The event organized by the partnership between Tecniche Nuove and Pharmintech on pharmaceutical production will take place on Wednesday 10 April in Bologna.

It will be the place where to discuss the new challenges and opportunities in this area with a major current focus on the SPC manufacturing waiver.

SPC manufacturing waiver

It has been discussed for long time. This is the SPC manufacturing waiver, for quicker access to medicines for patients. The event will be an opportunity to take stock of the steps that Europe has taken in recent months and to discuss, in real time about the direction to take and of future steps.

The last update available concerns the current compromise which the Trilogue would seem to have arrived at the end of February. The decisions, however, are still in progress, and the compromise amendments on which the Trilogue was agreed should be able to be adopted by the end of the current term of the European Parliament.
