At this year’s forum each industry will have a unique and dedicated tracked program agenda, enabling attendees to delve into specific issues based on their individual industry sectors. Sessions that have been identified as critical to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries will span the entire manufacturing process from discussions on technology transfer and failure investigation through to clean room monitoring and operational excellence strategies.
Additionally, medical device and diagnostic manufacturers will have an industry specific program covering a wide range of challenges with sessions ranging from UDI system regulations and implementation strategies through to strict design controls development and transfer processes.
Each track will also look to address an array of quality assurance concerns as they relate to the individual industry; the topics to be discussed range from CAPA and validation implementation along with internal and supplier auditing techniques.
