Guidelines for Artwork Origination

Origination guidance has long been a hot topic over the years and whilst PS 9000:2011 has established the requirements it has been recognised that a separate document will provide a higher level of knowledge and understanding to the Pharmaceutical industry, as well as targeting to establish the foundations of best practice in this area.

With this in mind the PQG is supporting a project to establish guidelines in this subject matter and would welcome contribution from interested organisations and individuals who would like to be involved in the future publication.
