Why We Are Specialist

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) UK is honoured to be the host of the 2016 PIC/S Seminar. This is an annual international event attended by both member and non-member authorities of the Pharmaceutical Inspection Co-operation Scheme (PIC Scheme). The theme of the PIC/S 2016 Annual Seminar is "Inspectorates of the Future".

There are many factors affecting the work that Inspectorates do and what factors will drive them to do things differently in the future. This seminar will explore the current landscape with regard to inspection findings and trendings, with a particular focus on data integrity issues and then look to see what changes Industry have on the horizon. It will then also explore how various Inspectorates are collaborating on a number of topics and look to establish best practice for risk based inspections and compliance management. Finally, the seminar will look to what in the future PIC/S will be doing to support Inspector education through the PIA and also the PIC/S vision to 2020.

The seminar, taking place from 6th to 8th July will be held at the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), Manchester.

The Executive Bureau and Committee Meeting will also be held at MOSI on Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th July.
