How to Comply with International GMP Regulations

Prepare Your Production and QC Lab for International Inspections


Order Button

APIs, and finished drugs and medical devices marketed to a specific country should comply with GMP regulations of that country, no matter where the products have been developed and manufactured. Unfortunately GMPs are not identical within all countries. On the other hand global pharmaceutical companies and API manufacturers want to market products to as many countries as possible to leverage high development costs. It is just impossible to develop different procedures for each target country. Therefore a good understanding of common requirements is important, but also differences.

Key Questions related to national and international GMP regulations are:

  • What is the key difference between GMPs worldwide
  • What is the difference to FDA regulations?
  • Are there any specific requirements in guidance documents we should care about?
  • What are common requirements?
  • What are inspection practices in international countries?
  • What are the requirement and responsibilities for the 'qualified person' in Europe?
  • How to write documentation that it is acceptable by all agencies?
  • In which language should I prepare all my documentation?
  • Does ICH 7QA replace 21 CFR Part 211 for APIs?
  • We developed procedures for US FDA. Is this good enough for all international GMP regulations?
  • How to prepare for inspections from multiple countries?
  • Can any international inspection come unannounced?
  • Can agencies share inspection information
  • Where can I get all these international regulations and guidelines?

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.
