In the manufacture and quality control of medicinal products, compliance with the GMP rules is the decisive aspect for manufacturing high-quality products. For this reason, every staff member in the pharmaceutical industry has to be familiar with the basic GMP requirements. The relevant European GMP regulations define the following prerequisites:

In practice, many members of staff are often unaware of the contents and meaning of the different GMP requirements from Europe and the US and their consequences for product quality. During this course, speakers with long-standing experience in the training of employees introduce and explain the most important elements of a pharmaceutical GMP system in an easy-to-understand way.


The course is directed to staff from the pharmaceutical industry having no or little experience with the current GMP requirements. This includes both employees who, after their vocational training, enter the pharmaceutical industry and experienced colleagues who work for the first time in a GMP-regulated environment. Participation is also recommended for personnel from suppliers who have to understand the quality requirements of their customers.
