No Room for Complacency Ireland’s pharmaceutical sector deserves particular credit for its contribution to Ireland’s export-led recovery but there is no room for complacency if we are to continue to grow the sector, writes Heather Humphreys TD, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation. As Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, I am delighted to provide the foreword to the 2018 Irish PharmaChem Yearbook and Directory. Ireland has a long tradition of pharmaceutical operational excellence and has been attracting major manufacturing facilities for over 50 years. That’s why we have developed deep expertise and an experienced, talented skills base in manufacturing. We are now determined to help the industry develop further across Ireland. It has been especially encouraging, in that context, to see the increasing regional spread of investment from this sector over the last number of years. Cork, of course, is longestablished as a cluster of global significance, but we are now witnessing the additional development of growing regional clusters in Waterford, Athlone and Sligo. This bodes well for the future of the sector and the Government will continue doing everything it can to help support its growth.
a backdrop of continuing strong levels of foreign direct investment (FDI) from a range of industries with record multinational companydriven job creation. The expertise of the IDA in driving this forward has been paramount, not just in terms of winning new investment but also supporting the continued growth of companies who have long made Ireland their home. But the most credit for Ireland’s continued success with FDI lies with our people. Our young workforce is educated, dynamic and flexible and has deservedly forged a stellar reputation across the world. They continue to be the main reason why companies from all over the world are attracted to our island.
The NIBRT Effect Pharmaceutical and biopharma companies, of course, come to Ireland for many different reasons. One of those is because of our worldclass National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT). This purpose-
Heather Humphreys TD, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation.
More generally, Ireland remains, despite the challenges presented by global economic and political uncertainties, a stable, competitive and pro-business economy. As has been welldocumented, we have emerged from a period of recovery and have now entered a phase of strong and sustained economic growth. We have, in fact, been the fastest growing economy in the Eurozone for the last three years, with unemployment decreasing steadily.
The Pharma Contribution Getting Ireland back on that upward economic trajectory has required significant hard work from across the public and private sectors. The pharmaceutical sector, it must be said, deserves particular credit for their contribution to that export-led recovery. The statistics make compelling reading: ● Medical and pharmaceutical products worth over €30 billion were exported in 2016 alone, accounting for 25% of the country’s total exports; ● Ireland was the world’s seventh largest exporter of medicinal and pharmaceutical productions in 2015; ● The country is now home to the top 10 global biopharma companies.
These impressive figures come against

Ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foreword built and state-of-the-art facility is a global leader in cutting-edge, high quality training and research. It is testament to the quality of NIBRT and its staff that many of the pharmaceutical companies that have located in Ireland cite it as a critical factor in their decision to invest here. While this sector has seen significant success in recent years, we know that competition for global investment remains intense and that there can be no room for complacency. That is why the Government is committed to enhancing our growing reputation for research excellence and increasing the number of enterprises engaged in first-class research. The Government will continue to invest too in Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education system, thereby ensuring the continuing pipeline of talent for the industry. We are committed as well to improving Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competitiveness so that the country is best-placed to secure new investment, whether from companies already located here or those seeking a new European base from which to do business. While there is much work to do, I think the future is bright for the industry and for its partnership with Ireland. I wish PharmChem Ireland every success in the coming year and I look forward to working together in the time ahead.

Corporate migration and Brexit are two of the biggest issues facing Ireland Inc. as we move forward. How will they effect the pharmaceutical and chemical sectors here? Matt Moran, Director, BioPharmaChem Ireland, investigates.
A Model of Substance As the sector here continues to grow and prosper, the world becomes a more uncertain place. Given the global nature of the biopharmachem sector, it behoves us all to pay proper attention to international trends and developments. Firmly on our radar are Brexit and the evolving situation in the USA. Ibec sees this as a major challenge for the country. According to Ibec CEO, Danny McCoy, Ireland remains the strongest performer in a resurgent EU economy, with annual output up 5.8% in the second quarter of 2017. The strength of the performance is all the more remarkable given the unique extent of the exposure the island of Ireland has to the Brexit process. Brexit’s effects are already impacting upon the Irish economy as a result of the rapid depreciation of Sterling against the euro, and the falling purchasing power of UK households has already resulted in slower exports for Ireland from tourism and agri-food sales. Growth, however, continues to be propelled by Ireland’s role as a global trading hub. These countervailing forces reflect the open nature of Ireland, which has been ranked as the world’s most globalised nation. The transformation of the country is reflected in recent Census figures, which report that 17% of the population were
born outside of the country, as well as the facts that trade, as measured by combined exports and imports, is 216% of GDP; that foreign direct investment levels per capita are among the top five countries in the world and; that business migration looks set to have doubled in a half decade, propelled by the OECD corporate tax process.
The Double Helix in Our DNA It is no exaggeration to say that globalisation is part of the Irish DNA, and the ‘Double Helix’ the country is grappling with currently relates to the positive and negative effects that both corporate migration and Brexit present. The expansion of business migration in 2015 alone was an increase of 40% that gave rise to an extraction of activity that propelled Irish GDP growth to 34% in cash terms and boosted corporate tax revenue by 47%. This is equivalent to a modern-day resource find, in this case with intellectual capital or intangible assets, which brings with it opportunities to transform the national growth potential through increased infrastructure investment; whilst in the short term, increases competitiveness pressures as costs continue to rise from a lack of supply. The latter is most acute in housing stock for Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
Sector Overview Ireland, where the speed of supply cannot keep up with the speed of current demands. The population of Ireland is rising significantly, yet building has not returned to the levels seen before the international financial crisis of more than a decade ago. The housing shortage problem is somewhat ironic, given that some prominent commentators forecast that Ireland would need to knock down housing stock to deal with perceived oversupply. The positives outweigh the negatives from the corporate migration trend, but this requires moving the policy mind-set from one of austerity to one of expansiveness. It also requires greater innovation in adapting to the constraints of EU fiscal rules by greater participation in public-private partnerships. The extension of the Juncker investment plan and the role of the European Investment Bank should greatly help Ireland rise to maximise the opportunity.
Brexit and the Pharma Sector By far the greatest competitor for Ireland in attracting international business migration has been the UK. In the context of Brexit, a win for Ireland is a win for the EU in the future. The EU-27 needs to allow countries to compete, fairly but aggressively. The speculation on EU consolidated common corporate tax changes are unhelpful and ultimately King Canute-like in their effectiveness. Brexit is not without positives for Ireland in the race for corporate investment, and Dublin in particular is seen as a serious contender for financial institutional migration from the

UK. Overall, however, the impact of Brexit on Ireland is likely to be negative. Trade with the UK, which accounts for nearly 80% for small and medium enterprisesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; exports, is crucial for the indigenous business community. Many of these companies are engaged in low margin, high volume trade, which is very sensitive to sharp exchange rate movements, as have already occurred. The Irish labour market is heavily correlated with the UK labour market, such that any significant downturn for the UK economy will be promulgated through that channel also. In the case of a hard Brexit,
Ireland will need to diversify away more significantly from the UK, but this will neither be costless nor immediate. Ibec, which represents Irish business in all its forms, see the opportunities from globalisation continuing to dominate the short-term frictional costs. The length of the transition period offered to the UK in Brexit discussions will also be important. Indeed, discussions on the future of a multispeed EU should be advanced to show a path for greater future UK participation within the Single Market and customs union. It is the

desire of Irish business to have the UK as a partner, not just a competitor.
The Investment Flow The BioPharma sector is a major component of the continued flow of FDI into the country. The flow of investment has not stalled as some commentators suggested might happen as a result of developments in the USA. Cumulative capital investment this century will easily top the €10 billion mark and Janssen, MSD, Eli Lilly, and Henkel Ireland have all made major announcements in 2017. Key to this is the fact that Ireland continues to invest in substance, tangible substance, manifesting itself in high end manufacturing and innovation centres, now the top 10 biopharma companies in the world are all in this country. Ibec will lead a campaign, Ireland: A Model of Substance, which BPCI will be a major supporter of, designed to ensure that the entire globe will be made aware of the success of the Irish business model.

