On behalf of the Indian Chapter of the Society of Quality Assurance (ICSQA), I am pleased to welcome you to Bengaluru, popularly known as the Garden City and the Silicon City of India, to participate in the 4th International Conference of the Asia Quality Assurance Forum.
It is of great relevance to mention that the Asia QA Forum formed in 2013 comprises the Chinese Society of Quality Assurance (CSQA), Indian Chapter of the Society of Quality Assurance (ICSQA), Japan Society of Quality Assurance (JSQA), Korean Society of Quality Assurance (KSQA), Malaysian Society of Toxicology (MyST), Singapore Society of Quality Assurance (SSQA) and Taiwan Society of Quality Assurance (TSQA). Additionally, the Research Quality Association (RQA) became an Associate Member Forum of the Asia QA Forum in 2017.
As per the objectives of the Asia QA Forum, thus far three international conferences have been conducted in different countries, the 1st conference organized by JSQA in 2013 in Tokyo, the 2nd by KSQA in 2015 in Seoul and the 3rd by CSQA in 2017 in Beijing. The Asia QA Forum 4th International Conference is being organized by ICSQA during 5-6 September 2019 at Bengaluru, India.
Though the regulations relating to GxP (GLP, GMP and GCP) are known to stakeholders, often challenges arise when interpreting, adopting, enforcing, implementing and practicing them by different stakeholders. Such challenges form the basis for better understanding, improvements and harmonization by all stakeholders. In this scenario, the 4th Asia QA Forum provides an opportunity for different stakeholders to share current requirements, practices and challenges for the benefit of all participants for learning and making continuous improvements.
Application of GxP for research, development, production and marketing is increasingly driven by regulations for pharmaceutical, agrochemical/pesticides, industrial chemical, food and other industries. Assuring quality of products and services by way of adopting GxP requirements all through these phases is critical for success of organizations. The role of quality assurance is paramount in this respect in all these phases. The Asia QA Forum therefore provides opportunities for learning from various speakers from Asian countries as well as from other countries.
We welcome the Asia QA Forum members, government officials, regulatory and monitoring authorities, members from other societies, technical experts, professionals, students, sponsors and exhibitors for the event.
We are sure that your participation will be of great value. We look forward to meeting you all at the conference in Bengaluru.
With Best Regards,
Natesan S., MSc, PhD, RQAP-GLP
Founder & President, ICSQA
