SAE Media Group’s 2nd Annual Conference
Next Generation Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms
October 5th-6th, 2022 | London, UK
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
SAE Media Group is proud to present the 2nd Next Generation Pharmaceutical Cleanrooms Conference on October 2022.

Cleanroom technology is an essential requirement for every pharmaceutical company. From research to manufacturing, sterile environments are everywhere, and it is no surprise that the global market for cleanroom technologies is expected to pass USD 7.3 billion by 2025 from USD 5.1 billion in 2020.

Regulatory changes, technological advancements and advanced therapeutics are all contributing to this growth. The 2022 agenda will highlight the key drivers and overarching challenges of the industry, making this one of the most exciting and important spaces to join for pharmaceutical CMC and manufacturing.

This year’s conference will focus on 4 key themes: Annex 1 and the upcoming GMP changes, improving cleanroom accessibility and efficiency and adaptable cleanroom design and validation. The agenda will highlight insightful case studies across these themes, uncovering key developments and the future of pharmaceutical cleanrooms.

 

This two-day agenda offers you peer-to-peer networking with industry experts and representatives from leading pharmaceutical companies and is the perfect opportunity to maximise your pharmaceutical cleanroom’s full potential.

We look forward to welcoming you to the conference in October.
 

Join us in addressing the challenges in the next generation of cleanroom technology and engineering by bridging the gap and sparking conversations:

  • Learn how to maximise the latest cleanroom technologies to modernise your contamination control strategy
  • Maximise the cost-effectiveness of your cleanroom and navigate best practises for cleanroom design
  • Optimise your preparation for upcoming regulatory changes, including the impending Annex 1
  • Increase your cleanroom availability & accessibility through streamlined approaches to contamination control

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
