Almost all FDA findings during GMP inspections include raw material related issues and most FDA warning letters to GMP facilities cite violations in raw material management. FDA's GMP inspectors pay special attention to the way raw materials are sourced, handled, controlled, used, and accounted for at a given facility. There is mention of raw material management in GMP regulations for all kinds of FDA regulated products – drugs, biologics, medical devices, diagnostic kits, dietary supplements and veterinary products. Raw material management is particularly challenging because it is mostly based on performance of independent vendors out of direct control of the GMP facility. Hence it is important for all GMP manufactures to implement robust methods for raw material risk management.
This FDA GMP training will help you understand the current requirements for raw material management with tips for practical implementation. It covers FDA’s expectations from GMP facilities regarding raw material vendor selection, measures for assuring acceptable quality of material supplied, expectations from quality control and documentation processes, and training requirements, with case studies.
