The First International Pharmaceutical Compliance Congress and Best Practices Forum was held in June 2007 to bring together company compliance professionals, regulators, lawyers, and consultants working in this interesting and expanding field. The purpose was to hold a truly global conference, addressing the key issues of the day. The first international conference agenda was developed with inputs from company compliance professionals around the topics they wanted to know more about, which continues to be one of the great strengths of these conferences.
Since then, the International Compliance Congress has evolved to encompass global topics in the Plenary Sessions and more locally-focused issues in the Mini Summits as pertinent to the European Union (EU), Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), and the Middle East and Africa (MEA) regions. The 2016 conference continues this trend.
Over the past decade, the international conferences have been held in Brussels (2007, 2015), Paris (2008), Rome (2009), Berlin (2010), Istanbul (2011), Budapest (2012), Madrid (2013) and Dubai (2014). In 2016 we are pleased to hold The Tenth International Pharmaceutical Compliance Congress and Best Practices Forum in Warsaw, Poland with the local partnership of INFARMA, the Employers' Union of Innovative Pharmaceutical Companies. The Congress sponsor remains The International Society of Healthcare Ethics and Compliance Professionals (ETHICS) with the Pharmaceutical Compliance Forum (PCF) as a co-sponsor.
The Congress will feature the following plenary sessions and mini summits:
