The second EIPG/PIER Webinar of 2021 will be held in conjunction with UCC School of Pharmacy on Monday 10th May 2021. The topic is 'The importance of Knowledge Management in both the Development and Manufacture of Medicinal Products'

Overview of Webinar
Knowledge management is the process of capturing, distributing and effectively using knowledge. It has always been a key factor in the successful development and manufacture of pharmaceutical products. Understanding the chemical and physical processes underlying material interactions in dosage form formulation, production process and product storage throughout the shelf-life is fundamental in assuring quality, efficacy, and safety of a medicinal product.
Knowledge management has gained increasing importance in the pharmaceutical industry over the past 10-15 years. Its importance has been emphasised in the ICH Q10 guideline which considers knowledge management as a key enabler of the pharmaceutical quality system.
 
The two expert speakers (Dr Marco Adami and Dr Alessandro Regola) will share their practical experience of problems and opportunities in knowledge management encountered during their careers in the pharmaceutical industry.
 
Leaning Outcomes

1. Know the fundamentals of knowledge management.
2. Understand the meaning of the term “knowledge”.
3. Recognise why knowledge management is so important to the pharmaceutical industry.

The first EIPG/PIER Webinar of 2021 will be held in conjunction with UCC School of Pharmacy on Wednesday 3rd February 2021.  It is entitled: “The Practical Implementation of EU Regulations for Medical Devices and in vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices”.

Regulation 2017/745 on Medical Devices (MDR) and Regulation 2017/746 on In-Vitro Diagnostic Devices (IVDR) were agreed at a political level between the three relevant European institutions (European Council, European Parliament and European Commission) and entered into force in May 2017. The Regulations have a staggered transitional period with some aspects becoming legally binding after 6 months of entry into force. The MDR was due to become fully applicable on 26 May 2020 after a three-year transition period. However, due to the global outbreak of Covid-19, full application of the MDR has been postponed and will become fully applicable on 26 May 2021. The IVDR will be fully applicable on 26 May 2022, after a five-year transition period.

The speaker is John Deavin, a pharmacist and Qualified Person who has been responsible for the registration of a large range of medical devices during his career in Regulatory Affairs.

Compliance with the general safety and performance requirements for labelling, technical documentation and quality management systems for medical devices will be some of the subjects discussed. The importance of clinical evaluation, classification of devices and the roles of the Competent Authorities, the European Commission, the Medical Device Coordination Group, Notified Bodies and EUDAMED will be explained.
