Dr Rainer Gnibl is pharmacist and GMP Inspector for the District Government and the EMA and performs GMP inspections worldwide. Before that, he was working for the Bavarian Ministry of Environment and Health. Rainer Gnibl also holds a lectureship at the University Erlangen-Nürnberg.
On 2nd March 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration FDA and the European Medicines Agency EMA informed that they concluded a so-called MRA (Mutual Recognition Agreement). Such agreements are intended to mutually recognise GMP inspection systems and accept the respective inspections. The agreement shall cover both medicinal products and APIs. Some CBER regulated products like human blood, human plasma, human tissues and organs, and veterinary immunologicals are excluded from the scope of the agreement. The new agreement should come into force on 1st November 2017. Until then, the FDA wants to review the authorities of further EU countries.
The webinar targets executives and staff in the pharmaceutical industry, who want to get a comprehensive overview of the agreement and its consequences.
