMP Forums and Pharmaceutical Industry Conferences

Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industry Conferences for 2023 (Australia and New Zealand / Asia-Oceania) 

GMP Forums – Started over 10 years ago (in 2011), with the support of progressive TGA staff, industry — and with a genuine non-profit making attitude — the PharmOut annual GMP Forums have become the leading Regional GMP forums and Pharmaceutical industry conferences being held in the Asia-Pacific region.

Held in Melbourne, Australia, the GMP Forum focuses on ‘Pharma 4.0’ innovations and industry trends. Covering key topics such as GMP compliance, qualification & validation, TGA regulatory auditing trends, advances in pharmaceutical architecture and cleanroom designs/HVAC engineering, the PharmOut team views the GMP Forum as a way to give back to the industry, and to thank GMP leaders for their loyal support.

The focus of our National GMP forums is to bring together all areas of the pharmaceutical, medical device and veterinary medicines manufacturing industry to disseminate, display and debate new ideas, changes and innovations, and technological advances impacting the industry.

The GMP Forum brings up-to-date industry trends and technological advances to Quality experts and business owners in Australia.

History of National GMP Forums organised by PharmOut

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.

Into the future, we will continue to share exciting ideas and experiences around the industry, including TGA and FDA trend findings, CAPA, GDP, Validation and Cleanroom engineering, and other hot topics and innovations impacting the future of the pharmaceutical industry and medical device manufacturing as well as veterinary medicine manufacturers and distributors.
