Why become a Ph. Eur. expert?
- Help shape Ph. Eur. texts at an early stage.
- Be part of and help build a network that brings together experts from a wide variety of professional backgrounds including experts from national authorities (e.g. pharmacopoeial authority, official medicines control laboratory, licensing authority, inspectorate), from the private sector (pharmaceutical or chemical industry), from academia or from a research organisation. This will give you a unique opportunity to share information and experience and to better understand difficulties linked to the elaboration and revision of pharmacopoeial texts, and to find a common way forward based on a mutual understanding.
- Network and exchange experiences in a European and international environment.
- Make your CV stand out from the crowd! Becoming an expert will give you a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of the Ph. Eur. and the European regulatory system.
