Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to invite you to the 43rd International Good Manufacturing Practices Conference.

The conference will take place from March 11-14, 2019 in Athens, Georgia on the campus of the University of Georgia. This conference was established in conjunction with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to create an annual ongoing dialogue between regulatory agencies and the pharmaceutical industry on important issues in drug compliance and quality. The conference is widely recognized as the top international GMP meeting in the world and offers attendees the unique opportunity to meet with U.S. FDA, other global regulators and industry experts.

The conference agenda is filled with high level FDA and global regulatory agency and industry leaders. This year, the conference will focus on Global GMP Challenges. The conference will include sessions on Quality Metrics, Cybersecurity, Drug and Biologics Compliance Trends, Quality Risk Management Systems, Data Integrity, Stability Programs and the impact of Brexit on the industry. The post-conference tutorial will cover the hot topic of Trend Analysis and CAPA Verification. I encourage you to come to Athens and discover why this meeting is consistently rated outstanding by attendees.

Michael G. Bartlett, Ph.D.
Program Chair, 2019 International GMP Conference
