The 2020 National GMP Forum Dates: 15-16 March 2021

Review of the GMP Forum last year:

In 2019, PharmOut facilitated the National GMP Forum including hot topics in manufacturing, engineering and validation (our 8th National GMP forum)

During that event, industry professionals and national GMP experts shared exciting ideas and experiences around the industry’s hottest topics, including:

  • pharmaceutical water testing (real-time)
  • critical systems auditing
  • new generation medicines
  • medicinal cannabis cultivation considerations and ODC production licenses
  • technological innovations and advances
  • the power of leading changes and mindset in adapting to industry disruptions
  • regulatory changes and data integrity requirements
  • TGA audit trends – where the gaps are
  • latest pharmaceutical facility and systems designs/cleanroom engineering
  • engineering innovation and efficiency designs

The event was well attended, and we expect the same for 2020, as we again host the Annual National GMP Forum in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
