Course Overview

Do you think a consumer will be able to assess the quality of the drug? This is difficult by just smelling, touching, or looking at the final product. Hence, you need thorough pharmaceutical GMP training to ensure every consumer receives high-quality drugs.

Since a basic cGMP course is not sufficient to ensure quality, the effort is to improve the overall conditions under which a pharmaceutical product is manufactured. As a result, you will see a dip in cGMP violations, and the operations will improve significantly.

As per FDA GMP inspection guidelines, here are some controls they focus on:

  • ·      Improving management systems
  • ·      Reliable testing of the samples, raw materials, and final products
  • ·      Developing strict operating procedures
  • ·      Consistent work on reducing the deviations
  • ·      Procuring quality raw materials
  • ·      Thorough investigations of the deviations

By adhering to this FDA GMP inspection checklist, you can avoid the most common quality failures in your manufacturing unit. The 58-page document on cGMP has excellent updates which will be discussed in this cGMP training.
