Chris Barnett, MA, MSc, MBA, CChem FRSC, Qualified Person

View Chris Barnett's profile on LinkedIn

I graduated in Natural Sciences from Christ's College Cambridge in 1981, and since then I have enjoyed a varied career within the pharmaceutical industry. I spent twenty years working for major multinational companies, with ten of those years in quality assurance and ten in new product development and project management. In 2002, I helped to found Pharmaceutical Development Services, and helped drive it to becoming one of the UK's foremost CMC consultancies. I still work with them for some projects, and happily recommend my clients to use their regulatory and formulation development expertise.

GMP, Quality Management and regulatory compliance have always been important to me, along with working to a high personal code of ethics and integrity.

I have a rare blend of expertise in managing interfaces, whether between factories, or between R&D and Production. Since 2001, I have been consulting to the pharmaceutical industry, focused on GMP, quality management and quality systems, and providing services to companies at every stage of development from pre-clinical to post-commercialisation.

An analytical chemist by training, I am eligible for nomination as a Qualified Person under the permanent provisions of EU Directives 2001/83/EC and 2001/20/EC.

I am a Chartered Chemist and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, a Chartered Quality Professional, a member of the Pharmaceutical Quality Group and of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering. I am also certified by the API Compliance Institute as an auditor of API manufacturing units against ICHQ7.

I am also a member of the Xiota network of senior consultants to the life sciences sector.

Outside of the industry, I am a Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) Business Practitioner, enjoy scuba diving, rowing and weight training, and am a practised tinkerer with computers. Married with one son, I also speak fluent Spanish.
