ISPE is a not-for-profit independent organization led by the world's top pharmaceutical professionals. The Society provides an inviting and neutral environment for industry experts, regulators, technologists, consultants and academia to exchange ideas and practical experience. As a vibrant community, ISPE's Members work together to identify the best possible methods of producing safe, effective, high quality drug products, while helping each other make better educated decisions more quickly than ever before. ISPE is a Society comprised of individual Members, not companies, and all disciplines are essential to achieving the Society’s goals with all voices equal.
Because ISPE does not engage in any lobbying activities and makes no attempt to influence regulations, the Society can play a vital role in assembling experts from its multiple disciplines to design, debate and publicize more effective processes and standards for the ultimate benefit of the patient. ISPE’s neutral environment ensures all such activities are based on the application of sound scientific and technological principles through the expert contributions of our individual Members irrespective of their employer, status or affiliation and experts belonging to Regulatory Authorities.
An important step toward getting involved is to join ISPE.
Options for Joining:. In order to make ISPE membership as accessible as possible, the ISPE International Board of Directors has approved a policy that applies to ALL individuals employed full-time by a Regulatory Authority or government agency. ISPE offers complimentary membership to all regulators worldwide. However, the ISPE Board recognizes that policies may vary within Regulatory Authorities and has also authorized a membership rate of $65, equal to that for Emerging Economy and Academic memberships, for Regulatory Authority representations not able to accept the no cost option.
Regardless of the manner in which a Regulatory Authority/Government member joins ISPE, membership enables regulators to access ISPE’s extensive resources and activities, thus helping to complement their technical and knowledge skills. For example:
Regulators can take advantage of local ISPE resources through dozens of ISPE Affiliates and Chapters around the world. These groups offer programs in the local language and provide opportunities that will keep you abreast of the latest happenings in the industry on a regional level.
At the local and International levels, ISPE carries out its mission through a variety of projects aimed at leading global change and innovation in pharmaceutical technology and processes. To do this effectively, ISPE depends upon volunteers working in all parts of the industry engaging in open, nonbinding, neutral dialogue and working together on projects that ultimately improve results for patients.
