IPAC-RS is an international association that seeks to advance the science, and especially the regulatory science, of orally inhaled and nasal drug products (OINDP) by collecting and analyzing data, and conducting joint research and development projects. Members include innovator and generic companies that develop, manufacture or market orally inhaled and nasal drug products for local and systemic treatment of a variety of debilitating diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and diabetes.


IPAC-RS aims to build consensus and contribute to effective regulations and standards by sharing the results of our research through conferences, technical journals, and discussions with regulatory bodies. IPAC-RS represents the interests of its members to international authorities and standard-setting bodies (such as the FDA). IPAC-RS’ mission is to enhance the quality and availability to patients of orally inhaled and nasal drug products (OINDP) through scientifically driven advancements related to development and regulation of these products.
