Confirmed keynote speakers include the following health authority representatives and industry leaders.

I am very honored to be one of the keynote speakers at the 2024 ISPE Aseptic Conference in Vienna. As a representative of the Austrian Competent Authority, I will be reporting on the status of the implementation of Annex 1. There will be specific examples of best practices, but also of areas where the industry needs to improve. I will also be part of the regulatory panel together with my colleagues from RP Tübingen, US FDA, and TGA.

As a German regulator, I will be talking about our experiences in inspections since Annex 1 came into effect in August 2023. Hear about areas where we have seen good strategies of implementation, common hurdles for implementation, and where the industry has to improve. I am also looking forward to the regulatory panel, where I will be discussing with my colleagues from AGES, FDA, Swissmedic, and TGA.

ISPE provides a great platform for exchanging knowledge and best practices with other companies on current and important industry topics. I am looking forward to the 2024 ISPE Aseptic Conference in March and the valuable discussions on aseptic processing and implications of Annex 1 changes to the industry, as well as welcoming visitors to our Takeda production site in Vienna to share insights into our technologies and processes.

As Secretary General of PHARMIG, the Association of the Austrian Pharmaceutical Industry, I will be speaking at the 2024 ISPE Aseptic Conference in Vienna, 12-13 March. My talk will focus on the contribution of the pharmaceutical industry in Austria to world health. Our member companies provide quality medicines to patients and play a vital role in the Austrian economy. Will I see you at the conference?
