PQRI is hosting a hybrid workshop – TiO2 Use in Pharmaceuticals – Global Regulatory and Technical Challenges to be held on June 13- 14, 2023 at the Bethesda Marriott (5151 Pooks Hill Road, Bethesda, MD).

Workshop Objective: 

The objective of this workshop is to bring together material suppliers, the pharmaceutical industry, and regulatory experts to discuss the impact removing titanium dioxide would have along with the benefits and challenges of the alternatives to titanium dioxide for use in solid oral dosage forms. This workshop will address the following key areas:

  • Build awareness for the industry by giving an overview of the issue, an interpretation of the data related to TiO2 safety, and the potential impact a ban out titanium dioxide would have on patients.
  • Possible classification of titanium dioxide as something other than a colorant.
  • Identify areas that need further research to support technical initiatives related to possible additional safety study requirements to support continued safe use of TiO2 or technologies related to the use of TiO2 alternatives where desired.
  • Present the technical challenges that pharmaceutical companies are likely facing when trying to formulate new and reformulate existing drug products with the currently available alternatives. Discuss alternatives for oral solids and oral suspensions.
  • Overview of what is happening globally because of the EU regulation.

Hybrid Event

The Workshop will be a hybrid event (in-person and virtual).  Virtual information will be sent out prior to the start of the Workshop.
