Adherence to Good Manufacturing Practice requirements (cGMPs) is of utmost importance for pharmaceutical industry, as they produce and test products that are finally given to the patients. GMP requires that domestic or foreign manufacturers have an adequate quality system for the manufacture, testing, packaging, labelling and storage of medicinal products in place. This system should ensure that the drug products are adequately safe and effective for their intended use, and meet the required quality and purity characteristics.

However, ensuring compliance with GMP requirements is specifically challenging. Your specialists need to set up your manufacturing processes and control procedures in line with the latest prerequisites in order to successfully pass inspections later on and in order to avoid compliance risks. You need to have an SOP-system in place covering all necessary GMP-requirements.
