SL Controls, a Sligo based Equipment Systems Engineering firm are set to host a seminar on Data Integrity for over 60 professionals from the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) Ireland. Held in the Model Art Centre, Sligo on November 16th, this will be the first time the seminar has moved outside of a large city to be held in Sligo. (Previously Cork & Dublin)

The delegation of engineering professionals working in the Pharmaceutical and related industries will also enjoy a tour of the local AbbVie plant.

This seminar will have representatives from AbbVie Ireland, Amgen, Pfizer, SL Controls and industry leaders from other leading Pharmaceutical companies and discuss topics such as ‘Designing Data Integrity into Equipment’ by Shane Loughlin CTO of SL Controls and ‘Data Integrity in a Mature Quality Environment’ by Ann-Marie Ward, AbbVie.

Data Integrity is a current topic following a number of warning letters issued recently by the FDA and other regulatory authorities related to data integrity along with new draft guidelines issued earlier this year by The European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the Pharmaceutical Inspection Co-operation Scheme (PIC/S). The guidelines help ensure that data integrity is maintained during the process of testing, manufacturing, packaging, distributing and monitoring of medicines.

SL Controls are always looking for opportunities to invest in the future of engineering and to foster and support the next generation of professionals working in pharmaceuticals and life sciences.
