Meeting the Latest GMP Requirements During Clinical Manfacturing
: 19 Aug 2020
Type: Training, Webinar
While operating your commercial manufacturing according to GMP can be difficult, adhering to the regulations during the manufacture of materials destined for clinical trials poses even more challenges. Unlike commercial operations where operations are well defined and processes are validated, clinical manufacturing processes are in constant flux. In the same way, your testing is also evolving as the knowledge of your product and processes increases. How can we maintain GMP's in this evolving world of constant change? It is a challenge that many companies face and have difficulty with. It requires the manufacturing organisation to retain flexibility and agility of operation, but it requires more from the Quality organisation. These staff must retain appropriate levels of control where needed, yet exhibit flexibility when required. Does that mean that GMP's do not apply or we administer GMP-lite? No. Rather we tailor the GMP's to meet the challenges of the special circumstances of the operations. In some cases, we allow great flexibility and in others, we enforce tighter controls. Because everything is in flux, we can not build quality into operations and must rely on testing quality in - a cardinal sin in commercial operations. In clinical manufacturing, the overall target is to protect the patient in a world of absence of concrete knowledge, especially when not knowing if the product even works.
This live training webinar will provide valuable information designed to prepare you to implement the GMPs differently in the clinical manufacturing setting versus commercial. We will outline the changing world of the operations, as products undergo development and definition, as the stability program evolves and as we set formulations, presentations, and expiry dating. All of this while you adjust the GMP's to meet your needs and not losing sight of the goal to protect the patient. It will describe how you judge product quality and acceptability when your knowledge of the product and process is rudimentary and ever-changing. We will discuss the time when elements must be locked down to assure success in development whilst protecting the patient and assuring success when the product dossier is filed for approval. It will describe tools to help you to make decisions that will be defendable to the company and to the regulators.
- The ever-changing environment of clinical manufacturing and how to interpret the GMP's to your advantage.
- Where flexibility is acceptable and required and where it is unacceptable.
- How to make quality decisions where knowledge is absent or sketchy at best.
- How to build the case for your decisions based on risk analysis.
- When various components of your product and processes have to be locked down to maximize your chances of approval.
- How to interpret the regulations which were designed for commercial operations in a clinical world.
- How other companies fail to meet the agency requirements in their operations so you do not have to repeat them.
