One of the fundamental concepts of “Good Manufacturing Practices” (GMP) is that companies manufacturing and/or testing medicines should be in a constant “State of Control”; in other words the medicines produced should have pure raw materials, appropriate equipment, cleanliness, trained personnel, accurate testing and everything This GMP Huddle Seminar covers the foundation of the regulations that control the manufacturing and distribution of pharmaceuticals & biologics sold in United States. Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) are defined for all Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Regulated products in Title 21 CFR 210/211. Application of the regulations will be discussed and examples provided throughout the GMP course. Attendees will gain an understanding of how knowledge of the regulations facilitate efficient and cost effective production and problem resolution. This GMP Huddle Seminar provides a complete overview of the industry requirements as specified by the FDA. It will provide participants with an understanding of common terminology and the role GMP plays in their day-to-day responsibilities. Focus is given to the regulatory nature of CGMP compliance, managing the implementation of GMP efforts and proactively sustaining a culture of compliance in all scientific and manufacturing efforts.


This GMP Huddle is designed for those who work in a cGMP environment, both beginners and advanced professionals. It is designed for all those who have roles and responsibilities that require them to understand and apply cGMP quality principles in their job as related to product discovery, development, and/or manufacturing. It will benefit professionals who are new to industry by presenting an overview of the important concepts in a logical and natural sequence so they can begin to understand GMP regulations and begin applying them effectively. "Limited Seats for this INTERACTIVE Huddle Seminar" This Huddle will be extremely useful for quality assurance & quality control managers for effective GMP compliance and proper Vendor Management including periodic vendor audits using various tools and techniques discussed over the 2 day seminar. As this Huddle addresses cGMP regulations, attendees working with finished pharmaceuticals, combination products, biological and APIs will gain insight on how to better structure their respective quality systems in order to more effectively manage compliance for multiple products.
