Challenges

Drug product and secondary packaging processes require excellent operations and quality management systems to adapt to a growing market. Couple this with new territories for existing drugs, lean supply chains, and innovative product types, and you have greater pressures and demands for fill finish operations.

As new technologies emerge, organizations need to invest so they can deliver on these opportunities. In a competitive market, it is essential that fill finish does not slow down the supply to both clinical trials and patients.

Inevitably, this puts pressure on costs and expenses. It creates a need for our members to reduce time and expense while finding a way to adapt to the market’s changing needs.

Additionally, the industry’s relentless drive for quality is matched by the expectations from health authorities that continue to expect higher standards and quality. The industry must also contribute to environmental sustainability and reduce material waste generated by its operations and products.

Our members are rising to the challenge within our community supported by open collaborations.

Benefits of membership collaboration

It is complex and time-consuming to minimize the risk of harm to patients, batch loss, and inspection issues.

Even the most experienced companies face challenges in designing processes and using equipment which will meet ever more stringent regulatory requirements. This is why quality and demonstrating Good Manufacturing Practice compliance will remain the priority of Fill Finish.

This workstream has created an excellent foundation for what are the benefits and challenges of rapid technology. My company has now started to review the potential for implementing rapid sterility testing to support quick release turnaround which will reduce release time by up to 10 days. This workstream has given us the tools to present the options and open the dialogue with regulatory affairs.