Science Foundation Ireland 2. To be the exemplar in building partnerships that fund excellent science and drive it out into the market and society; 3. To have the most engaged and scientifically informed public; 4. To represent the ideal modern public service organisation, staffed in a lean and flexible manner, with efficient and effective management. The Agenda 2020 publication outlines the reasoning behind these objectives, the actions designed to achieve them and the KPIs which measure progress. A progress audit and annual plan are published annually.
Science Foundation Ireland Awards Science Foundation Ireland makes competitive grants/awards based upon merit review for excellence and impact by international distinguished scientists. As the largest competitive research funder in Ireland, Science Foundation Ireland offers a balanced portfolio of programmes, many involving national and international collaborations with industry (small and large), charities (Wellcome Trust, Irish Cancer Society) international funders (National Science Foundation, National Institute of Health (USA), Royal Society, EPSRC and BBSRC (UK), Department of Education and Learning (N Ire), National Natural Science Foundation China) and national funders in Ireland (Teagasc, HRB, EPA, SEAI, Marine Institute, etc.). This balanced portfolio includes both investigator initiated and thematic calls, project grants and large-scale centre awards, short and long-term funding support for early career researchers, emerging and established research leaders, individual and collaborative awards. Science Foundation Ireland offers a number of funding mechanisms, which help industry and academia build competitive advantage by enhancing their R&D capabilities; enable them to engage in projects of scale, excellence and relevance; and allow them to explore novel opportunities and priorities – all with significant state funding. The agency has a range of funding programmes that suit industry informed research and industry-academic interactions at a number of levels, ranging from seeding an initial engagement with an academic group to large scale collaborative research endeavours.
Science Foundation Ireland Research Centres SFI Research Centres are major funding awards which link world-class scientists and engineers in large-scale partnerships across academia and industry to address crucial research questions. In 2017, four new world-class Science Foundation Ireland Research Centres were approved through an investment of €74m from the Government over the next six years, and a further investment of €40m from industry. The Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
four SFI Research Centres will engage in over 80 collaborations with industry partners; both indigenous and foreign; large and small. The four new SFI Research Centres will address the following: CONFIRM aims to transform Ireland’s manufacturing industry to become a world-leader in smart manufacturing. The manufacturing sector is the second largest employer in Ireland and accounts for €110 billion in exports. Smart manufacturing optimises production systems, adding intelligence and enhanced information technology. These new technologies will be at the heart of the factories of the future, increasing product line adaptability, enabling real-time decision making, shortening supplychains, and speeding up the development of new innovations to produce higher-quality goods at reduced costs across all industry sectors. CONFIRM will be revolutionary for Irish manufacturing competitiveness, delivering the technological advances and expertise for a smart manufacturing innovation ecosystem, enabling companies to compete within the rapidly changing global landscape, and boosting Ireland’s reputation as a leading international manufacturing location. BEACON - Bioeconomy Research Centre: The modern world is dependent upon fossil resources to produce everyday items that we consume. Since these resources are finite and depleting, it is essential to develop alternative technologies based on renewable biological resources. The future economy must use biological resources sustainably to produce valuable goods, such as bioactive molecules, chemical building block, plastics, fuels, and energy. This future economic activity is referred to as the bioeconomy. In Ireland, the agri-food and marine sectors produce high volumes of residues during food production. The conversion of these residues to higher value products will create new business opportunities. New value chains will allow
Science Foundation Ireland these industries to diversify and add value to the sector, increase resource efficiency and complement food production activities. 80% of agri-food companies are in rural Ireland; thus, the bioeconomy will be a key driver to stimulate rural and agricultural redevelopment. The BEACON SFI Research Centre addresses multiple scientific, technological and social challenges to convert this vision into reality. FutureNeuro is focused on addressing the socio-economic burden caused by chronic and rare neurological diseases. In an internationally unique manner, FutureNeuro links innovative neurotherapeutics development with genomic and biomarker-based patient stratification, a national eHealth infrastructure and a nationwide clinical network. Building initially on world-leading pre-clinical and clinical research into epilepsy and motor neurone disease, the FutureNeuro Centre is a scalable platform that will expand quickly to focus on other chronic and rare neurological diseases. FutureNeuro is relevant to the 700,000 people living with a neurological condition in Ireland, with an associated health and societal cost greater than €3 billion each year. It will strengthen Ireland’s ability to attract foreign direct investment from companies active in the multi-trillion euro global market for diagnostics, treatments and medtech for neurological diseases, and facilitate indigenous companies seeking to access this market. I-FORM Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre will enhance processing efficiency for Irish manufacturing, allowing the production of highly customised 3-D printed components exhibiting superior performance. This will be achieved through the efficient use of advanced process monitoring, incorporating embedded sensors and process control in the entire value chain from “powder to final product”. Advanced data analytic techniques will ensure superior product quality and reduce manufacturing waste. The Centre will enhance the manufacturability of bespoke components and products using 3D printing techniques. This technology enables manufactured components to be customised for individual end users. For example, artificial joints and implantable medical devices can be tailored to match the needs of individual patients. The I-FORM Centre will make a distinct and positive impact on the international competitiveness of Irish additive manufacturing. These new centres will join the network of world-leading SFI Research Centres that focus on strategically important areas of research for Ireland. Each SFI Research Centre spans several Higher Education Institutions and collaborates with multiple industry partners. A number of SFI Research Centres which have a strong focus on pharma-related investments include: The Alimentary Pharmabiotic Centre (APC) Microbiome Institute investigates the close
links between diet, the microbiota and health status. The Centre aims to provide the necessary scientific basis for the selection of healthpromoting bacteria and food constituents for incorporation into ‘functional foods’ for improved health, and which can support the development of novel bioactives to treat intestinal and infectious diseases. The research undertaken by the APC will address important societal issues, such as disease prevention, improved cognition and healthy ageing, and is supported by food, biotechnology, pharmaceutical and diagnostic industries. INFANT, Irish Centre for Fetal and Neonatal Translational Research, is an international leader in the development of innovative technologies in perinatal healthcare, improving
treatment and care for pregnant mothers and newborn babies. The INFANT team are a diverse group of doctors and scientists, supported by strong industry partners, international collaborators and business and regulatory advisors. The Research Centre’s collaborations have resulted in the development of screening and diagnostic tests and novel methods of monitoring pregnancy and newborns. Acting as a hub for innovation, research in INFANT spans three of the major priority areas outlined in the Research Prioritisation Report: Diagnostics, Medical Devices and Connected Health. These areas are associated with large global markets that have a strong Irish base. Centre for Research in Medical Devices (CÚRAM) aims to develop implantable ‘smart’ medical devices for chronic ailments, including cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, neural, and respiratory diseases. Strong clinical collaborations with industry partners and hospital groups enable the rapid translation of these devices to clinical settings. The multidisciplinary centre brings together experts in biomaterials and drug delivery, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, glycoscience and device design. The Synthesis & Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC) aims to better understand mechanisms, control processes and predict outcomes for the efficient and environmentally sustainable production of safe medicines. This will be achieved by utilising a ‘moleculeto-medicine’ approach that encompasses chemical synthesis, crystal engineering, and drug production and manufacture.

