FDA Pharmaceutical Quality Symposium 2023 Banner

Pharmaceutical Quality Symposium:
Quality, Supply Chain & Advanced Manufacturing
October 31 – November 1, 2023

Pharmaceutical quality assures the availability, safety, and efficacy of every dose of medicine. Everyone deserves confidence in their next dose of medicine. Problems with pharmaceutical quality can impact the availability of medicine to patients and consumers. The mission of CDER’s Office of Pharmaceutical Quality (OPQ) is to assure quality medicines are available to the American public. This symposium, held every two years, will explore topics related to pharmaceutical quality regulation, supply chains, and advanced manufacturing technologies. Attendees will become familiar with the regulatory quality assessment, inspection, policy, surveillance, and research activities that impact the pharmaceutical supply chain and assure drug quality.
