Introduction to Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP)

October 24 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Good Manufacturing Practices, GMP, Standards, Documentation

The term “GMP” stands for Good Manufacturing Practices, which entails a system of processes, documentation and procedures for specific industries such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and food. The purpose of GMP is to ensure that products are produced to consistent, high-quality standards and covers all aspects of the manufacturing process from raw materials to finished goods.

This workshop will introduce participants to the general purpose of GMP and includes:

  • Basic regulations – GMPs have a legal aspect. Certain industries are subject to GMPs such as:
    • Pharmaceutical
    • Food industry
    • Regulated health care products
  • What is covered on a GMP system?
    • Safety: Products are free from unknown side effects and hazards
    • Identity: The product matches the label description

    • Purity: The product is free from contamination
    • Quality: The product meets regulatory requirements wherever it is sold and can be made consistently
  • Guidelines and practical examples
  • How can you contribute to a GMP?