Are You Ready for
REACH 2018? All chemical substances produced or imported from outside the EU between one and 100 tonnes per year, need to be registered with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) by May 31, 2018. Are you ready?
May 31, 2018, is the last deadline for registering chemicals under the REACH Regulation, by which time companies need to register to be legally permitted to import or place chemical substances on the EU market. It is anticipated that this last deadline for manufacturers and importers into the EU, will involve a much wider group of participants with varied levels of knowledge of the process. For those registering for the first time in 2018, it is important to plan well in advance by becoming familiar with the process and the information requirements to register to ensure successful registration before the deadline. In an effort to simplify the process of registration, ECHA have published a REACH 2018 web site (https://echa. europa.eu/reach-2018) which breaks the process down into seven steps: 1. Know your portfolio 2. Find your co-registrants 3. Get organised with your co-registrants 4. Assess hazard and risk 5. Prepare your registration as a IUCLID dossier 6. Submit your registration dossier 7. Keep your registration up-to- date
1. Know Your Portfolio Starting from your portfolio, you need to identify those substances which are subject to registration by May 31, 2018. Refresh your knowledge on REACH duties and decide for which substances you want to continue on the market. Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
Unambiguous and correct identification of your substances is essential to a successful and compliant registration. Review that the substance identity information you provided in the pre-registration is still valid. Familiarise yourself with the REACH information requirements triggered by the tonnage and uses of your substances. Later in the process, you will need to compile all the required information in a registration dossier using the IUCLID software application (See step 5: Prepare your registration dossier in IUCLID).
2. Find Your Co-registrants All co-registrants for the same substance are part of a cooperation group called a substance information exchange forum (SIEF). They all have to share scientific data on the substance and register jointly. Find who intends to register or has already registered your substance. Many substances have already been registered. A list of already registered substances is published on ECHAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. If your substance is already registered, find out who the lead registrant is. You probably received emails from that company already. Otherwise, check from the Joint submission pages in REACH-IT. The lead registrant will put you in contact with the SIEF. If your substance has not been registered yet, find the contact details of your potential co-registrants in the pre-SIEF pages of REACH-IT. Review your own contact details. Once you are in contact with the SIEF, confirm that your substance is the same as in the existing registration. If your substance has not been registered yet, check with
REACH 2018 all co-registrants that you intend to register the same substance before forming a SIEF.
3. Get Organised with Your Co-registrants If no registration for your substance exists yet, you have to agree with your co-registrants how to work and communicate within your SIEF. This can include hiring a consultant or sharing the workload among SIEF members. Each SIEF must also select a lead registrant who will submit the lead registration dossier, to enable the co-registrants to submit their member registration dossiers. Model SIEF agreements have been set up by industry associations. Links to their web pages are available from the Accredited Stakeholders page on ECHA’s website. If the lead registrant registered for the 2010 or 2013 deadlines, it is likely that the preparatory work has already been done. You need to contact the lead registrant and ask to become a member of the joint submission after agreeing on data and cost sharing. SIEF members must share available scientific data and decide how to fill data gaps. This takes time and has to be done before preparing and submitting the registration dossier. You need to discuss the relevance, reliability and adequacy of the data available. Additionally, you may need to select from overlapping data. If a registration already exists, you need to negotiate with the existing registrants to get access to the submitted data. However, you might not need access to all the data, but only to the data required for your tonnage band. You might also consider using your own data. This needs to be discussed with your co-registrants. Under REACH, the costs of registration need to be shared in a fair, transparent and non-discriminatory way. Data sharing is not designed to generate profit for any party, but to share the actual costs. SIEF members must reach an agreement on how to share the cost of data and the cost of SIEF administration. Importantly, you only pay for the information and the management of the SIEF that directly relates to your own registration. You also have the right to know the basis for the costs you pay. Remember that data submitted
Unambiguous and correct identification of your substances is essential to a successful and compliant registration.
more than 12 years ago can be used free of charge. As a last resort, if you cannot agree on data and cost sharing with your co-registrants, ECHA can assess your case. This applies to disagreements on performing missing tests, as well as disputes on sharing the data and its cost. The data-sharing dispute procedure is free of charge and can be managed without legal support.
● If manufacturing or importing more than 10 tonnes per year, you need to carry out the chemical safety assessment (CSA) and record it in a chemical safety report (CSR). Additionally, during the SIEF discussions, the co-registrants decide if the lead registrant will submit the chemical safety report jointly on behalf of the co-registrants or if the individual registrants will submit their own CSR separately.
If you are a lead registrant, your registration dossier includes the information submitted by you on behalf of all the co-registrants, such as the boundary composition of the substance, classification and labelling of the substance, uses, and (robust) study summaries, where applicable. In addition, as a lead registrant, you also add your own company-specific and substancespecific registration information in the same dossier. It is good practice that you share the common parts of the registration dossier with the other members of the joint submission in the IUCLID format, as it contains information related to the safe use of the substance that needs to be known by the co-registrants. The lead dossier must be successfully submitted before the members can send their own dossiers to ECHA. Therefore, as a lead, prepare your registration dossier well before the deadline, so that your co-registrants have enough time to meet the deadline as well.
4. Assess Hazard and Risk An important part of the SIEF work with your co-registrants is to compile information on uses, hazards and risks in order to demonstrate safe use of the substance. You will need to consider the following regulatory, scientific and technical requirements: ● Gather information on uses and current conditions of use from the supply chain. Contact your industry association for best practice in your sector; ● Collect hazard data as requested by REACH information requirements triggered by the tonnage and uses of the substance; ● Assess the coverage and quality of the hazard information about the substance available within the SIEF; ● Define the strategy to fill in any resulting data gaps (e.g. carrying out new studies, justifying missing information using scientifically solid read across, data waivers etc.); ● Agree classification and labelling within the SIEF (based on the hazard data); ● Record all hazard data and classification in the registration dossier; and
5. Prepare Your Registration as a IUCLID Dossier After you discuss and exchange data within the SIEF, the lead registrant and each member registrant should have all the relevant information available to create their registration dossiers using the IUCLID format. There are three options: IUCLID Cloud for SMEs, IUCLID 6 and REACH-IT. If you are an SME or a consultant working for an SME, the IUCLID Cloud for SMEs helps you to avoid any installation and gives you easy access, automated, regular back-ups and updates by ECHA. As a consultant, the cloud version enables you to transparently collaborate with your SME clients and to easily and securely share IUCLID information with them. Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
REACH 2018 If you are a member registrant, your registration dossier includes information specific to your company and your substance. This covers, for example, information about the identity of your substance (composition, analytical data), the identified uses that are relevant for your company, and the estimated volumes of manufacture or import. If you choose not to participate in the joint submission for some information requirements, you need to include your own data for that requirement in your dossier, together with an appropriate justification on why you are opting out. If you agree with all information submitted on your behalf by the lead registrant, you can also create your member registration dossier directly in REACH-IT. The dossier creation wizard in REACH-IT guides you through this process by showing you which data you need to provide. ECHA has developed supporting material and tools which are directly available in IUCLID to help you prepare your registration dossier: ● The
Validation Assistant will show if your registration dossier is complete, apart from information checked manually by the ECHA staff;
Dossier Quality Assistant (included in the Validation Assistant) will help detect potential inconsistencies in your registration dossier;
The Report generator will allow you to generate your chemical safety report (CSR);
The Dissemination preview will show which parts of your registration will be published by ECHA, based on the legal requirements and your requests to keep certain information confidential.
6. Submit Your Registration Dossier Your registration dossier should now be ready to submit in REACH-IT. If you submit before April 2018, you will benefit from a reduced processing time and receive ECHA’s decision on your registration within three weeks of your submission. Otherwise, you may only receive your decision at the end of August 2018. Before the submission process can begin, the lead and member registrants need to identify themselves and the joint submission to which they belong to in REACH-
All co-registrants for the same substance are part of a cooperation group called a substance information exchange forum (SIEF), who have to share scientific data on the substance and register jointly.
IT. Remember also to check that the contact details of your company are up-to-date in REACH-IT. If you are a lead registrant, you will need to submit your registration dossier before the members can submit theirs. To give the member registrants sufficient time to submit before the May 31, 2018 deadline, you are advised to submit your dossier before April 2018. If you are a member registrant, be active in the substance information exchange forum (SIEF) and follow the progress of the joint part of the registration so that you know when the lead registrant submits their dossier. Whether you are submitting a IUCLID dossier, or using the ‘prepare and submit’ functionality in REACHIT, submitting your registration is easy. The REACH-IT submission wizard and the embedded help text will guide you through every step of the submission process.
After submission, ECHA will perform a series of checks on your dossier and will keep you informed every step of the way. Check your Tasks page in REACH-IT as you may be requested to perform additional tasks within a set timeframe. At this stage, these may include updating your dossier if the initial dossier fails one of ECHA’s checks, or you may be required to pay the registration fee. ECHA cannot accept late payments for registration fees, so it is very important that you pay the fee by the due date of the invoice. You will receive a registration number once your dossier has passed all of ECHA’s checks and the invoice for the registration fee has been paid.
7. Keep Your Registration Up-to-date ECHA may examine any registration to verify if the information submitted by registrants is compliant with the legal requirements. The selection for
compliance check is either random or concern-based (targeted). Registration under REACH is not just a one-time exercise and your legal obligations do not end after you receive a registration number. Up-to-date information is needed to ensure that chemicals are being used safely. You should update your registrations whenever new information becomes available. You should also check ECHA’s annual evaluation reports. By reading the reports and the recommendations, you can learn what are the most common shortcomings and avoid having the same problems in your own registrations. For example, you should check whether a harmonised classification and labelling has become available for your substance. New information may also come from your supply chain or when new members join the joint submission. Data sharing obligations also apply when new members join. Being proactive is not only good practice, but also a legal requirement. You need to keep your registrations up to date even after receiving the registration number. This will most likely avoid you being asked to update your dossiers.

If you are a lead registrant, you will need to submit your registration dossier before the members can submit theirs, so lead registrants are advised to submit your dossier before April 2018.

