Making more quality medicines in more places

To strengthen the medicines supply chain and help guard against potential shortages that can impact patient care, more quality medicines need to be made in more places. Beyond supporting innovation in medicines themselves, facilitating adoption of advanced manufacturing technology (AMT) like pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing (PCM) is an essential part of the solution.

At USP, we’re collaborating with our expert volunteers and other stakeholders across the healthcare ecosystem to reduce barriers to adoption of advanced manufacturing technology and pharmaceutical continuous manufacturing by:

  • Addressing knowledge gaps,

  • Working with partners to certify and validate related manufacturing processes,

  • Weighing the potential for incentives, investments, and other policy reforms, and

  • Exploring where there is a need and opportunity to develop new guidelines, best practices, and quality standards to help set expectations for quality, speed approvals, and support public trust.
