The International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council Federation, (IPEC Federation) announces the availability of the new Excipient Information Package User Guide and Template, Part IV: Sustainability.
This guide is applicable globally.
The original IPEC Excipient Information Package (EIP) was developed as a means of efficiently communicating a significant amount of information about the excipient (Part I), the excipient manufacturer (Part II) and the distribution and supply chain (Part III). The information provided facilitates and aids the excipient user in their qualification of the excipient supplier and the excipient.
This Part IV of the EIP focuses on sustainability matters relating the excipient supplier and the excipient(s). The information provided by the excipient supplier using this part of the EIP is generally expected to provide suitable and sufficient information related to sustainability policies and commitments made by the excipient supplier, thus aiding the excipient users’ own commitments to sustainability.
The guide will be available, initially exclusively to IPEC members for a three-month period, on the IPEC Federation and national/regional members’ websites. Thereafter, the guide will be made available to the general public: Guidelines
