  • Introduction

    Pharmaceutical Consultancy Services (PCS), the Center for Executive Education IBA/CEE and Operational Excellence Consulting (OEC) organize the one-day seminar: Exporting Medicine from Pakistan to PIC/s Countries and WHO Qualifications, cGMP Regulatory Requirements.

    As the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) is moving to get PIC/s pre-accession, it should be easier for Pakistani companies to export their products to the world's largest markets. This seminar will benefit companies seeking to export to the United States, Europe or the countries covered by PIC/s. Before a Pakistani company is allowed to, export to any of the markets above it will be subject to regulatory inspection against the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) guidelines.

    Every organization has their own view on these practices and has a distinct inspection approach. Understanding the practical implications of these differences can be extremely difficult.

    During the seminar industry, experts will elaborate on the requirements and expectations of PIC/s & WHO inspectorates. Practical examples will be provided as well as theoretical guidance to help your company take the first steps toward international regulatory compliance.
