EXCiPACT is a non-profit organisation that owns and manages oversight of a third-party Certification Scheme available to pharmaceutical excipient manufacturers and distributors worldwide. The EXCiPACT standards, to which suppliers are certified, were developed by the member organisations, of which PQG is one. As a member of EXCiPACT, PQG are also actively involved in the review and revision of these standards.
EXCiPACT are currently seeking input for the revision of the 2021 standards to ensure that they are current, relevant, and forward looking. Recently there have been several developments such as the revision of the IPEC-PQG GMP Guide, and the USP General Chapter <1078> Good Manufacturing Practices for Bulk Pharmaceutical Excipients. Additionally, regulatory scrutiny of the manufacture and supply of excipients continues to grow, and these expectations need to be considered to in any revisions.
If you are interested in being involved in the review and revision of these standards, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Please could we ask that you reply by Wednesday 13th September.
