Regulatory requirements governing biopharmaceuticals


The primary difference between biopharmaceuticals and traditional pharmaceuticals is the method by which the drugs are produced: Biopharmaceuticals are manufactured in living organisms such as bacteria, yeast and mammalian cells, whereas traditional pharmaceuticals are manufactured through a series of chemical synthesis.

Biopharmaceutical products make up an increasing share of new approvals from the US Food and Drug Administration. Today, biopharmaceuticals generate global revenues of $163 billion, making up about 20 percent of the pharma market. It’s by far the fastest-growing part of the industry.

Quality functions are struggling to keep up with the rising demands of regulators, primarily the US Food and Drug Administration. The industry has received an unprecedented number of warning letters and remediation programs in the last five years, and scrutiny is unlikely to decrease. Furthermore, the increasing relevance of global markets (beyond the United States, European Union, and Japan) is adding the complexity of multiple quality standards and regulatory regimes.

Why should you attend

Biopharmaceutical companies best positioned to succeed in tomorrow’s market will be those that master a broad set of technical and operational capabilities; as well as, ensure adherence to cGMP compliance requirements.
