Atypical actives

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

By definition, an Atypical Active is an “excipient, food additive or personal care ingredient” that is being used as an “active ingredient” in a formulation. In some cases it is the only ingredient. Emerging regulatory initiatives are changing the way these materials have historically been handled, e.g. FDASIA and EU's Falsified Medicines Directive.

Presentation Objectives

Key Topics:

  • New regulatory implications
  • What are appropriate GMPs to use for Atypical Actives
  • If Regulators apply ICH Q7 API GMPs to manufacture of “Atypical Actives” what could happen?
  • Potential Strategy for Next Steps
  • Proposed Solutions
