(TAMPA, FLA. USA, 02 December 2013) – After 10 years of setting the standard, ISPE announced today that it has made significant enhancements to its annual Facility of the Year Awards (FOYA) program, the premier global awards program focused on recognizing the innovation and creativity in manufacturing facilities serving the regulated healthcare industry. These enhancements are designed to celebrate the tenth anniversary of this distinguished awards program and include a new gala to recognize Category Winners at the annual ISPE-FDA CGMP Conference (part of ISPE’s newly created Pharmaceutical Quality Week) and an expanded presence for Category Winners at the ISPE Annual Meeting.

“Over the past decade, the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry has made significant advancements in the technology and processes used in building and renovating manufacturing facilities,” said Nancy Berg, ISPE President and CEO. “These advancements reflect the industry’s quest for excellence and superior product quality. As the premier awards program focused on recognizing these achievements, it is only fitting that the Facility of the Year Awards also make advancements in the way it showcases the Category Winners’ momentous accomplishments. By bringing the annual celebratory events for FOYA to Pharmaceutical Quality Week and the ISPE Annual Meeting, ISPE will present these innovative facilities to a global audience of top pharmaceutical leaders and regulators.”

The 2014 awards program is now accepting entries through 3 February 2014. Category Award Winners will be recognized in June in six categories: Operational Excellence, Project Execution, Equipment Innovation, Process Innovation, Sustainability, and Facility Integration. Companies interested in submitting their newly constructed or renovated facilities for the 2014 FOYA program can find complete eligibility criteria, program timelines and required entry forms at www.FacilityoftheYear.org/SubmitYourFacility.

Media passes are available for FOYA events, including the gala celebration at the CGMP Conference; interested members of the media should contact Danielle Hould at dhould@ispe.org to request credentials.
