PSCI 2018 Annual Report

PSCI 2018 Annual Report

5 Apr 2019 Document

"2018 has seen PSCI gain more members, reach more suppliers, perform more audits and host more events than ever before. The growth in our membership is a huge achievement but it is the growth in our impact that I am most proud of.

In the pages of this report you will read about our other achievements this year: holding members accountable, setting up a Board Advisory Panel, sharing data on suppliers’ carbon emissions, and a new visual brand identity and logo. Perhaps the most important pages are the ones that show our impact; the suppliers trained, the audits completed and followed up, the downloads of advisory documents from our technical library."

PSCI Member Audit Sharing Target

11 Jul 2018 Document

This document defines the PSCI member audit sharing target.
Approved by the PSCI Board in May 2018.
Applicable from January 2019.

Predicted-No-Effect-Concentration (PNEC) resource links

11 Jun 2018 Link

The following are useful resources for obtaining PNEC values.

  1. AMR Industry Alliance Antibiotic Discharge Targets - List of Predicted No-Effect Concentrations (PNECs).
    The PNEC table contains two values, PNEC‐Environment (PNEC‐ENV) values based on eco-toxicology and PNEC‐Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (PNEC‐MIC) values intended to be protective of resistance promotion.
    The AMR Industry Alliance recommendation is that companies target the lower of these two values (when available) for assessing manufacturing site discharges under a risk‐based framework.
  2. Temple WET Center PNEC database where you will find PNEC values for APIs other than antibiotics.
