AOMG Quality & Regulatory Workshop

Category: News Published: Tuesday, 12 September 2017


The AOMG Technical Committee has successfully conducted annual workshops that included process safety since 2011. The last one was on Management of Change held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia from 27-28 July 2017. The workshops were targeted at production, engineering and safety personnel.   Two workshops for other personnel viz laboratory, quality assurance etc were on Globally Harmonised System (GHS) on 2 October 2014 and 9-10 May 2016, both held in Medan, Indonesia. The AOMG EXCO has agreed to an annual workshop for other personnel and have supported at its AGM on 6 March 2017 to organize a Quality & Regulatory Workshop in early October 2017.


Anyone who is dealing with the topics (stated in the programme below) can attend, be it from the technical or commercial side. We would in fact welcome some commercial participation so that the discussions are more balanced.
