GMP Compliance for Quality Control and Contract Laboratories

Up-to-date FDA/EMA Requirements and Tools for Cost Effective Implementation

Recorded, available with all reference material at any time

Order Button

Quality control laboratories are considered high risk because after testing and approval pharmaceutical drug products and APIs are released to the market without further check. That's the reason why FDA and other agencies put highest emphasis on inspections of QC and related contract laboratories. Even though cGMP regulations have been in place since long time, the large number of QC related 483's and warning letters demonstrate that companies have problems with up-to-date requirements and implementation.

Key Questions related to GMP compliance in QC laboratories:

  • What is the difference between GMP and Non-GMP laboratories?
  • What is the different between GLP and GMP requirements for laboratories?
  • What is FDA's current focus during inspections?
  • What are the key GMP requirements for laboratories?
  • Which procedures do we need?
  • Which laboratory records should be retained for how long?
  • How to handle out-of-specification test results?
  • What do FDA inspectors specifically look at during inspections?
  • How to prepare for an FDA or EU inspection?
  • What are the typical deviations found during inspections and how to avoid them?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like master plans, SOPs, templates and real-life examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and international regulations and guidelines
  • Current inspection practices and most frequently found deviations
