IABS Launches its North American Affiliate: IABS-NA

This is another landmark event in the history of lABS, and will open the way for greater participation on scientific activities with partners in Canada, Mexico, and the USA. The objectives of IABS-NA are to support the mission and projects of IABS, to enhance its image, and to develop an outreach within North America. IABS-NA will contribute to the scientific and medical advancement of biologicals by facilitating communication among those who develop, produce and regulate biological products for human and animal health. More specifically, it will focus on issues concerning the regulation and standardization of biological products that are intended for marketing within this region. As a neutral meeting point for the major stakeholders - regulators, academia, and industry- IABS-NA will consider the impact of regulatory requirements on innovation, with the objective of identifying issues that may require further consideration and possible modification.

Discussions are already underway regarding a conference topic that will meet that objective, and that will complement and enhance IABS-EU activities.

IABS-NA is officially recognized by USA authorities as a charitable organization [501(c)(3) designation].
