APEC ministers specifically approved the establishment of the AHC in Seoul in 2009 to provide workshops to government policy makers, regulators, academics, and other public and private sector stakeholders on the harmonization of standards and regulations in life science products.

The workshop will provide participants with various plenaries ranging from topics involving the values and difficulties of MRCTs to ICH guidelines and more, followed by panel breakout sessions for more experts to engage in dialogue regarding MRCTs. Highly qualified speakers as well as panelists have been invited to partake in this landmark event, and workshop attendees can expect to gain much useful information about the critical value of MRCTs in the international spectrum.
