ISPE, a global, not-for-profit association of more than 22,000 professionals, announced that it will feature eight educational sessions, including a seminar designed to help pharmaceutical companies identify and address compliance risks prior to FDA inspection, as part of its 2011 Tampa Conference, which will take place 21-24 February 2011 at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay in Tampa, Florida USA.

The FDA inspection enforcement trends seminar, titled, “Pharmaceutical Inspections and Compliance: Current FDA Enforcement Trends,” is a two-day event that will address dual FDA /Industry presentations on the topics of enforcement, supply chain and vendors/CMOs, GMP quality systems, Part 11, management responsibility, current inspections, continuous manufacturing, and process validation. The session will be led by FDA Compliance Officer Francis Godwin and Timothy Tyson, Chairman and CEO of Aptuit, Inc., USA, and will feature Sion Wyn, Director of Conformity, Ltd., UK and FDA Consumer Safety Officers Brian Belz and Grace McNally as speakers.

Other educational sessions will include:

  • Quality Risk Management: Focused, Practical Application – Participants in this session will learn to build and implement a QRM strategy, apply tools and techniques to educate various teams and management levels to the QRM approach, explain how to document QRM to ensure its effectiveness, and adapt QRM applications that have worked for others.
  • Syringe Processing Workshop – The second annual syringe workshop will present new case studies, technology, and innovative ideas in clinical operations, high volume pharmaceuticals and biologicals for existing or new operations. Topics will cover all aspects of prefilled syringes from process and product development, packaging component issues, quality assurance considerations, and inspection hot topics.
  • Containment: A Risk-Based Approach – This session will feature a discussion evaluating containment systems and approaches specifically for potent and highly hazardous compounds. As part of this seminar, the FDA will be invited to speak on how science and risk-based approaches to containment are viewed.
  • Energy Saving Projects – Case Studies and Tools for Saving Energy – This seminar will present four case studies of energy improvement projects that have decreased the amount of utilities consumed resulting in lower production cost and increased energy intensity. Topics addressed will include water, steam, HVAC, electricity, process efficiency, funding, and rebates.

In addition to the educational content being presented, the 2011 Tampa Conference will feature three training courses:

  • Cleaning Validation Principles – This course will cover elements of a cleaning validation program from start to finish, exploring such concepts as the determination of residues to be targeted, selection of analytical and sampling methods, determination of appropriate limits in various pharmaceutical and biotechnology processes, and establishment of scientific rationales acceptable to regulatory inspectors.
  • Containment Fundamentals – This course will focus on airborne contaminants and begin by discussing the definition, history, and rationale for the containment of compounds and processes.
  • Process Validation in Biotechnology Manufacturing – This course is designed to provide a clear understanding of the regulatory, scientific, and engineering tools required to successfully develop and validate bioprocesses. This course also includes a pre-recorded online webinar that will allow participants to review fundamentals of the subject matter prior to the course.

Complete seminar agendas and training course outlines for the 2010 Tampa Conference are available on the ISPE Web site.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
