The mission of International Pharmaceutical Excipients Auditing Inc. (IPEA) is to facilitate the assessment of excipient manufacturers to appropriate GMP standards. To achieve this, IPEA provides audits of pharmaceutical and nutriceutical excipient manufacturing facilities following US Pharmacopeia (USP), and IPEC guidelines.
Audits of excipient manufacturing sites are performed on a worldwide basis. IPEA Audit Reports are intended to provide a basis for confirming that the quality systems used to produce the audited excipient meets appropriate current Good Manufacturing Practices.
It is IPEA's goal that, through cGMP audits, deficiencies in excipient manufacturing and packaging can be identified early and potential industry tragedies can be avoided.
