This conference offers you the unique possibility to become acquainted with the new regulatory requirements of the Annex 1, the impact on aseptic manufacturing and the
challenges relating to quality aspects.

Authority speakers from different European Member States as well as representatives from pharmaceutical industry will provide you with information on their thinking about the new requirements. They will discuss the statements in the new Annex 1 with regard to topics like Quality Risk Management, Process Simulation/Media Fill and Container Closure Integrity Testing as well as the current expectations on premises, cleanroom qualification and the appropriate monitoring.

Additionally, the speakers will compare the requirements of the new Annex 1 with the expectations of other guidance documents like ISO 14644 or the relevant US guidelines.
Every topic will be covered by an authority and an industry representative to compare the regulatory with the manufacturers understanding.


The Annex 1 “Manufacture of Sterile Medicinal Products” was published for the first time in 1971. During the following years it was updated several times, for example, to align the classification table of clean rooms, to include guidance on media simulations and bioburden monitoring in 2005 and 2007 or relating to capping of vials in 2010.
But for the first time, the currently published document represents a complete revision with the focus on providing a more structured guidance, including state of the art principles like Quality Risk Management and by paying attention to new technologies and innovative processes. It now includes new sections, as, for example, for utilities and enlarged topics like production and specific technologies or an increased guidance on the requirements of Aseptic Process Simulation (APS).


This conference is of interest to professionals from pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers, authorities and suppliers with responsibilities in
  • Aseptic Manufacturing
  • Quality Assurance
  • Quality Control
  • Auditing
  • Inspections
who are involved in
  • Contamination Control
  • Monitoring
  • Qualification and Validation
  • Self Inspection
  • Quality Affairs
  • Process Simulation/Media Fill
