FDA/EU cGMP Compliance for Laboratories

Requirements and Tools for Implementation


Order Button

When drug companies develop products along the drug life cycle from research to development, clinical studies and manufacturing at some point laboratories have to comply with GMP regulations. US and most international countries have GMP regulations that have specific sections for laboratories. However, regulations only tell you what to do but not how to implement. So there are many questions.

Key Questions related to cGMP compliant laboratories:

  • What is the difference between GMP and Non-GMP laboratory
  • What is the different between GLP and GMP requirements for laboratories
  • What are the key GMP requirements for laboratories?
  • Which procedures do we need?
  • Which laboratory records should be retained for how long?
  • How to conduct failure investigations?
  • What do FDA inspectors look at during inspections?
  • How to prepare for an FDA or EU inspection?
  • What are the main deviations?

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 SOPs, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.
