Improving Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Storage Conditions During Transport

DUBAI, UAE and JOHANNESBURG, February 17, 2011 - The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has published a concept paper on
storage conditions during transport (EMA/INS/GMP/638479/2010). The goal is to
create new Good Distribution Practice (GDP) and GMP guidance and may lead to
the need to revise the guideline on declaration of storage conditions

Over the past few years, significant changes continued to occur in the
globalisation of manufacture with a consequent increase in the complexity and
vulnerability in the supply chain, leading to a lack of clear guidance on the
regulatory expectations for ensuring that medicinal products and APIs are not
damaged or compromised during transportation.

Without key consideration for these guidelines, risk of freezing during
transport increases and the effects on the products can lead to quality
compromise and ultimately loss of profits.

IQPC's Cold Chain South Africa 2011 will provide practical knowledge on
key operations within cold chain logistics and supply chain. Held in
Johannesburg South Africa, from the 28 - 31 March 2011, the event will bring
together original and generic Pharmaceutical manufacturers, Biotechnology
firms as well as Government and Regulators to share best-practise in cold
chain management.

This is your opportunity to exchange best-practices and practical
solutions that can be implemented to improve service delivery and future

Attendees will benefit from four days of industry-leading presentations
and exclusive workshops. Industry experts who will be sharing their knowledge
include: Adcock Ingram, Cipla / Enaleni Pharma, Collaborative Center for Cold
Chain Management, DairyBelle, Exelsius - Cold Chain Management Consultancy,
Fisher Clinical Services, Naratech Pharma Consultancy, Pharmaceutical
Industry Association of South Africa, Pharmaceutical Cold Chain Interest
Group, Parenteral Drug Association, RTT Group, SA Refrigerated Distribution
Association, sanofi Pasteur, Strategnos, South African National Blood
Services, SSI Schaefer Systems International DWC LLC, University of KwaZulu
