CPD Certification

The Autumn Compliance Seminar had been given ‘In Principle’ CPD Certification

EPiC Auditors have received notification from the CPD Certification Service that the further learning value and structure of our Autumn Compliance Seminar on 10th November 2022 conforms to CPD guidelines and we have been given ‘in principle’ certification for our forthcoming event.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is an important part of any business. It’s the intentional process of learning and improving your skills in order to keep up with changing technology, meet new industry standards, and prepare for future job roles or promotions.

CPD requirements are present in most professions and is particularly important in the pharmaceutical industry. Most companies and organisations now prioritise CPD because they ensure a constantly developing workforce. Depending on what kind of work you do and where your career is going, continuing professional development can range from participating in online course every few months or attending an industry conference every year.

It can be difficult to commit time to CPD and attend conferences when you are already busy with other tasks at work, so EPiC Auditors will bring a high quality, informative and thought provoking  seminar to you on Thursday 10th November.

Our full day virtual conference will be delivered live, remotely online between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm (GMT) with interactive sessions and an opportunity to ask our expert panel those burning compliance questions!


We had some fantastic feedback from the attendees of our GMP Symposium 2022 in February 2022:

“Excellent symposium. Exceptionally knowledgeable presenters allowing an insight into the perspective of regulatory inspectors, this is invaluable information for those of us in industry. The platform was very impressive, and is easily the best example of an virtual meeting solution for large events I have encountered. Good breadth of topics covered across the day also, making it an excellent investment of time.”

“Really enjoyed today, very informative and the schedule was well put together covering lots of key points.”

“Well worth attending – a very valuable day”

“Excellent symposium! Expertly planned and delivered, I was not bored at all for the whole day”

“Really informative symposium with interesting contents and knowledgeable speakers. Highly satisfying.”

An application has been made to accredit the event and award CPD points. Certificates will be sent to the email address you have registered with approximately 2-3 weeks after the event.

Autumn Compliance Seminar Speaker Updates

EPiC Auditors Autumn Compliance Seminar: Thursday 10th November 2022

Here’s what our speakers have to say about the pharma compliance event;

 “How to achieve Regulatory compliance for small, new and innovative companies can seem an impossible task. How to maintain pharma compliance for well established global companies can be equally challenging. We hope this seminar provides some useful advice and solutions for all pharmaceutical companies, whatever stage of maturity they are at. We look forward to delivering our second online conference and sharing our thoughts gained from our previous MHRA experiences, as well as from our recent projects within EPIC.”

Liz Allanson, EPiC Auditors Director and Senior Consultant
EPiC Auditors Autumn Pharma Compliance Seminar

The transitional measures in place to support implementation of the Clinical Trials Regulation which replaces the Clinical Trials Directive are rather complex, and it can be confusing for clinical trial teams to know which sets of documents and requirements should be referred to depending on the location and legislation under which the clinical trial is conducted. This presents risks to compliance and a need for Sponsors to ensure that they have adaptable systems to cope with the flexibility of risk proportionate approaches proposed by MHRA, without overlooking trial specific or regulatory requirements for EU trials. At our Autumn Pharma Compliance Seminar, myself and Louise Mawer (ex MHRA Senior GCP Inspector) will be providing practical advice and real-world examples for Sponsors and clinical trials teams on key aspects of managing clinical trial activities during the legislative transitional phase.We will also be reflecting on the challenges for clinical trial supply chains following the UK’s exit from the EU, to help those involved in clinical trial supply understand the GMP expectations for IMPs, non-IMPs and QP certification requirements. The transitional implementation phase of the Clinical Trials Regulations has presented additional challenges at the IMP/GCP interface, and we hope our session will raise awareness of the different terminology and expectations to help maintain compliance with the changing requirements.
