GMP Training

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.

The GMP training program is a mandatory requirement for personnel involved in manufacture, testing, storage and release of drug products. Adequate training will help your personnel to increase their competency and knowledge, and will avoid mistakes, failures and compliance risks. Constant training on latest GMP-requirements, new SOPs and inspection trends are important for the competency of your personnel.

Major emphasis of our GMP training courses is to give participants an introduction to cGMP as required according to national requirements. Please note that if you export drugs to US you need to comply with US-GMPs which differ from EU-GMPs. The focus is placed on understanding the need for and the intent of the various GMP-requirements and to develop mechanisms for implementation and compliance.

Those attending will also get an understanding of the needs for thorough and comprehensive training and documentation. We will make sure that your employees get the desired results.

Our courses are designed for all scientists (managerial and laboratory) and professionals in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. Whether you are new to the pharmaceutical industry or you simply need refreshing training, HORN Pharmaceutical Consulting will consider your specific needs.

After our GMP training, all participants will have gained a fundamental understanding of the basis of the regulations, the necessity of rigorously implementing them, monitoring compliance and pro-active thinking in all scientific matters. This way the risk of non-compliance and delays in the approval process can be minimized.
