About Us

ISPE History

ISPE was founded in 1980 by a handful of people who believed the pharmaceutical industry needed an organization that would deal with practical applications of science and technology for technical professionals. The much-needed forum provided by ISPE began with a Membership of engineers in North America. In time, ISPE Membership expanded beyond engineering to include a broad representation from pharmaceutical professionals.

Mission Statement: ISPE is the leading technical organization for professionals engaged in producing quality medicines and pharmaceutical delivery devices throughout the product lifecycle.

ISPE, the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering, is the world's largest not-for-profit association serving its Members by leading scientific, technical and regulatory advancement throughout the entire pharmaceutical lifecycle.

ISPE is committed to the advancement of the educational and technical efficiency of its members through forums for the exchange of ideas and practical experience.
