PharmaExcipients China 2019 to Embark on a New Journey
SHANGHAI, Jan. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — To further give play to the role of CPhI China as an international exchange platform and serve the generic drug quality and efficacy consistency evaluation by using international, advanced ideas and technologies, PharmaExcipients China 2019, hosted by CCCMHPIE and UBM EMEA and co-organized by Shanghai UBM Sinoexpo, will embark on a new journey in Hall E3 of Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) on June 18-20, 2019 as one of the characteristic segments of CPhI China. The exhibition will set up an international exchange and cooperation platform to link China’s pharmaceutical excipients and preparation R&D; connect the pharmaceutical product R&D chain and industrial chain; propel enterprises and R&D institutions to strengthen R&D of APIs, excipients, and pharmaceutical packaging materials; promote lifecycle management, technological upgrading, and innovation of pharmaceutical products; and help enterprises continue to improve pharmaceutical excipient quality.
Laws and regulations of many countries have placed higher requirements on pharmaceutical companies and pharmaceutical excipient suppliers in recent years, to ensure the quality and safety of pharmaceutical excipients. The relevant policies for the generic drug quality and efficacy consistency evaluation, information registration of APIs, excipients, and pharmaceutical packaging materials, and related review and approval, etc. introduced in China in recent years have made clear the primary responsibility of the preparation enterprises for the selection of pharmaceutical excipients, which means that excipient enterprises shall be fully subject to the review of preparation enterprises so as to obtain recognition thereof and achieve development and innovation. Driven by the policies, the promotion and application of the new products, new dosage forms, and new processes will bring broad markets for new pharmaceutical excipients.
Implementation of China’s new policy for related review will be a life-or-death test for preparation, pharmaceutical excipient, and pharmaceutical packaging material enterprises, and largely increase requirements for responsibilities and technology of enterprises. Some Chinese enterprises engaging in pharmaceutical excipients and pharmaceutical packaging materials are actively adjusting and reforming to improve product quality and ensure pharmaceutical product quality and safety. Additionally, more preparation enterprises have generated urgent needs for quality excipient manufacturers.
