Event News

Prepare for Changing Regulations

Regulatory changes are already frequent within the world of clinical supplies, however there is even further uncertainty following the election of Trump, and Brexit. Many sponsor companies worldwide are asking how the regulations of the supply chain may continue to change. This event will prove a key meeting point for delegates to discuss how they can prepare for inbound or active regulatory changes which will happen as a result of political changes.

Driving Efficiency through your Supply Chain

Efficiency within clinical supply chain remains a key priority for current sponsor companies. This year we will be offered a brand new perspective on the use of single sites for multiple studies.

Getting to grips with Annex 16

With the latest update of Annex 16 being introduced last year, implications have begun to emerge within clinical supply. The regulation, approved by the European Commission, specifically outlines the responsibilities of a Qualified Person (QP), in particular to approving and releasing batches. In order to achieve this, there are several procedures which clinical supply companies must follow and as a result the QP’s workload has risen. How will this affect clinical supply?

Who Should Attend?

Primary delegates for this event are those with responsibility for clinical supply in biotech and pharma companies in the Northern California region, also welcoming those from Oregon and Washington.

The Trump Impact

Following the election in November 2016, a new era is beginning to surface as Donald Trump becomes the 45th president of United States. The dramatic impact he has made to the clinical trial supply industry prior to his inauguration has sent shockwaves to the stock market, and if words have caused this much damage, his changes to regulations and laws will surely alter the business landscape in clinical trial supply.
