GMP audits and inspections are fundamental elements of managing quality in the pharmaceutical industry. On the one hand, pharmaceutical companies have to perform supplier audits. And on the other hand, the pharmaceutical companies as well as the suppliers are frequently inspected by the authorities (both national and international inspectorates like the FDA) as a central element of supervision.

For the company, an inspection can have a decisive influence on the daily work and its economic future. A sound and thorough preparation is an essential key to successfully pass an inspection.


This GMP Education Course is designed for all persons involved in preparing, managing and escorting audits and inspections.

Free tool for inspection preparation:

As a participant you will get a detailed checklist for inspection preparation (40 pages). This checklist can be adapted to prepare your pre-approval inspections, routine inspections or customer Audits.