Highlighting Ireland’s Key Role in Global Life Sciences Benchmarking the development of the Biopharma sector in Ireland at IDA Ireland, we continually question where is the industry at now? What has been achieved? And where do we go next? What we in IDA wish to achieve is continued pre-eminence of Ireland in the biopharma and broader life sciences sectors. I am particularly interested in the growth and success of the biopharma sector and what is happening among the strong cohort of global companies that currently populate the island of Ireland, not just those based in Dublin or Cork but the many other growing regional clusters in Waterford, Athlone and Sligo.
Investing in the Building Blocks of Biologics The big story in this sector is the continued investment in biologics manufacturing facilities, both by new players and also through the expansion of existing sites. All of the top 10 global biopharma companies, by revenue, have international manufacturing activities in Ireland, with over €10 billion invested by them in the last decade and a continued run rate on investment of €1 billion per year. To its credit, Ireland has invested in the building blocks and supports for the sector, including research, skills and construction. In particular, investment in NIBRT to support the research and training of staff for all biopharma
IDA Ireland is working hard to achieve the continued pre-eminence of Ireland in the biopharma and broader life sciences sectors, writes Tommy Fanning, Head of Biopharmaceuticals & Food at IDA Ireland, who outlines what is required for our island to continue to play a strong role in future products and technologies. companies has been a real success story. Many companies have cited the Institute as a key influencer in their decision-making process when selecting Ireland over other international locations. In August 2016, the expert skills group within our Department of Business, Enterprise & Innovation produced a report on the skills needs of the biopharma sector until 2021. This report projected a need for an additional 8,500 employees across the sector, split between new hires and the replacement of existing positions. This report is now being actioned and implemented by BioPharmaChem Ireland, in conjunction with the regional skills officers across the country and collaborating with local educational institutions.
Benefits to the Wider Economy Extra investment in the broader Irish economy, namely in terms of construction jobs, consulting engineering and more local supply by Irish indigenous companies supported by our sister agency Enterprise Ireland (EI), has been a key component in the growth of the sector.
Most construction projects require hundreds of workers over a three or four year term to achieve completion and validation of a new facility. In response, EI launched a programme and created a team under the ‘Global Sourcing’ label, whereby, with the assistance of IDA Ireland, introductions are made to the procurement teams of key biopharma companies. In doing so, they are inviting local suppliers to bid for contracts, in addition to exploring longer term technology partnerships around the manufacture of next-generation products. This year saw Dublin bid for the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and while no decision has yet been taken, it has been a real opportunity for a whole of government working group, alongside a number of outside stakeholders, to truly understand the strong and positive attributes of Dublin for a major European agency. We have a very strong background in life sciences, IT and data analytics. Right now, Dublin and Ireland are in a strong growth phase due to the quality of skills available here and the strong ‘right first time’ regulatory culture that pervades all of our Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
Investment & Development companies both in biopharma and medical technologies.
The Role of the HPRA A key aspect of this has been the work of our Irish regulator, the HPRA. The HPRA has had a major role to play in the regulatory culture that exists in Ireland today. Its current openness to engaging with companies and related bodies to learn and to future scan on what challenges will arrive is a testament to a broader Irish attitude to take on the next generation of developments in biopharmaceuticals. Going forward, Ireland needs to develop a stronger understanding of what is required for our island to continue to play a strong role in future products and technologies. For example, 2017 has seen the first approval of a cell therapy product, using CarT technology to produce the first of what is projected to be a burgeoning new sector in the years to come. As it will be more targeted at individual patients, it will require a very different delivery platform, which might be hard to describe or classify as manufacturing. The proposal by NIBRT to Science Foundation Ireland (approved but not yet funded), ‘Biologic’, could create an opportunity for Ireland to reaffirm its status as an international location of choice for global life sciences companies.
Broadening Role in the Value Chain Ireland has a deep experience and skills base in manufacturing, but a trend that we see continuing in 2017 in particular, is a broadening of Ireland’s role in the wider value chain for biopharmaceuticals. This would entail moving backwards into clinical batch development and forwards into clinical stage IV of a product’s life cycle, where data analytics and digital platforms will play a much stronger role.

The role that data will play in the future will see it cover all elements, from clinical trials to digital factories to digital sales forces. This will require the skills which are already available to other sectors of our economy today working for companies such as Google, IBM or LinkedIn and will now be deployed by biopharma companies. We strive to maintain the global view that the Irish site is the centre of expertise and excellence in any global company and, therefore, the obvious choice for the launch of new products. Today, this has been a reality, and while there will always be challenges to Ireland’s continued success in the future, greater convergence across biopharma, medical technologies, IT, data analytics and industrial automation will help to elevate our importance among the biopharma and broader life sciences sectors in Ireland.

Biopharma Growth Continues at Pace NIBRT single use Centre of Excellence.
Over the last decade, the Irish biopharma sector has seen $8 billion in capital investment in new facilities, which represents close to the largest wave of investment in biopharma manufacturing anywhere in the globe. There was further good news for the Irish biopharma sector throughout 2017, with the announcement of several major investments, including: ● Merck & Co. investing €280m in their latest commitment to their Irish biomanufacturing sites; ● Janssen’s $350m expansion of their Ringaskiddy site; ● Regeneron’s announcement of 300 additional jobs in Limerick; ● SK Biotek’s acquisition of Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients manufacturing facility in Swords; ● Theravance Biopharma’s opening of a new corporate office and labs in Dublin. The National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) works with all stakeholders from industry, government and academia to support the development of the sector by providing bespoke training and research solutions in state-of-the-art facilities. NIBRT continued to have a very strong 2017, with
NIBRT continued to have a very strong 2017, with a number of significant developments across its research, training and facility development operations, writes Killian O’Driscoll, NIBRT’s Director of Projects, who also points to a number of important projects for 2018.
a number of significant developments across its research, training and facility development operations.
Research Collaborations Pfizer and NIBRT commenced a new collaboration, focused on the development and application of advanced process and analytical methods for inline monitoring and continuous characterisation of bio-pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. The collaboration aims to reduce the requirement for offline analytical testing by integrating automated sampling and analytical characterisation, using high resolution liquid chromatography mass spectrometry directly with the bioreactor systems. The system will generate
both process and product quality data in near real time, to provide process and analytical scientists with key information to guide development of their bio-pharmaceutical processes. Speaking on behalf of Pfizer, Brian Fitzpatrick, Senior Director, Bio Aseptic Sciences Group, explained, “Pfizer are excited to collaborate with Dr Jonathan Bones, Dr Colin Clarke and their teams at NIBRT to develop and apply more automated process and analytical characterisation platforms for the near real time analysis of bio-pharmaceuticals during the manufacturing process. The range of information we can get from such integrated systems will be a real step forward and can really help us to develop a much greater understanding of our Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
NIBRT manufacturing processes and their influence on the characteristics of our products.” The science-based technology company 3M also began a collaborative research project with NIBRT. The first study, which is currently underway, is examining the effect of chromatographic clarification on host cell DNA, and the specific type and quantity of host cell proteins removed prior to downstream processing. NIBRT’s research team was further strengthened with the appointment of Professor Niall Barron as NIBRT Principal Investigator and Professor of Biochemical Engineering in the School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering in UCD. Prof. Barron’s research interests focus on targeted genetic engineering strategies to improve or control the production of recombinant therapeutic proteins from Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells. Prior to joining NIBRT, Niall was instrumental in growing the mammalian cell engineering group in National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology (NICB), with a specific focus on the production of recombinant therapeutic proteins.
Facility Development June 2017 saw the official opening, of the NIBRTGE Single-Use Centre of Excellence, featuring the latest single use technologies that will further boost biomanufacturing skills and expertise in Ireland, Europe and globally. The new centre also supports the GE BioPark Cork, a GE-managed campus including four prefabricated, off-theshelf biologics factories owned by independent biopharma companies manufacturing proprietary medicines, creating up to 500 jobs. Commenting on the opening, David Radspinner, General Manager, BioPark, GE Healthcare, stated, “The biopharma industry is growing rapidly; of the top 10 therapeutics on the market today, eight are biopharmaceuticals. Our customers are constantly looking for flexible ways to improve capacity and the efficiency of their manufacturing operations. We need to foster innovation and partner with the best to respond to this need: with the NIBRT partnership and GE BioPark Cork, we are doing exactly this.” Building on the successful partnership, NIBRT was delighted to open the Thermo Scientific biopharma characterisation lab, where NIBRT will develop workflows on the Thermo Scientific biomolecule column range, with its associated consumable portfolio, in conjunction with sophisticated Thermo Scientific liquid chromatography systems and advanced Thermo Scientific Orbitrap high resolution mass spectrometers. “Analytical characterisation of biopharmaceuticals remains a challenge for scientists and requires cutting edge chromatography solutions and mass spectrometry detection,”commented Jakob Gudbrand, President of Chromatography and Analytical Technologies at Thermo Fisher. “NIBRT is an independent centre of excellence with collaborations across the major biopharmaceutical companies in the industry. Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
NIBRT and Pfizer teams pictured at the announcement of their collaboration.
This allows them to provide valuable insights to improve the technology, simplify analysis, generate informative characterisation data and understand these complex molecules, ultimately enabling scientists to move from sample to knowledge quickly and efficiently.”
Training 4,000+ 2017 was one of NIBRT’s busiest training years, with over 4,000 people trained and close to 19,000 days of training delivered. The diverse portfolio of training ranged from one-day introductory courses to bespoke courses for Industry and online Masters programmes, with particular highlights including: ● Springboard courses, which provided approximately 400 jobseekers with free, accredited training programmes. In an exciting development from 2017 onwards, Springboard courses are now also available for those in employment who wish to upskill. ●
support clients who are developing biopharma manufacturing capacity. In particular, NIBRT was delighted to partner with Bristol Myers Squibb as they developed their $900m Cruiserath facility for the manufacture of immuno-oncology products. ● Delivery of training to international clients, which accounts for approximately 25% of NIBRT’s training. For example, NIBRT was pleased to further partner with AbbVie to provide training to global Health Care Practitioners and Key Opinion Leaders. Partnering with 14 Higher Education Institutes and Institutes of Technology to provide undergraduate training programmes to ensure the supply of skilled graduates throughout all regions.
The Next Generation of Biopharma Talent A key component of NIBRT’s remit is to help develop the next generation of biopharma talent, with a number of exciting initiatives

