GMP & Engineering Forum

GMP & Engineering Forum 2018

A Better Australian Life Science Manufacturing Industry by Design – the National Life Science Forum.

The 2018 National Life Science GMP & Engineering Forum is taking place on the 6 – 7th August 2018

This is the fourth year of the GMP & Engineering Forum and in 2018 we will continue to share exciting ideas and experiences around industry hot topics and innovation. However, we need your help as we plan to discuss, debate and listen to thought leaders on subjects like Industry 4.0, Data Integrity, Quality Metrics, PIC/S Version 13, (specifically – Part 1, Annex 11 and Annex 15) and other massive changes in the industry.

There will be 3 main tracks –

1 – Non sterile manufacturing (upcoming PIC/S Version 13)

Following the well supported training on PIC/S version 13 and now as the TGA adopt version 13, we have honed our points to consider, and now have many practical tips.

2 – Sterile manufacturing and the new Annex 1 (due sometimes soon)

As we did last year, we focused on Sterile Manufacturing and Points to consider, emerging RM Methods and the Annex 15, compulsory user requirements specifications, qualification and validation update which is about to “hit” Australia, why not join us in the leading discussion in Australia.

3 – Engineering and Architecture

We will have a dedicated track for Engineers by Engineers – and a few Pharmaceutical Architects too! We will be talking about designing and building tablet plants, sterile manufacturing plants and a special session on Complementary Medicines manufacturing plants.

In 2018, with the help from the speakers and sponsors we plan to facilitate the 8th GMP & Validation Forum, we looking are looking for your help. Want to know more? Have a look at the forum schedule.
