The Pharmaceutical Quality Group (PQG) is the CQI's longest established special interest group, and has been supporting quality professionals in the pharma industry for more than 30 years.

The PQG aims to support qualified persons in the pharma industry, including trainees and those who are newly qualified. It arranges regular meetings on quality assurance, good manufacturing practice and hot topics.

Through its work it seeks to develop guidance on a range of regulatory requirements, as well as good manufacturing practice application standards and guidance for suppliers to the pharma industry.

It also manages a certification scheme for suppliers and acts as the focus for regular liaison with representatives of the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI). The group organises co-operative ventures and meetings with other groups such as IPEC and IPAC-RS.
