online webinar 2019 - 3 Hrs Webinar What do the FDA, EMA and PMDA Look for When Conducting cGMP Regulatory Inspections



VenueOnline, USA - United States USA - United States



Topics/Call fo Papers

GMP-compliance is a must for manufacturers of finished pharmaceutical products and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) according to the different national legislations. The related GMP rules are typically valid for one country based upon the anchoring in the respective national laws. However, at the same time the GMP rules are more or less internationally harmonized such as e.g. the ICH Q7 Guidelines representing the “Good Manufacturing Practice Guide for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients” being adopted by the regulatory bodies of the European Union (EU), Japan and USA.
Why should you
It has often been stated that “FDA inspects for compliance; European inspectors inspect for adequate science”. Yet GMPs have been enshrined into law for many countries and a drug/biologic/medical device manufacturer should have a reasonable expectation of all inspections being the same.
ICH Q7 was established by US / EU and Japan to harmonize inspections in their respective countries. This webinar will cover the key areas of how ICH Q7 was established, it's goals and objectives, expectations of the healthcare authorities involved and practical differences that you will experience in a GMP inspection of a facility by FDA, an EU Competent Authority or PMDA.. After this event, you will be fully prepared for cGMP regulatory inspections in those countries.
