April 24-26: Workshop
*Short Courses require separate registration.
Sound chemistry, manufacturing, and controls (CMC) are fundamental to the manufacture of safe, high quality, reliable biopharmaceuticals and devices. The growing complexity of products and technologies, along with increasing globalization and other factors, creates manufacturing challenges that can be difficult to resolve. Through three parallel tracks, DIA’s CMC Workshop will provide a thorough understanding of the regulatory, technical, and quality requirements and strategies needed to support problem-solving as well as continuous improvements and innovation in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. Opportunities for interactive sharing of information and approaches will be an important part of the program.
This program was developed by the CMC Working Group of the DIA Regulatory Affairs Community.
This program is co-sponsored with the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists.Approved by the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society for 12 RAC credits.

- 18 breakouts – these are complete sessions addressing the three topical themes
Why come to DIA's CMC Workshop over any other CMC event?
- This workshop has a laser focus on regulatory applications and translations to technical and quality processes – the strategy behind the science. How do regulations and guidelines inform the processes of this industry? This is the setting to find out.
- One word: global. We will facilitate discussions with a highly global, regulatory focus, concentrating on regulations and guidelines from multiple ICH and non-ICH regions by regulatory authorities from those regions.
- Multi-track. One track and one focus will not cut it for DIA. This is truly comprehensive content that will meticulously cover regulatory, technical, and GMP/Quality processes and how they work together.
- No important topic unturned. We will address a broad array of innovative products: drugs (small molecule), complex products/generics, large molecules (biologics), biosimilars, and drug device combination products. This is unpresented in any other offerings this year! No other meeting will have this scope and depth!
- Addressing regulation, development, and technical issues for large and small molecules
- Global perspectives: Regulatory and industry representation on requirements and issues from major global regions: US, EU, Japan, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East
- Case studies and interactive discussions to address the CMC challenges for today’s products
