About Us

EXCiPACT is a voluntary international scheme to provide independent 3rd party certification of manufacturers, suppliers and distributors of pharmaceutical excipients. By ensuring the competency of the 3rd party auditors, and the frameworks in which they operate, it will ensure patient safety through supplier quality, whilst minimising the audit burden and overall costs for assessing the excipient supply chain without sacrificing quality.

A group of industry experts from the European Fine Chemicals Group (EFCG), the International Pharmaceuticals Excipients Council (IPEC) Europe, IPEC Americas, the European Association of Chemicals Distributors (FECC), and the Pharmaceutical Quality Group (PQG), worked together as a consortium on the development of a certification scheme for pharmaceutical excipient suppliers – EXCiPACT
