Quality: A Strategic Element in the Success of a Company

The convention opened with a short introduction by Sergio Dompé, President of the convention organiser and the Chairman, Prof Andrea Gazzaniga, Professor of Pharmacy at the University of Milano, who warmly welcomed the upcoming lectures by key experts from across the world in pharmaceutical quality issues. Dr Henning G Kristensen, who at present serves as the Chair of the European Commission and is a member of the Steering committee for the Certificates of Suitability of Drug Substances, spoke first, on The European Pharmacopoeia and its role in the regulatory process, highlighting the difficulties found in the integration of the Pharmacopoeias in the differing European countries.

The message was that European countries need to speak a common technical language and establish an international harmonisation of subjects. Certain uniformity in the terminology related to pharmaceutical products' qualitative characteristics and in the impurities controls, both for the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and excipients and for the container materials, should be reached in the next few years.
