How to hone your analytical skills and obtain high-quality data in the era of GMP requirements
With increased regulatory pressures on the pharmaceutical industry, there is a growing need for capable analysts who can ensure appropriate scientific practices in laboratories and manufacturing sites worldwide.
The mass media proclaimed the above as the new millennium began. Acad-
emics and professionals have been holding conferences about it for a while
now. Designers themselves have insisted on it all along. But what, exactly,
does that statement mean? A proliferation of hip hotels and award-winning
potato peelers do not an era make.
As a young teenager raised until 1964 in Casablanca, Morocco (a former
French colony), I always dreamed of having an electric guitar. Influenced by the
success of such groups as The Ventures, The Shadows (the British equivalent of
The Ventures), and, later, The Beatles, I thought that I too could one day perform
on stage. Fender guitars were my favorite, but since I could not afford even the
cheapest model, I would try to console myself by admiring the many exorbitantly
priced models displayed at a well-known music store...
Publication of this book is a milestone for the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative
Council. It demonstrates the Council's unique capacity to bring together water and
sanitation professionals from industrialised and developing countries to formulate
practical guidance on a key issue of the day.
Industrialised countries have extensive experience of the problems caused by water
pollution and the strategies and technologies available to control it.
Developing a new functional food is an expensive
process. Food companies have traditionally funded research
for new food product formulations but for functional foods,
the stakes are higher—for both food companies and con-
sumers. Government investment in basic and applied
research will promote the development of functional foods,
but additional incentives are needed to reward private
companies that pioneer new health claims.
The Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) is an international, non-profit trade association dedicated
to advancing environmentally and socially responsible aquaculture.
The Alliance was founded in 1997 with 59 members in the Americas, Europe and Asia. It now
comprises 1100 members in 70 countries and has become the most prominent industry
organization representing the global aquaculture business (www.gaalliance.org).
This Handbook of Manufacturing: Regulations and Quality focuses on all regulatory
aspects and requirements that govern how drugs are produced for evaluation (and,
later, sale to and use in) humans. The coverage ranges from what the issues are at
the early stages (when the amounts are small and the materials of limited sophistication)
up to until the issue is reproducibly and continuously making large volumes
of a highly sophisticated manufactured product.
IFRS 4 is intended to cover all entities that issue insurance contracts, not only
insurance companies in the legal or regulatory sense. Further interpretation of the
Implementation Guidance, Basis for Conclusions and IFRS 4 are required for an
entity to apply the standard to its own facts, circumstances and individual
transactions. Also, some of the information in this publication is based on
interpretations of current literature, which may change as practice and
implementation guidance continue to develop.
A synthesis of the material presented at the convening and the points made during discussion
have led to the development of the recommendations for change listed above. Researchers
should simultaneously pursue agendas that both inform potential intervention strategies and
examine the link between food marketing and obesity. Advocates can examine current policies
including the FCC and FTC regulatory environments in order to pursue policy options and
advertising regulations for television and digital media. The public’s commitment is needed to
accomplish these goals.
Since many social businesses are also SMEs, measures that facilitate access to finance for
SMEs could also help social businesses. In this context, of notable importance are the support
and regulatory frameworks for venture capital, in particular the steps to be taken to develop a
EU passport for Venture Capital funds. The extent to which work on establishing such a
passport might aid social businesses is central in considering the effectiveness and efficiency
of the options identified in this impact assessment.
Having been longtime observers of the mental health profession, we
have come to know the value and benefits that its professionals offer
to consumers of their services. Unfortunately, many of the consumers
whom professionals take into therapy try to do them harm in return.
With a proliferation of licensing boards and other regulatory authorities,
consumers have easier and more numerous options to seek redress
for perceived malevolent and negligent acts.
Zimbabwe continues to be among the least competitive economies in the World. According to the World Bank 2011―Doing Business Survey‖ Zimbabwe ranked 157 out of 183 countries in the world, a move up of two positions compared with the 2009 report. Its ranking however is still well below those of neighboring countries such as South Africa (34), Namibia (69), and Botswana (52) (Figure 2).
Renewable fuels standard (RFS) policies are becoming a popular public policy mechanism for developing the market for renewable fuels in the transportation sector. During the past decade, U.S. states and several countries began implementing these more market-based (less command and control) policies to support increased biofuels production and use. This paper presents an overview of current and proposed U.S. state-level policies, as well as selected electric sector policies and international fuel standard policies. Current U.S.
NBN Co’s announced intention is to lodge a Special Access Undertaking (SAU) for approval by the
Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). NBN Co’s proposed approach to the SAU
is further detailed in Section 8.10, Special Access Undertaking with the ACCC, below.
NBN Co has previously indicated its view that the SAU could be finalised and lodged with the ACCC
once key policy matters such as the number and location of PoIs and the approach to uniform
national wholesale pricing were finalised.
Despite attempts to secure harrnonisation of accounting practice, significant variations in
accounting rules and practice continue to arise in European countries, variations which give
rise to compliance costs for multinational companies.
Firstly, this paper considers the relevance of international accounting harmonisation for
European business. It then proceeds to examine accounting regulation in three countries:
Spain, Sweden and Austria, highlighting the key regulatory issues of the 'true and fair' view
requirement and the link between taxation and accounting.
Buying advertising on the Mobile Web is similar to buying display
advertising on the Internet. Graphical, interactive display
ads are the predominant ad unit. In most cases, Mobile Web
banner ad impressions can be purchased on a cost per thousand
(CPM) or a cost per click (CPC) basis. Mobile offers targeting
possibilities beyond that of traditional media. As this develops
further, we would expect to see a range of targeting options
made available covering context, demographic and behavioral
Many enterprises that compete in today’s market model business problems and opportunities and implement model
scoring, which means applying the model to answer strategic questions. Applications for campaign planning, fraud
detection, risk management, and customer retention require the processing of very large volumes of data that is stored in
Model training (development) typically involves many passes through the data. Once trained, the model score often
depends on customer-specific information that is frequently under regulatory and security restrictions.
The second edition of Safety Evaluation of Medical Devices continues to focus
on the objective of the first edition—to serve as a single-volume practical guide
for those who are responsible for or concerned with ensuring safety in the use
and manufacture of medical devices. It benefits from recognition of the limitations
and shortcomings of the previous edition, and also reflects the changes in
regulations, science, and the marketplace.
Exchanges have suggested several complementary rationales for
establishing themselves as a source of corporate governance-related regulations.
In essence, by raising transparency and discouraging illegal or irregular
practices, exchanges are themselves able to accumulate an amount of
When a new veterinary medicinal product is
launched into widespread use, adverse drug reactions
may become apparent. These may be seen in
the treated animal patients, in exposed users or as
adverse effects on the environment. Additionally,
they may manifest as excess residues of the drug
in food of animal origin. As a consequence, legislation
and regulatory approaches have developed
across the globe to address these issues and to
ensure that the continued safety of these products
can be monitored and, where necessary,
that regulatory actions can be pursued to assuage
