With its move to the RheinMain CongressCenter in Wiesbaden, the PharmaCongress has become a completely new event, reaching its next level. While the heart of the congress are still the conference tracks - every year addressing latest issues and challenges and bringing together representatives from authorities and industry to discuss them in depth - the focus is even more on the users' experience by #sharing challenges and solutions in practice. The spotlight is thus on case studies from pharmaceutical companies, allowing you as a delegate to directy benefit from the speakers' everyday practice and from the direct personal exchange.

The GMP PharmaCongress 2024 will comprise the following conference tracks:

The Conference Tracks 2024

Non-Sterile Products – Challenges in Manufacturing & Quality

This year, the first part of the conference track will deal with topics such as automation, statistical process control or self-inspection, and the second part will deal with cleaning validation and microbiological issues. Current and modern approaches for identifying sampling points in the non-sterile area (grid-line approach) will be presented, and topics such as risk mitigation versus microbial testing will also be discussed.

GMP – Green or Good Manufacturing Practice?

This conference track will take a closer look at and discuss the possibilities of sustainability, environmental thinking and energy saving also under GMP conditions. The extent to which regulatory requirements, quality demands and modern sustainability requirements fit together will also be a topic of discussion. Case studies will be used to present practical implementations and highlight improvement measures.

Packaging/Packaging Materials – Challenges & Solutions

In this conference you will learn which requirements apply for packaging material and pre-sterilized material (e.g., ready-to-use, ready-to-sterilize). You will get to know relevant GMP aspects for packaging materials (e.g., vials, stoppers) that influence the quality of the final product. In addition, practice-oriented presentations and case studies will guide you through the relevant requirements on qualification / validation, and controls for packaging materials, including text control.
