ACI is pleased to announce its Latin America Summit on Pharmaceutical & Medical Device Regulatory Compliance, taking place March 11 – 13, 2013 in Panama City, Panama

The Latin America Summit on Pharmaceutical & Medical Device Regulatory Compliance will be the premier program for pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device manufacturers on reducing liability exposures when structuring and conducting clinical trials overseas. It will cover the complete international regulatory landscape, including privacy considerations, mitigating FCPA violations, interacting with the FDA and international governments, and ensuring that marketing activities are done compliantly.

Featuring multiple networking and benchmarking opportunities, your registration fee includes multiple breakfasts and lunches. Hear how your industry peers are facing the challenges unique to the Latin American region, and leave the conference with real takeaways on how to improve your research and compliance protocols. 

Topics of discussion will include:
  • U.S. FDA regulations and how to prepare for a government inspection/audit
  • Increased focus on training and monitoring of good clinical practices
  • Handling,  storage  and administration of the drug in accordance with defined protocols
  • FCPA’s expansive jurisdictional reach and what increased cooperation among international enforcement agencies means in Latin America
  • The international privacy environment and strategies for cross-border data transfer 
  • Educating the sales team on a drug/device risk and making sure they understand these risks before going into the field

Increase your conference learning by attending the pre-conference Primer on FDA Fundamentals. Aimed at providing a primer to professionals who have limited experience working with FDA on regulatory matters, or who are new to the pharmaceutical regulatory space, this workshop will provide you with a basic overview of FDA regulations and will prepare you for the more in-depth discussions that will take place throughout the conference.
