ISPE Technical Conferences


12 – 15 September | Conference | Maryland, US

The International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) will host its 2017 Process Validation and Process Validation Statistics Conferences in Bethesda, Maryland.

These concurrent events offer comprehensive solutions to process validation lifecycle challenges faced by process validation professionals and statisticians today.

John Bournas, CEO and President at ISPE, said: “These conferences are invaluable due to the breadth of process validation lifecycle challenges addressed and the opportunity to interact with experienced and leading practitioners and regulatory experts.”

Designed to expand attendee knowledge of the many facets of process validation, these back to back events cover the entire Process Validation Lifecycle — from Stage 1 Process Design through to Stage 3 Continued Process Verification (CPV).

Benchmarking opportunities are numerous through shared real world experiences of successes and challenges from presenters and fellow professionals.
