QA, QC, GMP

What is GMP ?
• GMP is that part of Quality assurance which ensures that the products are consistently manufactured and controlled to the Quality standards appropriate to their intended use • "GMP" - A set of principles and procedures which, when followed by manufacturers for therapeutic goods, helps ensure that the products manufactured will have the required quality.

What is cGMP ?
• Usually see “cGMP” – where c = current, to emphasize that the expectations are dynamic

Quality Definition
• Quality of a medicinal product is measured by it’s fitness for purpose . Safety and efficacy are not separable from Quality but part of it

.

. • It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product.Good Manufacturing Practices • A basic tenet of GMP is that quality cannot be tested into a batch of product but must be built into each batch of product during all stages of the manufacturing process.

causing damage to health or even death. . which could mean that patients receive the wrong medicine.Some of the main risks are – unexpected contamination of products. – incorrect labels on containers. – insufficient or too much active ingredient. resulting in ineffective treatment or adverse effects.

.Why GMP is important – A poor quality medicine may contain toxic substances that have been unintentionally added. – A medicine that contains little or none of the claimed ingredient will not have the intended therapeutic effect.

• Governments seeking to promote their countries export of pharmaceuticals can do so by making GMP mandatory for all pharmaceutical production and by training their inspectors in GMP requirements.GMP helps boost pharmaceutical export opportunities • Most countries will only accept import and sale of medicines that have been manufactured to internationally recognized GMP. .

. • Detailed.GMP Covers… • ALL aspects of production. premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. • There must be systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process . written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. from the starting materials.every time a product is made.

swim with the current and in matter of Quality stand like a rock! .GMP • The Quality of a formulation or a bulk drug depends on the Quality of those producing it • GMP is the magic key that opens the door of the Quality • In matter of GMP.

QA. GMP & QC inter-relationship QA It is the sum total of the organized arrangements with the objective of ensuring that products will be of the quality required for their intended use .

GMP & QC inter-relationship GMP Is that part of Quality Assurance aimed at ensuring that products are consistently manufactured to a quality appropriate to their intended use .QA.

specification & testing.QA. GMP & QC inter-relationship QC Is that part of GMP concerned with sampling. documentation & release procedures which ensure that the necessary & relevant tests are performed & the product is released for use only after ascertaining it’s quality .

and release procedures which ensure that the necessary and relevant tests are carried out • QA is the sum total of organized arrangements made with the object of ensuring that product will be of the Quality required by their intended use. testing and with in the organization.QC and QA • QC is that part of GMP which is concerned with sampling. documentation. specifications. .

QC and QA • Operational • All those planned or laboratory techniques systematic actions and activities used to necessary to provide fulfill the requirement adequate confidence of Quality that a product will satisfy the requirements for quality .

QC and QA • QC is lab based • QA is company based .

GMP • All past GMPs are history….It is looking like in rear view mirror and driving .

Monitor facilities and equipment 6. Follow written procedures and Instructions 3. Design .develop and demonstrate job competence 8.Ten Principles of GMP 1. Validate work 5. Conduct planned and periodic audits . Design and construct the facilities and equipments properly 2. Control components and product related processes 10. Document work 4. Protect against contamination 9. Write step by step operating procedures and work on instructions 7.

Zero discharge • Adaptation of environment friendly methods • Consideration for better and healthier life tomorrow • Consideration of ethics in life • One should begin with end in mind otherwise it will be the beginning of the end .Beyond GMP • Reduce pollution .

Cost of effective GMP • In fact Cost benefits – positive cost benefits of GMP/QA • Good plant lay out. good stores lay outs and stores records. Smooth work flows. well controlled process.These are Good manufacturing practices • Reduction in work in process and inventory holding costs • Avoidance of cost of Quality failure ( cost of waste. of recall. Efficient documentation systems. of rework. of consumer compensation and of loss of company reputation) .
