    Chemical manufacturers are faced with operating their plants in a quality environment driven by a multitude of governmental regulations, voluntary industry programs and customer requirements. Because they serve a variety of market segments, it often seems each segment has different, and in some cases incompatible and/or redundant, requirements that drive up complexity and cost. Some manufacturers choose to abandon niche markets, forgoing high margin markets for what are perceived to be less complex quality regulatory requirements. Some choose to operate at a very high level of quality such as Pharmaceutical GMP regulatory requirements, believing such a level will inherently meet all requirements. Others choose to operate in smaller, batch style production, applying specific GMPs regulatory requirements on a batch by batch basis.

    This session seeks to provide a unified view of how to meet regulatory requirements across multiple end user markets, hopefully minimizing complexity and cost.

    Topics will include:
    • Legal requirements to operate a plant that simultaneously serves the Industrial, Food, Dietary Supplements and Pharmaceutical markets
    • How a commodity plant can operate to satisfy multiple markets
    • Advantages and challenges to meeting multiple markets using a batch style production plan
