GMP Compliance for Quality Control Laboratories: Step-by-Step

FDA/EMA Requirements and Tools for Cost Effective Implementation

May 17, 2018

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 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 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 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 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 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 examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA and international regulations and guidelines
  • Most frequently found deviations during inspections
  • Major differences between GMP and non GMP laboratories
  • Compliance along the laboratory workflow
