Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

An often overlooked aspect of pharmaceutical development and supply chain maintenance is the interplay between pharmaceutical dosage forms and their respective packaging. Along with control on the ingredients, both active and excipients, proper control of packaging is crucial to both developing an effective product and maintaining proper purity, efficacy and safety over the intended shelf-life. With the 2006 publication of the Product Quality Research Institute’s Safety Thresholds and Best Practices for Leachable and Extractables in Orally Inhaled and Nasal Drug Products (OINDP)[1], the design and safety expectations for packaging compatibility studies was put on a sound scientific basis. Worldwide regulatory authorities now expect that similar scientific justifications be constructed for all dosage forms. This expectation has expanded in recent years to include any surface, even during processing, to be investigated and justified.

This webinar will begin with a discussion of the history behind the legal basis of pharmaceutical regulations in the US and EU. Recent regulatory trends with regards to packaging will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completing this course, participants should understand:

  • The historical basis and legal process of US regulations
  • Key on-line resources for regulatory expectations for pharmaceutical packaging
  • How to build effective testing strategies by marketing region
  • How to build effective testing strategies by submission type
  • The difference between acceptable and unacceptable changes due to packaging
  • How to evaluate extractables separately from leachables
  • How to construct threshold justifications by dosage form or surface

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • History behind the legal basis of pharmaceutical regulations in the US and EU
  • Categorization of packaging risk by marketing region
  • Identification of pertinent regulatory documents
