Event Objective

Good Manufacturing Practices are critical to everyday operations in the pharmaceutical industry. The basic principles of GMP are to assure the quality, potency, identity, safety and purity of products and to protect both the consumer and the company. This 2-day course provides a refresher of Good Manufacturing Practices based on current Health Canada guidelines. In 2017 Health Canada issued proposed updates to GUI-001 with a view to harmonize it with global GMP standards. This course has been updated to include the proposed changes. It bridges the gap between the black and white regulations and everyday operations by describing the regulations and the practical application of them through key quality system elements, essential to GMP compliance. The course material is presented by means of slides, handouts and participation of the attendees through discussion and group exercises. Hands on exercises enable participants to map their individual GMP responsibilities and gain the skills and knowledge necessary to understand and work in a GMP compliant environment and contribute to the ongoing quality of their company.
