Quality control and related contract laboratories are considered high risk because after testing and approval drug products and APIs are released to the market without further check. That's the reason why FDA and other agencies put highest emphasis on inspections of QC laboratories. Even though cGMP regulations have been in place since long time, the large number of QC related 483's and warning letters demonstrate that companies have problems with implementation.

This 2-day interactive seminar provides the regulatory background and guides attendees through all critical areas of GMP compliance. The course not only helps attendees to understand the requirements but also provides templates and examples to develop inspection ready documentation. Practical examples and interactive exercises will be dispersed into and between the presentations. About 50% of the total time will be dedicated to practical sessions. Here attendees work in small groups on case studies and prepare the answers using prepared fill-in templates. After the course a large variety of tools such as SOPs, validation examples and checklists will be readily available on a dedicated website that can be used to easily implement what they have learned in the course
