ARLINGTON, VA— The IPEC Federation has published a position paper on supply chain security for pharmaceutical grade excipients to provide support to excipient manufacturers, distributors, pharmaceutical traders, brokers, carriers, and other service providers along the supply chain. The paper summarizes existing regulations and tools that support good practices for supply chain security and drug safety, including IPEC’s Good Distribution Practices Guide for Pharmaceutical Excipients and its Risk Assessment Guide. While the federation emphasizes that supply chain responsibility ultimately remains with the finished dosage form manufacturer, each participant in the supply chain, both up and downstream, has responsibilities for its own specific area of activity.
