European Aseptic Conference


Reasons to attend this conference:

  • You will be informed on new regulatory and technological developments in sterile / aseptic manufacture
  • You learn how current GMP and production requirements have to be implemented technologically in sterile manufacture
  • You will get case studies from pharmaceutical companies


GMP regulations only define general requirements for equipment – it has to be suitable for the intended work process, easy to clean and without any negative influence on the product quality. Questions like how these general requirements have to be fulfilled concretely in sterile manufacture, which points call for special attention and which new technologies will be used in the future are in this conference’s focus. Speakers from the pharmaceutical industry and from planning and engineering companies deal with pivotal developments in the field of sterile manufacture.

Target Audience

The event is directed at specialists from the pharmaceutical industry as well as at engineers and planners who have to deal with current aseptic technologies in clean areas in their daily practice. It particularly addresses the departments:

  • Production
  • Quality assurance
  • Engineering / Technology


Dr. Friedrich Haefele
