Aseptic Manufacturing, 31. May – 1. June 2023, Copenhagen, Denmark

Aseptic Manufacturing – Maintaining the validated state


This two-day intensive summit brings together the industry leaders in compliance, aseptic manufacturing and maintaining the validated state. The conference will go beyond presentations on best practice and consists of both presentations and workshops on different aspects of aseptic manufacturing. Attendees will therefore gain a deeper understanding of the new messages from the revised Annex 1, EMA focuses on inspecting sterile facilities, sterilisation, process validation, life cycle approach and more.

The conference will showcase some of the technology that impacts aseptic manufacturing, and participants will obtain practical knowledge and understanding of regulatory requirements and techniques that can be used in their own aseptic manufacturing process strategy. The presenters will focus on the newest information available and will cover a wide range of subjects relevant to aseptic manufacturing and maintaining the validated state.

In addition to the various presentations and workshops, the summit will also provide many opportunities for networking. The summit will be a hybrid event, and this enables attendees to either view online or be physically present at the event.
