This webinar reviews the requirements for good manufacturing practices for active pharmaceutical ingredients. It is based on the requirements of International Conference on Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use and its document Q7 Good Manufacturing Practice Guidance for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients.

The field of GMP for API is quite specific with unique requirements especially for the definition of ‘starting materials’, that is, where in a long synthetic sequence do these GMP become applicable.
