Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney Director of Federal Government Relations James C. Wiltraut, Jr. co-authored an article, "IPEC's Push for Third-party Auditing of Excipients" that was published in the August 2011 edition of American Pharamceutical Review.

The article discusses the recent move by International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council (IPEC) to develop a legislative proposal that would, according to Wiltraut, "empower the FDA by establishing a more formalized third-party auditing structure," thereby protecting the pharmaceutical supply chain from aldulterated excipients.
