Large pharmaceutical companies use thousands of excipients while manufacturing formulations. However, it is practically impossible to conduct all audits by themselves. To resolve this issue, EXCiPACT was created by IPEC Europe, IPEC Americas, FECC, EFCG and PQG as a rigorous, independent, third-party audit system to respond to regulatory requirements and reduce the audit burden of pharmaceutical companies as well as audit authorities.

EXCiPACT thus helps ensure patient safety through supplier quality, while minimising the overall supply chain costs. The user i.e. pharmaceutical industry can take this standardized audit report as a valid reference for their regulatory compliance without having to do the audit by themselves or by appointing other agency.


EXCiPACT is an independent not-for-profit association that provides management oversight for independent, third-party certification of manufacturers, suppliers and distributors of pharmaceutical excipients worldwide. EXCiPACT selects independent, third-party accredited certification bodies, employing ISO 9001 qualified auditors who also have to meet EXCiPACT auditor competency requirements.
