2018 PIC/S Annual Seminar

Registration is Open

Dear Colleagues,

The United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) is proud to announce that registration is now open for the PIC/S Committee Meeting and Seminar, hosted by US FDA from September 24 -28, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois.

The Seminar, entitled "Management of Risk through the Product Life-Cycle," will consist of interactive discussions, presentations, and workshops.

Risk management is critical to ensuring product quality, safety, and efficacy. The Seminar will explore the best practices impacting risk assessments and share tools and techniques generated from experienced inspectors and assessors to enhance inspections. It will be an ideal opportunity for both novice and experienced inspectors to refine their inspection skills through knowledge sharing and discussion.

The total duration of the Committee Meeting and Seminar is 5 days and is scheduled as follows:
  • 0.5 day for PIC/S Executive Bureau (EB) Meeting (Monday morning, for EB members-only)
  • 1.5 days for PIC/S Committee Meeting (Monday afternoon and Tuesday full day)
  • 2.5 days for the Seminar (Wednesday full day, Thursday full day, and Friday morning)
The Seminar is open to the participation of inspectors from Medicines Regulatory Authorities from around the world. 

Registration will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. The number of participants is subject to capacity and is in compliance with PIC/S rules on fair and equal representation, therefore please be sure to register as soon as possible. The deadline for registrations is September 14, 2018, with the early bird rate expiring on July 31, 2018.

The PIC/S Committee Meeting and Seminar will be held at the Palmer House Hotel, located in downtown Chicago. Should you wish to book accommodation at the venue, a limited number of rooms have been reserved. The discounted group rate, which includes breakfast, is $249.00 per night (exclusive of taxes and fees) and is valid until August 24, 2018, or when the room block is full (whichever comes first).
