PIER in collaboration with EIPG are organising a webinar on the topic of 'FMD Implementation- Insights from a National Medicines Verification Organisation'.

The deadline for the implementation of the Delegated Regulation on Safety Features is fast approaching and industrial pharmacists throughout the entire pharmaceutical regulatory and supply chain will be interacting closely with their NMVO in the coming months. This webinar will provide insights into how an NMVO operates and an understanding of the importance of collaboration between all players and their national MVO, as part of the European network, in order to ensure the success of this project. The presenter is PIER member Leonie Clarke, Project Manager IMVO. It will be held on Tuesday 25th September at 4pm GMT.

Numbers are limited and are on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone registering to attend and then finding they are unable to do so must cancel their participation before the event.
