Who are we?

A powerful voice in Europe since 1992, the International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council Europe (in short, IPEC Europe) brings producers, distributors and users of pharmaceutical excipients together in one place. We provide a welcoming environment to share experiences and knowledge to learn and to lead the future of excipients.

Our mission

Our members engage in an open dialogue with one clear mission: quality excipients for medicines. We develop and promote harmonised guidelines to create the appropriate quality and functionality standards to improve patient safety. 
Our internationally accepted guidelines give recognition to the value of our collaborative efforts.
