- Good Manufacturing Practices
- Quality System Requirements
- Finished Pharmaceuticals
GMPs provide for systems that assure proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities. This formal system of controls at a pharmaceutical company, if adequately put into practice, helps to prevent instances of contamination, mix-ups, deviations, failures, and errors. This assures that drug products meet their quality standards.
This guidance book is meant as a resource to manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, providing up-to-date information concerning required and recommended quality system practices. It should be used as a companion to the regulations/standards themselves and texts on the specific processes and activities contained within the QMS.
A companion CD contains dozens of FDA guidance documents as well as international harmonization documents (WHO, PIC/S, and ICH). A check list for cGMP audit is also included based on risk management criteria. An exam complements the material included in the CD.
