This two day workshop on 'Good Laboratory Practices' is an important element of GMP in pharmaceutical manufacturing and a regulatory compliance requirement. Accurate, consistent and reliable analytical results are crucial for assessing the quality of drug substances, drug products and other pharmaceutical materials. Very high level of knowledge & discipline is required in the QC laboratory to achieve this objective. During the past several years Integrity of laboratory data in Indian pharmaceutical companies, specifically electronic records and data are in the focus by international regulatory agencies. The work shop has been designed to cover various aspects of laboratory activities and disciplines in line with the expectations of international regulatory agencies and ICH guidance documents to ensure data reliability and compliance to regulations.

The two day workshop will provide an in-depth understanding of various elements of GLP as applied to chemical analysis in a typical pharmaceutical QC / AR&D laboratory. The discussion will focus on validation of key analytical methods like chromatographic method, impurity profiling of actives, stability study program as well as means of achieving adequate control of electronic data along with other laboratory issues. The discussion will also cover current concerns of FDA with regard to integrity of electronic data in the laboratory and strategies to address these regulatory concerns.

The participants will learn latest concepts of GLP and expectations of international regulatory agencies/ ICH guidance documents as well as current regulatory concerns on data integrity issues. The workshop will enable the participants to frame a strategy to address these regulatory concerns while establishing a laboratory system to provide assurance on the accuracy and reliability of analytical data.  .
