Pharmaceutical Science Group NSW - cGMP Hybrid Seminar

Code of GMP – Update to PIC/S vers PE0016 – Annexes 13 and 16
Wednesday 3 April 2024
Pharmacy Lecture Theatre, Pharmacy School, University of Sydney or by remote attendance


In line with international harmonisation of regulatory compliance initiatives, and also being a PIC/S member, Australia has adopted the PIC/S Code of GMP (PIC/S document PE 009) as the ‘manufacturing principle’ specified in the Therapeutic Goods Act. PIC/S routinely conducts rolling reviews of each chapter in PE 009 in the Codes and Annexes. This requires its member countries to update the adopted versions on a regular basis. PE 009 version 15 is the current version adopted by TGA, which requires to be updated to version 16. The changes from Vers 15 to Vers 16 are implementation of Vers 16 Annexes 13 (Manufacture of investigational medicinal products) and 16 (Authorised Person and Batch Release).  

The proposed Annexes 13 and 16 are found within the PIC/S Vers 16 of the cGMP Annexes. Please click here to access the Annexes.

TGA is currently consulting with peak industry bodies in Australia to prepare for the adoption of these Annexes, expected to be implemented in June 2024.

The current TGA version of the Code is also used by exporters of veterinary medicines in Australia.  

This hybrid seminar/webinar will hear presentations from TGA, APVMA and industry based speakers.  These presentations include descriptions of forthcoming changes and requirements with particular reference to Release for Supply and the Authorised Person, supply for clinical trials and impact on veterinary medicine manufacturers who export and therefore who are inspected by TGA inspectors. 

This event is of importance to all involved in the manufacture, testing, Release for Supply and importation of medicines for both commercial supply and supply to clinical trials.  This includes personnel involved in the manufacture and Release for Supply of clinical trial active materials and dose form and researchers requiring a working knowledge of taking their experimental drugs to clinical trials.

This is to be a hybrid event, a mixture of live and remote presenters and attendees.
