GMP compliance training covers topics such as recordkeeping, personnel, sanitation, equipment, process validation and complaints. By educating industry workers on such issues, training helps eliminate contamination and errors that may occur during manufacturing and processing.
Training topics outlined in typical GMP seminars are geared toward various sectors of the health care industry. Such topics include compliance training on pharmaceuticals, medical devices, laboratory practices, quality control and manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, clinical studies on the effects of new drugs in humans, distribution practices for wholesalers and distributors and overall best practices for distributors of human tissue.
GMP training is an international issue, as agencies in the United States and across Europe regulate pharmaceutical and medical industries. In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) oversees regulations, while in the United Kingdom, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) governs practices.
Good manufacturing practice (GMP) compliance training is an essential way for manufacturers, processors and packagers of drugs, medical devices, blood and some food products to make sure that their products are safe and effective.
