Please join us for the 41st Annual International GMP Conference co-sponsored by the FDA and the UGA College of Pharmacy. Our speakers include many current and former high ranking FDA officials as well as many internationally renowned regulatory agency and industry speakers.

These distinguished speakers will provide updates on the activities of many FDA Offices and discuss new policies like the new Pharmaceutical Quality Program and the Quality Metrics Guidance. They will also cover such important topics as data integrity, product life cycle management, external regulatory intelligence, continuous manufacturing, effective investigation techniques, and the top findings from 2016 domestic and international inspections.  International topics will cover updates to the EU Guidance documents and changes to import policies in several countries.

The post-conference tutorial will be a workshop on Effective Root Cause Analysis, and is available for an additional fee.
