AAPS/EUFEPS Global Bioequivalence Harmonization Initiative

AAPS/EUFEPS Global Bioequivalence Harmonization Initiative

December 12-13, 2019
DoubleTree Bethesda (Now The Bethesdan Hotel, Tapestry by Hilton)
Bethesda, MD, USA

AAPS in collaboration with the European Federation for Pharmaceutical Sciences (EUFEPS) are hosting the fourth international workshop with a goal to harmonize the requirements for bioequivalence assessment. This goal was encouraged from the beginning by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) as well as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To support the intended process of global harmonization scientifically, a series of International Conferences was started by EUFEPS in collaboration with the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS). All conferences were characterized by open discussions and constructive exchange between regulatory scientists, academia and industry and, thus, contributed significantly to the debate on a worldwide harmonization of bioequivalence requirements. Such global participation has formed an ideal platform for scientists from the pharmaceutical industry and academia to exchange their experience and views with the regulators. Scientific consensus achieved at the end of processes such as these, should constitute the most appropriate basis for harmonization.
