This Education Course concentrates on regulatory and practical requirements regarding biopharmaceutical
production. From clinical phases to routine manufacturing practical examples and case studies will facilitate the implementation of GMP in your daily business.
The course will treat the topics of routine inspection from regulatory bodies and customers, quality assurance and quality control as well as in laboratory and production.
Speakers from manufacturing, laboratory, consultancy and authority will show their expectations as well as their experiences in GMP implementation.


In defiance of all throwbacks in the last years, a progression of new approvals of biopharmaceuticals is expected. Furthermore after the end of the protection of patents, biotechnical generics will be added. Especially in the field of biotechnology you found particular challenges to fulfil the regulatory requirements on production and quality assurance. Industry and authorities are treated with the new and expected changes in the regulatory guidelines.


This course is advisable to people who
Are involved in regulatory inspections
Work in quality units at biotech companies
Implement GMP in biotech production
Are responsible for GMP requirements pre-approval phases
