GMP & Engineering Forum

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

The 2019 National Life Science GMP & Engineering Forum is taking place on the 22nd and 23rd July 2019

GMP & Engineering Forum 2018

The 2018 GMP, Engineering & Validation Forum was our eight forum, in 2018 we shared exciting ideas and experiences around industry hot topics and innovation. This year as are particularly excited to add a Medicinal Cannabis Track. However, we need your help as we plan to discuss, debate and listen to thought leaders on subjects like Industry 4.0, Pharma 4.0, Additive Manufacturing, Big Data, Data Integrity, Quality Metrics, PIC/S Version 13, (specifically – Part 1, Annex 11 and Annex 15) and other massive changes in the industry.


Take a look at the jam packed schedule, 4 tracks covering a full range of topics, now including international speakers on Medicinal Cannabis.

There will be 4 tracks –

1 – GMP and Validation for non sterile manufacturing (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 and industry experts speaking on the difficulty implementing the new guide.

2 – GMP and Validation for sterile manufacturing and the new draft Annex 1 

With the release of the PIC/S GMPs and the draft Annex 1, there is no better time to reflect on our sterile manufacturing operations, and the impact of the new Annex 15, i.e. 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.

4 – Medicinal Cannabis 

As Australia’s leading consultancy in navigating through the regulatory and design options for Medicinal Cannabis, PharmOut is uniquely positioned to facilitate and provide assistance in this area.

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?
