The 2/7/2013 deadline has passed for the Falsified Medicines Directive and the need requirements for API manufacturers outside the EEA. Check out the MHRA web site for those countries ‘white listed’ and those requiring Letters of Confirmation. Focus is now moving toward manufacturers and suppliers of excipients.

The MHRA have also communicated the dates for their annual GMP & GDP conference on 2, 3 & 4th December 2013. This promises to be a key event for those working in the pharmaceutical industry. I hope that I will have the opportunity to meet with you at the event.

Finally in this update I can also confirm the dates for the Pharmig conference i.e. 20 & 21st November at the Oxford Belfry. Please check out the Pharmig website at or catch me on Linked In.