launched in 2017, including: Collaboration with Citywise ‘Biotechies’ programmes, which provides young people growing up in difficult or hostile city environments with after-school and out-of-school educational support. Citywise’s educational programmes raise the sights of young people, giving them an enthusiasm for learning and opening up possibilities for further education. ● Amgen’s School of Biotech Excellence (ABE), which is an innovative science education programme that empowers teachers to bring biotechnology into their classrooms. ABE Ireland offers training in molecular biology experiments for secondary school teachers at locations in University College Dublin, Dublin City University and NIBRT. ● The launch of NIBRT’s Biopharmaceutical Science Transition Year Competition. The very popular competition invites transition year students to submit an essay focusing on the biopharma sector in Ireland. The successful students will then receive a one week structured placement in NIBRT, where they will have the opportunity to experience the state-of-the-art facilities and learn from scientists working in the research and training team. ● NIBRT’s Annual Careers Day and Biotech Cluster at CareerZoo continue to be very popular events to connect the industry with high quality prospective employees. ●
Awards The ongoing success of NIBRT was reflected in a number of prestigious national and international awards in 2017, including: ● Dr Colin Clarke won the Young Leader of the Year award at the Irish Lab Awards; ● Professor Pauline Rudd and Dr Jonathan Bones were both recognised within the Medicine Maker’s Top 100 Power List; ● NIBRT was shortlisted for the CPHI bioprocessing award; ● NIBRT and GE won the Collaboration of the Year Award at the Irish Pharma Awards.
What’s Next? Biopharma continues to develop at a rapid pace and in NIBRT’s annual survey, 69% of respondents indicated they are “highly optimistic” for the future growth of the sector. While current investment is focused mainly on CHO based production of monoclonal antibodies, it’s clear that there is an exciting diversification in product pipelines. Most notably in 2017 was the breakthrough in CAR-T
cancer therapy with FDA approval for Novartis and Gilead. These therapies combine aspects of personalised medicine, cell and gene therapy to provide a new frontier in cancer treatment, while posing many manufacturing and supply chain challenges. The underlying manufacturing technologies are also constantly evolving, with a lot of debate in 2017 on “Industry 4.0” and the impact of digitisation, automation, robotics and related technologies on manufacturing strategies. In 2018, NIBRT will be launching its Online Academy to assist the sector in keeping current with this fast-paced change. Also in February 2018, the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association and BioPharmaChem Ireland, representing the research based and manufacturing biopharmaceutical industries respectively, together with NIBRT, will host BioPharma Ambition, a multi-platform event to inspire and showcase innovation. With international policy leaders, renowned researchers and senior industry personnel, the event will highlight the ambition of the industry for the health and well-being of populations. It will also highlight where the research is pointing and how all stakeholders in Ireland will support innovation in discovery, development, manufacturing and healthcare solutions to ensure Ireland builds on its success in establishing a thriving biopharma sector.

Data Integrity Enda Dempsey, BioPharmaChem Ireland, provides some industry insights for improving Data Integrity compliance in an increasingly regulated environment. The concept of Data Integrity (DI) is not new to the industry but it is still one of the most cited causes for non-compliance. In 2015, 35% of all the EU Statements of Non Compliance were related to DI, while last year it featured in 37 out 46 FDA warning letters (excluding compounding pharmacies). At its core, DI is “the extent to which all data are complete, consistent and accurate, throughout the data lifecycle” – PIC/S. The basic principles for DI, ALCOA, centre on the generation and quality of the information. In recent years though, this has been expanded to include four new parameters; Complete, Consistent, Enduring and Available, so that the process and management oversights are also covered. This has increased the pressure on companies to develop a robust data governance model, which can be flexible enough to implement new recommendations from guidelines or regulations, create a consistent culture of
awareness across the entire organisation, and have enough expertise within the workforce to tackle the more pernicious technical challenges that arise. Despite the wealth of information already available from numerous influential healthcare organisations, the regulatory authorities themselves, specifically the FDA, MHRA, EMA and WHO, have demonstrated unprecedented activity covering this topic by releasing at least seven major publications since March 2015, each with more granular detail. This just reflects the scale and complexity of the topic.

Serialisation of Medicines Adding to the burden, serialisation of medicines to prevent counterfeiting is being rolled out in different instances globally; the Falsified Medicine Directive (FMD) in Europe, the Drug Supply Chain Security Act in the US and the federal repository and tracking system FGIS MDLP in Russia, to name but a few. This will
Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
Data Integrity yield several terabytes of extra data per product that will have to be managed, plus the not insubstantial costs for updating manufacturing lines and in Europe, paying for repository costs (approximately €15,000 annually per product per country). The FMD further complicates the system by requiring the unique, randomised code being assigned to a pack. This in effect means that each pack is its own batch and that will impact on the reconciliation process all the way through the supply chain, until the pack is eventually sold. Therefore, the need for companies to have a tractable, reliable and accurate data governance model is greater than ever. Most, if not all, pharmaceutical companies are actively strengthening their data integrity systems to improve their drug quality and ultimately increase patient safety. While there are no off-the-shelf solutions to develop a DI culture, several companies have previously shared some of their strategies for getting started.
The Steps to Good Data Governance As a first step, it was recommended to establish a dedicated Data Governance Committee that includes a broad spectrum of roles and seniority within the company; ideally senior leadership plus managers or SMEs from quality, manufacturing and the laboratory divisions. The group should establish a charter outlining their site improvement plan, specific roles and responsibilities within the group, a progress tracker and some aspirational goals or milestones to aim for. The group should review training initiatives, site communications, set up projects to identify DI gaps and participate in informal process inspections e.g. Gemba walks. This is important as it demonstrates that there is a real interest in the programme locally as opposed to be pushed out from a corporate level only. The Gemba walks for the committee help improve their general knowledge of the site, particularly what is working well and what isn’t. However, it is critical that it’s not used as an informal audit. The DI gap analysis should be done by the divisions that are involved in the process rather than relying on the Data Governance team, although they would need the findings relayed to them.
Utilise Multiple Communication Tools To maintain awareness and change employee behaviour, it is worth utilising multiple different communication tools, such as newsletters, crossword campaigns and posters. Tackling quality control and production areas tend to be easiest as these sections are already quite structured. To increase responses from the employees, anonymous suggestion boxes and Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
rewards are typically given. These are usually small monetary prizes but in at least one case, an extra day’s leave was offered and this prompted a huge response. To foster a culture of awareness and engagement, the focus should be on the problems, not the person. Also, Human Error is attributed to 36% of all deviations but retraining is the appropriate CAPA for only 6% of the time, the other 94% of errors will not be solved or prevented by retraining, making it even more important not to blame the employee. Sometimes errors are the result of forms being too complex or easily confused. A good example of this is the different calendar formats the EU and US use, which is an issue when recording raw material expiry dates. There is a CAPA ranking table – Level 1 is complete prevention of an incident taking place but level 4 is the lowest strategy for preventing an error and one that is still commonly used throughout the industry. 1) Automate – No human so highest level of prevention; 2) Prevent – Resist access or extra safety feature;
3) Detect and recover – Determine fault and stop it before it causes any damage;
4) Duplication – Second review/second signature. Companies should use a system to rate their DI maturity level. The ISPE GAMP guidelines utilises a Red, Amber and Green (RAG) system, which is based on a checklist they have developed. This would allow a company to track their performance but also identify gaps in their journey. Finally, implementing a successful DI programme requires several years for it to be embedded properly. Therefore, it is crucial that if there is a change of leadership, the programme is still retained or else the entire concept of being on a DI journey could falter.
New DI Issues Even with a robust data governance model deeply ingrained into the quality management system, new DI issues are constantly arising which auditors are picking up on. Some citations were issued to companies who did not change the default passwords on their validated equipment, e.g. a HPLC machine, which would theoretically allow an operator to bypass the controls systems and then manipulate their own data. This is also a problem with field engineers from the equipment vendor, who may be able to override all the security settings by plugging in their own laptop. As a result, several companies prevent external, nonvalidated computers or even USB keys onto their site. There is also a risk that these devices
Data Integrity An analysis of FDA warning letters on data governance and data integrity (Source: www.pharmaceuticalonline.com).
harbour malicious software. Other unique problems centre around data retention, which can be as long as 15-20 years. If the contract lab is liquidated in that time, then the data will be sent back to the customer but they will not have the instrument to read it. Alternatively, due to obsolesces of programmes, e.g. MS Dos or equipment upgrades, some data may no longer be readable or may become corrupt over time. Most companies are considering implementing cloud based systems but that would still leave a significant amount of old data at risk. Digitalising old data so it becomes readable in the future is also fraught with difficulties, as you create the ‘True Copy’ issue. This is case whereby a ‘certified’ true copy is both electronically time stamped and has the necessary metadata surrounding it. A typical example would arise when a CMO is producing data for a MAH. If either partner makes an alteration on their document, there is a DI breach as they would both have a ‘certified’ true copy. Blockchain technology or using a shared cloud platform will probably help mitigate this risk, although it does demonstrate how unintentionally complex this topic can become. Even though the concept and regulations for Data Integrity have been around for several decades, it is still very much a hot topic for the industry. Changes in regulations and technology create and solve new issues constantly. However, there has been a global trend of fewer defects and counterfeit medicines getting onto the market, which ultimately means safer drugs for the end-user.

