IPEC Europe and APV are delighted to invite you to the IPEC Europe Excipient Conference 2019, our 8th annual conference on pharmaceutical excipients.
The conference will focus on regulatory guidelines relating to pharmaceutical excipients and technology.
As part of the programme we will offer “practical sessions” to provide detailed information about current IPEC Guidelines supporting industry to comply with regulatory requirements and other expectations .Three of these “practical sessions” will be held for 2 times in parallel to allow participants to attend 2 of the 3 sessions. These sessions will focus on the content of the IPEC Guidelines and provide practical examples to facilitate implementation in a company’s quality system. Participants will learn how to use the guides in daily work and can discuss with the speakers about their personal experience.
We will open the technical and scientific session of the conference with two compendial topics presented by EDQM and USP.
The remaining of the session will focus on the application of the excipients and the new findings in key areas such as pediatrics, solid dispersions as well as taste masking.
We will also have an opportunity to hear an overview on the evolving landscape of the pharmaceutical industry.
Last but not least, networking and exchange of information is a key feature of the event and table-top exhibitions aligned to the conference will encourage communication between suppliers and users.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Vienna.
