Event Objective

Good Manufacturing Practices are critical to every day 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 and FDA guidelines. It includes the new requirements described in GUI-0001 version 2 which was released in 2011 by Health Canada as well as emphasizing the key changes brought about in the original version in 2009. 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.
