AAHP Summit on Challenges and Solutions in Quality & Safety of Homeopathic Drug Products: Keeping Your Business Compliant under FDA’s New Proposed Guidance

June 27 - June 28


About the Summit

Now more than ever, it is vital to your business to be up to date on compliance issues in every area. To assist the manufacturers and labelers of homeopathic products, the American Association of Homeopathic Pharmacists (AAHP) is offering regulators, quality experts, suppliers and those with allied interests a highly specialized one-day training. The small setting promises interaction with experts and peers to address your business concerns for a fraction of the cost of multiple consultants.

FDA is expected to adopt its guidance of risk-based enforcement. Do your products fall into the regulatory priority categories the agency identified: products with reported safety concerns; ingredients associated with safety concerns; non-oral and non-topical administration; marketed for infants, children, the elderly, etc.; or product not adhering to standards such as the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States.

Don’t miss this powerful one-day investment — especially if your company will be present in the exhibit hall for the Joint American Homeopathic Conference.

Who Should Attend

Recommended attendees are staff with homeopathic manufacturers or businesses and consultants for this pharmaceutical industry related to manufacturing and labeling compliance. Company leaders, such as the President and CEO, are also welcome.
