Rx-360 Outreach Events Minimize

Rx-360 at CPhI

From October 9-11, Rx-360 was in Feria de Madrid, Spain for CPhI Worldwide 2012. Several Rx-360 representatives manned the RX-360 booth at CPhI and shared information about the consortium with interested attendees from industry and regulatory agencies from around the world. Visitors had interest in what the organization is doing and Rx-360’s mission to protect patients.

Rx-360  organized a panel discussion and open Q&A Session during CPhI as well.  In this open session, Rx-360 member panelists represented Quality, Suppliers, Purchasing, Sourcing, and Security - Guy Villax, Hovione; Lynne Byers, GlaxoSmithKline; Martin VanTrieste, Amgen; Stefan Winghardt, Teva; Bill DuBay, AMPAC Fine Chemicals; Meg Rapplean, Abbott Laboratories; Brian Johnson, Pfizer; and Kim Cauchy, Mylan. Buyers and suppliers of APIs, excipients and packaging materials attending the sessions received information on  the benefits of Rx-360 membership and how Rx-360 audits can play a role  in a sound supplier qualification program.

Rx-360 representatives wrapped up the CPhI event by attending an annual dinner hosted by EFCG, the European industry association representing European API producers.  Towards the end of the EFCG dinner, Rx-360 board member, Guy Villax of Hovione, moderated a lively discussion to highlight Rx-360 and encourage non-members to get involved.
