PAC – Pharmaceutical Activities Committee
provide patients and healthcare professionals with top quality pharmaceutical ingredients for their medicines
The mission of the European API and pharmaceutical excipients manufacturers is to provide patients and healthcare professionals with top quality pharmaceutical ingredients for their medicines, thus ensuring the availability, affordability and adequate choice of pharmaceuticals that help promote quality of life.
This mission can only be achieved by levelling the playing field, by means of an effective Industrial Policy for the European manufacturer of pharmaceutical raw materials as API and pharmaceutical excipients, which helps to improve its competitiveness and high quality standards, facilitating a better access to other geographical areas.
The European API sector is a high technology sector with high added value which should be supported and promoted.

Active Pharmaceutial Ingredients
Throughout the years, EFCG has developed special relationships with a number of other industry associations to work on common issues. These include APIC – the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Committee, IPEC – the International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council, Medicines for Europe, as well as our counterparts around the world.
Our actions in the last years have allowed us, in a relatively short period of time, to positively influence the creation of better regulations and tougher enforcement for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APls) marketed in Europe (Falsified Medicines Directive) and the USA (FDASIA/GDUFA).
