Evolving Landscape on Control of Excipients Quality in Pharmaceutical Products
Agilent: Evolving Landscape on Control of Excipients Quality in Pharmaceutical Products
The quality and safety of pharmaceutical products are the top concerns of regulators. In recent years, regulatory agencies and pharmacopeia's have strengthened their position on preventing drug adulteration in both active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and excipients by enacting new regulations and developing new documentary and reference standards.
- In May’23, USFDA released ‘Guidance for Industry’ mentioning about quantitative testing of DEG and EG levels for representative samples of each shipment of each lot before use in product manufacturing by gas chromatography (GC) instrument.
- Ministry of Commerce & Industry (INDIA) also released notification for amendment in Chapter-30 of Schedule 2 (Export Policy) related to export of Cough Syrups.
- WHO is also focusing on targeted quality testing of medicinal syrups imported to Rest of the World & Developing nations to confirm quality & compliance of syrups with respect to DEG & EG levels.
Join this webinar to hear IPC, USP and Agilent experts share their views on:
- Role of Pharmacopeia's in ensuring Quality of Pharmaceutical products and excipients
- Importance of Excipient Quality to Medicine Quality
- Understanding of high-risk excipients
- Advanced workflows to comply with latest regulatory and Pharmacopeial updates
Presenter: Dr. Tong (Jenny) Liu (Principal Scientist in Global Science and Standards - Excipients, United States Pharmacopeia)
Dr. Tong (Jenny) Liu is a Principal Scientist in Global Science and Standards — Excipients at the United States Pharmacopeial (USP). She is currently responsible for the development, update, and harmonization of excipient monographs and excipients-related general chapters under the work plan of the Pharmacopeial Discussion Group (PDG). PDG strives for the harmonization of compendial standards among European Pharmacopeia, Indian Pharmacopeia, Japanese Pharmacopeia, and the United States Pharmacopeia.
