Dr Jens-Uwe Rengers, Consultant


This course examines regulatory requirements, provides insight into inspectors’ expectations and explains tools for improving your documented review processes.

Based on real examples you will learn how you can implement and improve your Quality Reviews and use them more efficiently.


Quality Reviews and Metrics are critical GMP elements. They are an integral part of a pharmaceutical quality system and provide an opportunity to assess and control relevant processes.

Both parts of the EU-GMP Guidelines require the Product Quality Review (PQR) to verify the consistency and appropriateness of existing processes,  but also to identify product and process improvement opportunities.

The FDA 21CFR 211 requires an Annual Product Review (APR) to evaluate annually the quality standards of each drug product.

All relevant guidance do also consider a Management Review to be an appropriate instrument to assess adequacy and effectiveness of quality systems.
All these different reviews could result in a tremendous work load or they can be performed in an efficient way with useful results – depending on how they are organised. Therefore it is very important to understand the requirements and the idea behind it and to see how these tools can be used more efficiently.


This Education Course is designed for managers, supervisors and all other staff members in the pharmaceutical and API industry who are involved in preparing and compiling Quality Reviews and Metrics.

Every participant will get:

  • an example for  PQR SOP Annexes
  • an example for a Management Review SOP
  • real PQR examples
  • extracts from real Management Reviews
