The two day workshop on GMP for Quality Control Laboratories and FDA Audit Preparation, is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the regulatory background and guides attendees through all critical areas of GMP compliance. You will gather a thorough awareness of latest trends and updates with respect to USFDA, EU, WHO and PIC/S (Pharmaceutical Inspection Co-operation Scheme) and Indian GLP Schedule L1 compliance and guideline requirements. This course will also provide examples to develop inspection ready documentation.

Quality control and related contract laboratories are considered high risk because after testing and approval drug products and APIs are released to the market without further check. That's the reason why FDA and other agencies put highest emphasis on inspections of QC laboratories. Even though GMP regulations have been in place since long time, the large number of QC related 483's and warning letters demonstrate that companies have problems with implementation.

On completion of this course, the participants shall be well versed with the global Quality control laboratory compliance requirements, inspection trends as well as strategies and best practices for maintaining regulatory compliant GLP standards to ensure consistent Quality Attributes and bench marking Quality Metrics in the Pharmaceutical Quality Control Laboratories.

Practical examples and interactive exercises will be dispersed into and between the presentations. Here the experts will discuss case studies and create a platform platform to resolve QC laboratories' day-to-day issues like Documentations, Investigations (OOS, OOT, OOC) and validation compliance checklists to ensure you are well prepared for your next audit.  .
