Paul O’Connor, Vice- President of Quality and Qualified Person (QP) delivered the keynote address during a David-Begg Associates gathering on 12th July 2007. Over 70 industry QPs were present at the event, entitled

“Strategic Issues for the Pharmaceutical Professional”,

which took place on 12th July in York, United Kingdom.

During the invitation only seminar, Paul discussed the challenges faced by QPs in today’s industry. The presentation also reviewed the Clinical Trial Directive EU 2001/20/EC and examined the roles and responsibilities of the Qualified Person post-directive.

“There are many stakeholders within our marketplace and it is of immense benefit to share expertise and experiences, particularly regarding the legislative framework which affects us.”

“Within Almac, we continually share our knowledge with our client base, but importantly also with the wider clinical and pharmaceutical audience with whom we play a critical role in the drug development process,”
