In addition to local and global networking opportunities, ISPE offers access to technical documents, peer-reviewed publications, industry and regulatory resources, relevant continuing education and training, and the first competency-based international certification for pharmaceutical professionals.
Communities of Practice (CoPs)Edit
Through interactive online CoPs, industry professionals can access bodies of knowledge, share best practices, as well as contact and engage in networking opportunities with other like-minded colleagues.
CoPs allow participants to:
- Engage in electronic discussions on topics of interest with professionals around the world,
- Solve everyday problems,
- Collaborate on documents, resources, and content relevant to the discipline of the community.
Education and TrainingEdit
ISPE’s conferences allow peers to share problems and develop solutions through educational programming, networking activities, and interaction with regulatory leaders. ISPE also offers onsite and technology-based learning opportunities.
Produced by pharmaceutical science and manufacturing industry professionals, ISPE publications provide information to help companies build on best practices to meet regulatory standards.
Affiliates and ChaptersEdit
ISPE members can take advantage of ISPE resources on a local level through more than 40 ISPE Affiliates and Chapters that offer educational and networking opportunities. They can interact with colleagues and attend events.
Product Quality Lifecycle ImplementationEdit
ISPE’s Product Quality Lifecycle Implementation (PQLI) initiative resulted from the need to help the pharmaceutical industry find global solutions to implementation challenges for International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) guidances. Through PQLI (www.ISPE.org/PQLI), ISPE spearheads efforts to work with industry and regulatory leaders worldwide to develop implementation of ICH guidances.
Facility of the Year Awards ProgramEdit
The Facility of the Year Awards program recognizes pharmaceutical manufacturing projects that utilize innovative technologies to enhance the delivery of a quality project, as well as reduce the cost of producing medicines.
