This complimentary workshop will discuss key aspects regarding launching a product into Europe with a focus on niche and orphan drugs and will include:

  • European regulatory framework
  • The importance of the role of the Qualified Person (QP)
  • Key considerations for packaging, selection and design
  • Strategies for stock optimisation
  • Managing a complex EU supply chain
  • Considerations for a temperature sensitive product

A number of Almac’s subject matter experts, including VP Commercial Operations, David Downey, will join key thought leaders from PTC Therapeutics, Shire Pharmaceuticals and Quickstat to share real world experiences and provide unique advice gained in their respective fields of expertise.
