Sector: Clinical, Cosmetic/Personal Care, Laboratory Equipment, Pharmaceutical, Veterinary, Water
Type: Webinar, Seminar
Risk management of raw materials in a GMP environment is an area that is often overlooked as a Company develops new products. Depending on the product being developed, e.g., tablets and capsules vs. biotechnology products, as few as fifteen to twenty raw materials or as many as sixty need to be sourced and accepted before the process can be moved from initiation through completion. This live presentation will extensively review this area. It will also delve into the renewed issue of microbial contamination of these raw materials and why the FDA, EMA and Health Canada have recently focused on this. It will also focus upon the revised ICH Q7 “Good Manufacturing Practice Guidance for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients“ which was revised in September 2016.
