Once the potent compound safety training news was released, we have received very positive responses and many professionals from the pharmaceutical and chemical industries have signed up the training course, and now enrollment for this session is closed. In response to strong interests in this course and many more requests from clients, the second session of this course is scheduled from June 30th to July 1st, 2023. Welcome to join this practical, highly informative and valuable training course!

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic highlights the importance of health. In recent years, more and more drugs are at the stage of research and development and mass production. Toxicities of many of them, such as antibody drug conjugates (ADC), are very high. How to manage its risk in R&D and mass production is an important issue. Because of this reason, we have often received the following questions from pharmaceutical supply chain companies:

How to identify the risks of highly active pharmaceutical ingredients and determine its occupational exposure band (OEB)?

How to develop the internal occupational exposure limit (OEL) (OEL) for highly potent compounds?

How to perform equipment containment performance (SMEPAC) testing? How to interpret its testing results?

How to evaluate whether the existing facilities meet the production requirements of highly active pharmaceutical ingredients with classification in OEB 4 or OEB 5?

How to control the exposure level of highly active pharmaceutical ingredients?

How to determine the acceptable surface limit (ASL)?

How to determine the acceptable daily exposure (ADE) or the permitted daily exposure (PDE)?

How to protect workers for handling highly potent compounds during the R & D stage?

How to establish an effective highly potent compound management system?

In order to answer such questions as stated above and improve safety risk management level of highly potent compounds in pharmaceutical supply chain enterprises, we are pleased to hold the " Potent Compound  Boot Camp" course in China with SafeBridge®, a world-renowned drug safety assessment consulting firm.


In 2019, SafeBridge® and us successfully held a training session on a similar theme in Shanghai, which had received a very positive feedback from our training attendees.  In this upcoming training, we will bring the current cutting-edge management experience and best practices to the Chinese students, empower and equip them with the necessary professional skills to help companies manage the risks of highly active pharmaceutical ingredients, and ensure enterprises are operating at sustainable mode and at acceptable minimum risk level.
