IDQC-HCMC as 2023 AOAC SEA Conference Co-organizer

AOAC SEA is happy to announce that the Institute of Drug Quality Control in Ho Chi Minh City (IDQC-HCMC) has joined us as the co-organizer of the 2023 annual meeting of AOAC SEA. In this second annual conference to be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam in August, we aim to bring together regional and global experts and stakeholders to share the latest trends in science and technology, regulations, standards and compliance related to food safety issues across South-East Asia, and how they impact international food trade.

IDQC-HCMC is one of the leading testing agencies directly under Vietnam’s Ministry of Health, with its functions of pre/post market surveillance of drugs, cosmetics, foods, and therapeutic goods. The Institute was also assigned by the Ministry of Health to direct the network of provincial testing centers from Da Nang to Ca Mau.

IDQC-HCMC envisions to become the best laboratory in the region for quality control of drugs, food, cosmetics and other medical products that affect public health. Its mission is to provide customers with authentic analytical certificates within an appropriate timeframe and with quality assurance. IDQC-HCMC bears the responsibility of a health authority with a task to improve public health. Its testing service and calibration activities comply to GLP and ISO17025 standards.

Sharing the missions in ensuring the safety and integrity of food and other products that directly impact public health through excellence in analytical testing, AOAC SEA and IDQC-HCMC are honoured to partner up to deliver a successful conference to the community of analytical science in the country and region.