An Industry Benchmark
GS1 Ireland and ESP team up to produce the second annual Pharma Serialisation Readiness Report. How do you measure up?
With the EU FMD deadline just over a year away, the challenge of serialisation is a top priority for pharmaceutical companies. Many stakeholders in the pharmaceutical supply chain are wondering if they are doing enough to meet the deadline. GS1 Ireland and Enterprise System Partners (ESP) have teamed up to produce the second annual Pharma Serialisation Industry Readiness Report. This year’s report focuses on the industry’s ongoing efforts to meet the EU FMD deadline, and includes expert analysis from ESP and GS1 Ireland. Rather than simply read the report, it is recommended that industry stakeholders use it as a tool with which to benchmark their own progress. This may provide the reader with reassurance that they are not behind the curve, as many companies appear to have a lot left to do. It will also highlight areas requiring action which may not have become apparent yet. We have chosen three key questions to focus on within this article. If you would like to read the full report, visit https://www.gs1ie.org/ healthcare/serialisation-report.
Survey Composition The report draws from the results of a survey issued to key industry stakeholders between May and July 2017. The majority of the respondents were pharmaceutical manufacturers (65%), contract manufacturers (11%), and virtual pharmaceutical companies (8%). Third-party logistics providers (5%) and wholesale distributor re-packagers (6%) made up the balance. 91% of respondents were Marketing Authorisation Holders. So how do you rate your overall readiness for EU FMD?
This year’s survey indicates that progress is being made in preparing for the EU FMD deadline. With under a year and a half to go, these results are as one would expect.
Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
Serialisation ensure the requirements of the regulation are complied with. If you, like 56% of respondents, do not have a company-wide education programme relating to serialisation, there is still time to start. Firstly, identify the staff that need to have at least a basic understanding of what is involved in serialisation. Develop a foundational programme that is more business and regulatory focused. From there, facilitate a more technically advanced learning path for those who require it. GS1 Ireland and ESP are available to help with any training requirements that may arise. Are you ready to leverage value beyond compliance?
Serialisation is a work in progress for 78% of companies surveyed, while only 7% of respondents felt ready for the deadline. 15% have yet to start their serialisation efforts. If your serialisation preparations are running into obstacles, you may find comfort in knowing that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone. 15% of respondents reported having issues with their implementation.
What are the Principal Concerns? What are your principal concerns in meeting your obligations? Preparations for serialisation are complex, and resource intensive. Several concerns were highlighted by the survey. 59% of respondents identified resource availability as a serious issue for them. (See graph above). With serialisation, getting the packaging lines EU FMD compliant is only the start of the journey. A variety of proficiencies and systems are necessary to meet the requirements for packaging lines and these can be accessed by experts such as ESP.
Changing the Way Companies Do Business Is there a Company-Wide Education Programme to support your Serialisation Strategy?
However, there is a scarcity in the skills required to manage and execute activities supporting the readiness of the downstream supply chain. Experience shows that practically all Market Authorisation Holders significantly underestimate the complexity and volume of work required to make their downstream supply chain EU FMD compliant. Therefore, it is expected that in the run-up to the February 2019 deadline, availability of these highly skilled resources will become even more of a constraint. 44% of respondents reported issues with uncertainty surrounding regulations. This regulatory uncertainty is derived from the legislative complexity of the EU FMD, which is compounded by the need to consider individual EU market nuances during serialisation implementations. GS1 has a global policy forum which tracks developments in market legislation. To find out more, please contact email@example.com. Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
The Critical Driver As one would expect, the critical driver for most companies implementing serialisation is regulatory compliance. The deadline for the EU FMD is fast approaching and compliance has to be the number one priority. However, additional benefits can be leveraged from serialisation. These range from improving patient safety to increasing brand protection. Industry 4.0 visibility and the order-to-cash process can also be enhanced. Underlying infrastructure and mechanisms are needed to realise value beyond compliance. These systems are enabled by the use of GS1 standards, such as EPCIS & GS1 identification keys.
Complete your own industry benchmark
The EU FMD will change the way companies do business. A host of business units within the company, from regulatory, to packaging, to engineering, need to be involved to

