To streamline the process of providing information about the source, reliability and safety of their products, the International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council has updated its user guide for putting excipient information on packages. The guide covers such critical areas as excipient manufacturing processes and regulation, quality-control issues and a security overview of the supply-chain process. The council anticipates that the U.S. FDA will soon require a unique facility identifier, including e-mail and points of contact, for all excipient suppliers.
