Along with his QP certification, Russell has extensive experience across the full range of CMC related activities associated with the development, manufacturing (both clinical and commercial), and registration (from API synthesis to finished product packaging) of a wide range of dosage forms focused in the EU regulatory space.


Russell has visited our facility on numerous occasions to conduct QP audits and has provided UIP a GMP Audit Certificate confirming his assessment of the general compliance of the operations and systems of UIP with the requirements, principles, and guidelines of European Commission Directive 2003/94/EC as interpreted in EudraLex – Volume 4 Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Guidelines.


Russell’s availability will lower your QP release services cost and save you time. Additionally, he can provide links to European service providers who can be utilized for product importation. If his recommended CMO is used for product importation, he can provide a QP Declaration for supplies intended for utilization in European clinical trials.