Clinical Research Development Ireland Investment & Development Pictured at the launch of Clinical Research Development Ireland in October 2017 are (l-r): Dr Pat O’Mahony, Chief Executive of CRDI; Simon Harris TD, Minister for Health; and Thomas Lynch, Chairman of CRDI.
A Force for Clinical Research Dr Fionnuala Keane, Chief Operating Officer, HRB CRCI, reports on the Strategic Plan 2017-2021 of Clinical Research Development Ireland, formerly known as Molecular Medicine Ireland, and the important work of the Health Research Board Clinical Research Coordination Ireland. In October 2017, Molecular Medicine Ireland rebranded as Clinical Research Development Ireland and launched its new Strategic Plan 2017-2021, with a clear vision and focus on the development of clinical and translational research in Ireland. CRDI is a not-for-profit research partnership comprising NUI Galway, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork and University College Dublin, their medical schools, associated academic hospitals and clinical research facilities, with the objective of accelerating the translation of biomedical research into improved diagnostics, therapies and devices for patients. CRDI builds on the achievements of Molecular Medicine Ireland, which was established in 2008 by the five aforementioned universities, together with its predecessor, the Dublin Molecular Medicine Centre (DMMC), a partnership initiated by UCD and Trinity College Dublin in 2002, with the inclusion of Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 2005.
Evidence-Based Patient Care The strategic vision for CRDI is to be an effective and innovative force for the development of clinical and translational research in Ireland, and to be recognised both nationally and internationally as a model of organisational excellence, focused
on advancing evidence-based patient care and network coordination. The mission of CRDI is to advance patient care and health service delivery by supporting the development of clinical and translational research across its partner academic institutions, their medical schools and associated hospitals. CRDI acts as the host institution for a number of programmes, which enables it to deliver on its vision and mission. Since 2002, CRDI and its partner institutions have succeeded in winning funding from Enterprise Ireland, EU FP6 & 7, Higher Education Authority PRTLI Cycles 1-5, Health Research Board, Health Service Executive, Irish Cancer Society/Movember, Science Foundation Ireland and the Wellcome Trust, for cross-institutional initiatives, such as; the Clinician Scientist Fellowship Programme and Clinical and Translational Research Scholars PhD programmes, Irish Clinical Research Infrastructure Network, Dublin Centre for Clinical Research, iPROSPECT and IPCOR prostate cancer research programmes, HRB Clinical Research Co-ordination Ireland, CURAM (SFI Centre for Research in Medical Devices) and the Irish Clinical Academic Training (ICAT) programme.
CRDI Strategic Plan The CRDI Strategic Plan set outs six clear goals, as follows:
Advance the development of a sophisticated, coordinated clinical and translational research partnership across our partner academic institutions, their medical schools and associated hospitals; ● Develop and support clinical and translational research infrastructure and delivery; ● Develop and support clinical trials delivery; ● Develop and support education and training; ● Develop capability across network partners and CRDI; ● Advocate for adequate funding for the development of clinical and translational research. Success on the delivery of the ambitious agenda of the CRDI Strategic plan will require the combined efforts of all stakeholders. For further information on CRDI, please visit www.crdi.ie.
HRB CRCI: Dedicated to Clinical Trials An important programme within CRDI is the Health Research Board Clinical Research Coordination Ireland (HRB CRCI), which is dedicated to the delivery of clinical trials in Ireland. HRB CRCI is an independent integrated national clinical research network, providing centralised support in the conduct of multicentre clinical trials (both commercial and academic) across Ireland. It is funded by extramural grants from the Health Research Board (HRB) and Enterprise Ireland (EI), supported by the five largest Irish Universities, and is hosted by Clinical Research Development Ireland (CRDI). In 2014, the Directors of five University Clinical Research Facilities/Centres (CRF/Cs) responded to a HRB and EI invitation to submit a proposal for the development of a network to support the Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
Clinical Research Development Ireland conduct of multicentre clinical trials across the island of Ireland. The application was successful, and led to the establishment of HRB CRCI as a collaborative partnership of the five university based CRF/Cs and their associated hospitals. HRB CRCI subsequently became operational as an organisation in May 2015.
Overarching Support and Expertise The HRB CRCI central office provides overarching support and expertise, through a range of services and activities to academia and industry. CRDI provides corporate support services to the central office. The partner CRF/Cs provide the infrastructure, physical space and facilities, experienced research and specialist support staff and the necessary quality and oversight programmes that are critical for the successful conduct of world-class patient-focused research. HRB CRCI and the CRF/Cs facilitate research but are not in a position to independently fund research. Our partner CRF/Cs have over 40 years of combined research experience and include: ● HRB CRF Cork at University College Cork and Mercy University Hospital; ● HRB CRF Galway at University Hospital Galway; ● Royal College of Surgeons Ireland CRC at Beaumont Hospital; ● University College Dublin CRCs at Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and St. Vincent’s University Hospital; ● Wellcome Trust – HRB CRF at St. James’s Hospital; ● The National Children’s Research Centre, Crumlin. The key aims of HRB CRCI are as follows: 1. To enhance Ireland’s capacity for conducting innovative high quality clinical research for the benefit of people’s health and the economy; 2. To advance the care of patients by enabling a connected and coordinated Clinical Trial Network; 3. To provide the skills, expertise and infrastructure to design, conduct and analyse multi-centre clinical trials involving human participants in Ireland;
Pictured at the launch of HRB Clinical Research Development Ireland (HRB CRCI) in Sept 2016 are members of the Senior Management Team and the then Minister for Health Promotion, Marcella Corcoran Kennedy TD: (l-r): Professor Dermot Kenny, Director, RCSI Clinical Research Centre; Dr Peter Doran, Director, UCD Clinical Research Centre; Dr Fionnuala Keane, HRB CRCI Chief Operating Officer; Professor Joe Eustace, HRB CRCI Chair & Director HRB Clinical Research Facility at UCC; Marcella Corcoran Kennedy TD, former Minister of State for Health Promotion; and Professor Michael Gill, Director, Wellcome Trust HRB Clinical Research Facility, St James’s Hospital. 4. To support both academic and industry initiated clinical trials involving pharmaceuticals, neutraceuticals or clinical care pathways, as well as clinical investigation of medical devices. HRB CRCI is involved in a range of activities to support all aspects of clinical research and offers services to academia and industry. One such service is the HRB CRCI National Study Feasibility Programme. Study feasibility is a process through which a clinical trial sponsor or representative (e.g. Clinical Research Organisations) identifies potential investigator sites and evaluates if they are suitable to conduct the clinical trial. HRB CRCI provides a service to streamline the clinical trial investigator site identification and study feasibility process nationally, delivering consistency and efficiency in the process. Its study feasibility service is free of charge and aims to secure more research opportunities for Irish patients and to ensure that Ireland is recognised internationally as a preferred location for clinical trials.
Connecting Sponsors with Potential Investigators The HRB CRCI National Study Feasibility Programme connects academic and industry sponsors with potential investigators. HRB CRCI acts as the channel through which study feasibility assessments can be distributed and completed efficiently. The HRB CRCI Investigator Membership Database and Clinical Research Facility/Centre (CRF/C) network is utilised to significantly reduce the time taken to identify investigator sites and to assess study feasibility. The programme is actively managed by the Clinical Trial Liaison Officer with an aim to feedback to the source within two weeks of initial receipt of a feasibility request. Dedicated CRCI staff based in each CRF/C support investigators with the rapid and accurate completion of the feasibility assessment and timely delivery of study start-up and first patient first visit (FPFV). For more information on HRB CRCI, please go to www.HRB-CRCI.ie or to contact the HRB CRCI Feasibility Service directly, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Indaver to Succeed Ruth Appelbe, Industrial Waste Services Sales Manager Ireland, Indaver, with Aidan Kennedy, Waste to Energy Plant Manager. A privately owned company headquartered in Belgium, Indaver has a turnover of €500k, thus making it one of the largest waste management companies in Europe. Since their Duleek plant opened eight years ago, Indaver have revolutionised waste management in Ireland. Duleek incinerates over 200,000 tonnes of waste annually, which is then converted to supply 20,000 households with electricity. Curiously, over 2,600 people have visited the site. Furthermore, the company has donated €1.7m to local projects as a planning condition donation.
With this track record, Indaver are planning on opening another facility in Cork, explains Ruth Appelbe, Industrial Waste Services Sales Manager Ireland at Indaver. They are also currently involved in the development of waste-to-energy facilities in Belfast.
Sustainable Waste Management According to Appelbe, waste-to-energy can help achieve the EU’s aim of improving resource efficiency: “In order to achieve sustainable waste management, waste should be diverted from landfills and recycled as much as possible, with the remaining waste
(i.e. waste not suitable for recycling) used to generate energy. Recycling and waste-toenergy are complementary options to divert waste from landfills. This helps the EU to reach a circular economy.” As part of their commitment to Ireland, Indaver have made a considerable amount of capital investment. “We have invested heavily in Ireland,” Appelbe explains. “For example, Dublin Port has a €15m capital investment, which is a significant investment in hazardous infrastructure. Also, the Meath waste-to-energy facility was an investment of over €140m.” The Meath facility represented the largest ever single investment in solid waste management infrastructure in Ireland at that time. It also reflects the technology being deployed. “It’s more efficient,” Appelbe reveals. “We recover more energy and materials and it has a lower impact on people, the environment and society.” Indaver have a strong Quality, Environment, Safety and Health (QESH) culture and are ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified. According to Appelbe, the current trend within the industry is to harness as much energy as possible. With this in mind, they ensure that their plant designs produce as much electricity as they can and harness as much heat as possible.

SSPC Research Centre Driving Innovation Through Partnerships The Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC) is a hub of Irish research expertise, comprising nine Research Performing Organisations (RPOs), 24 industry partners and 12 international academic collaborators. Their mission is to position Ireland as a global hub of pharmaceutical process innovation and advanced manufacturing. SSPC supports the research projects of 60 postgraduate students, each of whom is enrolled on their award winning structured PhD Programme, and 43 post- doctoral fellows. A significant focus of the graduate and post-doctoral fellowship programmes is to prepare the researchers for successful careers in industry and 46% of SSPC trainees take up employment in industry following departure from the Centre. Their industry partners benefitted in many ways from SSPC research activities, including the development of scientific and technological advances, a shift in emphasis for the Irish sites within their corporations, and advanced education and training of company employees. In addition, the academic institutions have invested heavily in new appointments that enables seamless succession planning for the Centre.
Partnerships The Centre has undertaken significant Irish PharmaChem | Industry Buyers Guide 2018
The Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC) is a world leading Science Foundation Ireland Centre co-funded with industry partners, and focuses on excellent science across chemistry, pharmaceutics and process engineering. partnership activities that have contributed to business growth. For example, a national working group called (bio)Pharma Ireland, formed to highlight the importance of innovation in pharmaceutical manufacturing in Europe. The (bio)Pharma Ireland working group, chaired by SSPC, has representation from the pharmaceutical industry, BioPharma Chemical Ireland (BPCI), government agencies like Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and the IDA; and academic research organisations: National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT) and the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Technology Centre (PMTC). Through SSPC leadership, (bio)Pharma Ireland led the development of a white paper, with input from other European participants, which will contribute to and influence European policy-making for this sector. One outcome of the seminar has been that a number of MEPs, including Paul Ruebig (Austria), have agreed to table an amendment on the European Parliament’s discharge report in respect of the European Medicines Agency for 2017. The proposed amendment, based on the (bio)Pharma Ireland White Paper,
will recognise the need for innovation in pharmaceutical manufacturing in the EU and for the enabling regulatory environment to allow this to take place. SSPC is also part of the first ever US-Ireland Centre-to-Centre Partnership Programme in continuous manufacturing for nanobased drug products. This partnership links together three of the world’s major pharmaceutical manufacturing and drug delivery research centres, including The Centre for Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPS) at Queen’s University Belfast and The Centre for Structured Organic Particulate Systems (CSOPS), as well as SSPC. The benefit is associated with the complementarity of expertise and equipment between the three centres. The team in CPS bring a pharmacy insight to the work, whereas the CSOPS colleagues bring expertise in the area of continuous manufacturing, with a strong emphasis on process analytical technology, modelling and control strategies. SSPC is continuing to engage with global pharma companies at a corporate level, as evidenced strongly in the MOMEnTUM SPOKE project. SSPC researchers are delivering significant value to J&J by developing next
Research & Development generation manufacturing technologies, while being afforded the opportunity to work on proprietary company background IP. This level of interest from corporate R&D highlights the value of SSPC research to the company and the potential for its commercial impact.
Award Winning Research 2017 proved to be a very successful year for SSPC. This year, SSPC were named winners for Excellence in Education and Training at the HR Leadership and Management Awards 2017 for the SSPC Structured PhD programme. SSPC Co-Director, Professor Gavin Walker won three awards at the Irish Laboratory Awards for The Bernal Process Engineering Laboratory based in SSPC operations headquarters in the University of Limerick. The Centre was awarded Research Centre of the Year at the Pharma Industry Awards 2017. At the Science Foundation Ireland Summit 2017, the Advanced Biopharmaceutical Technologies Spokes Project won Industry Partnership Alliance. This is a project that bring together seven of the leading biopharmaceutical companies in Ireland, Pfizer, Allergan, Eli Lilly, Janssen, Merck, Biomarin and Genzyme, working in collaboration with The National Institute for Bioprocessing Resarch and Training (NIBRT). It’s a link that places Ireland in a unique position globally where there is real industryacademic collaboration across small and large molecule research and innovation. Benchmarking exercises carried out would indicate that other international Centres focus almost entirely on the small molecule. SSPC Co-Director, Professor Michael Zaworotko was honoured with the accolade of SFI Researcher of the Year 2017.
Leadership SSPC supports 10 Principal Investigators, 21 Funded Investigators, including four Spoke Leaders and 13 Collaborators, each

Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Technology Centre manufacturing times and improve product defects, by the integrated manufacturing approach, and move Irish operations up the ‘value chain’ to create a global hub for innovative manufacturing. Moreover, the projects will improve process efficiencies and lead to ‘greener’, more environmentally sustainable routes to drug product manufacture, by eliminating several unit operations, thus creating novel hybrid processes.
Innovation in Cleaning Technology One of the PMTC’s main focus areas is on innovation in the field of cleaning technology, and the creation of cleaning innovation programmes for the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. Additionally, the PMTC has programmes researching enabling of continuous processing, powder processing and the development of soft sensors. PMTC aims to create an environment to support all manufacturing challenges. PMTC continues to position itself to enable the pharmaceutical industry to respond to macroeconomic challenges. At a global level, manufacturing facilities must become flexible. Emerging markets pose unique challenges that require flexible approaches to achieve patient benefits. To achieve these desired outcomes, medicines are becoming personalised and stratified, which will require a paradigm shift in manufacturing. A central strategy of the PMTC is to leverage state investment to create larger projects with significant industrial impact. One of the central approaches to this is to access the Innovation Partnership Programme managed by Enterprise Ireland. An area of recent focus has investigated efforts to improve cleaning processes in the industry, and contribute to network competitiveness in areas such as product-toproduct changeover. The research will lead to increased cost savings, and will ensure improved effectiveness in the biopharmaceutical industry, helping to secure jobs.
Innovation Programme The PMTC recently received €1.3m to resource an innovation programme between four multinational pharma companies based in Ireland, including Pfizer. This was recently reported in the press (https://www. siliconrepublic.com/innovation/ul-pharmapharmaceutical-manufacturing-technologycentre).

Kuehne + Nagel Lead The Way Innovation and future focused solutions are critical to Kuehne + Nagel. Their strategy pays particular attention to this by analysing customers’ supply chain as a whole and improving efficiency and cost. “Ireland is one of the leading locations for the pharmaceutical industry in the world and accounts for just over half of Ireland’s goods exports, circa €64 billion,” states Adam O’Sullivan, Director of Pharmaceutical + Healthcare, Kuehne + Nagel Ireland. “This means that logistics companies need to stay innovative to keep up: Kuehne + Nagel are leading the way in the transportation of pharmaceutical goods in Ireland. We work closely with our customers to stay abreast of the ever-changing needs of this industry to ensure we can offer sustainable and compliant solutions.” Kuehne + Nagel has developed an innovative approach to pharmaceutical and healthcare logistics by adopting a lifecycle view of the supply chain, he explains: “This allows us to customise our services, ensuring that different capabilities are deployed to suit different stages of development, production, and distribution. Moreover, we have a dedicated team who can analyse the risks and offset those risks in advance of a shipment moving through our network with the use of technology.”
Impressive Accreditation In today’s strict regulatory environment, there is certainly no shortage of regulations that pertain directly to the pharmaceutical industry. “Quality is of utmost importance at Kuehne + Nagel and we have integrated high standards of quality into the heart of the operation of our business. In February 2017, our global KN PharmaChain airfreight network was certified by the International Air Transport Association as CEIV Pharma (Centre of Excellence for Independent Validators in Pharmaceutical Logistics), being the first logistics provider to receive this accreditation for the entire network. “Locally here in Kuehne + Nagel Ireland, we go beyond just the industry standards of quality,” O’Sullivan continues. “We actively invite our customers to perform their own audits at our premises, allowing them to inspect our quality standards and procedures first hand.”
The company continually invests in new technology and innovations and is in the process of building a brand new state-of-the-art 60,000 square feet warehousing facility, which will offer both temperature controlled storage (15-25°C) and chilled storage (2-8°C), which will be scalable to suit customer needs.
Complex Supply Chain Within the logistics industry, the transportation of goods often exchanges several hands as it will regularly have to travel through multiple countries and be handled by different carriers along the way. It is this complex supply chain that creates complications in the area of security, visibility and industry regulations for logistics companies when offering solutions to their customers. “It is critical for pharmaceutical
products in particular to arrive at their intended destination in the same condition as they were shipped,” O’Sullivan explains. “Of equal importance is the visibility of this vital cargo. In order for our customers to be able to stand over their product, they need to know where it has been on each leg of its journey, so traceability at every contact point is fundamental.” It’s this added value that allows Kuehne + Nagel to offer solutions to their customers that they don’t even know they need or want yet. “We are bucking the trends of the industry by being the first to market with intelligent supply-chain solutions for Irish companies,” concludes O’Sullivan. “It’s through this expertise that Kuehne + Nagel play their part in ensuring that Irish companies continue to have their competitive edge in this market.” For more information, contact Adam O’Sullivan, Director Pharma + Healthcare, Kuehne + Nagel Ireland.

Employee Wellbeing a Top Priority for Employers and Employees Alike Research conducted by Ibec earlier this year among 1,000 employees found that six out of 10 employees are more likely to stay longterm with an employer who shows an interest in their health and wellbeing. It also found that nearly half of those surveyed would leave a job where they perceive an employer not to care about their wellbeing. This data further cements what we already know about the importance of investment in, and a strategic approach to, employee wellbeing.
Evidence Based Accreditation The KeepWell Mark is an evidence-based accreditation and award from Ibec, designed to recognise and celebrate the fantastic work that organisations all over Ireland are doing to look after the health and wellbeing of their people. It offers a structured, allencompassing approach to corporate wellbeing and is the first national set of
The KeepWell Mark is an evidence-based accreditation and award from Ibec, designed to recognise and celebrate the impressive work carried out by organisations to look after the health and wellbeing of their staff, writes Sophie Moran, Executive, Food Drink Ireland, Ibec. standards and formal accreditation focusing solely on the health and wellness of staff, and it’s backed by business. Aoife Ní Mhurchú, Head of HR for Sky Ireland, one of the first KeepWell accredited companies in Ireland, commented, “Workplace wellness is a key foundation of our people engagement strategy and The KeepWell Mark will help Sky Ireland maintain the focus on wellbeing going forward which is good for our people and good for our business.”
A Key HR Tool The accreditation is designed to act as a key tool for your HR and management team, identifying the strengths and weaknesses in
your existing approach, and mapping out the way forward, all in line with a national set of standards for best practice. In the recently published Ibec Autumn 2017 HR survey update, three in five respondents rated employee wellbeing as ‘very important’ in their organisation, with 55% highlighting investment in employee wellbeing as a key initiate for retention of staff. While this is indeed positive, the approach in many cases lacks clear direction, as indicated by the fact that only 27% of respondents confirmed that they have a formal strategy in place that relates specifically to employee wellbeing. Without having a formalised, consistent approach across the organisation, businesses are missing out on the chance to identify key

Workplace Wellbeing trends and areas of weakness which will inform more meaningful engagement with staff.
Making Health & Wellbeing A Core Workplace Value “A healthy workforce is vital for us to create a healthy Ireland, so it’s great to see a business representative organisation like Ibec making a significant commitment to promoting wellbeing in the workplace,” noted Minister for Health, Simon Harris TD, at the launch of the KeepWell Mark in September 2017. “We look forward to working in partnership with all stakeholders to make health and wellbeing a core value of workplaces in Ireland.” Speaking about The KeepWell Mark, Ibec CEO Danny McCoy said, “It is really positive to see that workplace wellbeing is high on the agenda of Irish employers and that future increased investment in this area is in the pipeline for a large majority of organisations.” With talent attraction and retention so key to the continued success of Irish employers, it’s crucial that employers remain competitive and maintain an employer of choice status. Ibec is encouraging companies of all sizes in all sectors to participate in this initiative. For those wishing to get involved, visit www.thekeepwellmark.ie or contact email@example.com.
