Pharmaceutical Quality Management System (GMP Requirements, ICH Guidance, QbD, and USFDA/EMA Regulations)

One of the fundamental concepts of “current Good Manufacturing Practices” (cGMP) is that companies that manufacture and/or test 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 documented from first to last.
This “State of Control” is achieved by having a set of Quality Systems that provide a documented context within which to manufacture and test drugs. In the late 1990’s the US FDA, the European Agencies and Japan began an effort to standardize regulator expectations for cGMP manufacturing. This culminated in a series of Quality Guidances under the banner of the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH). The ICH guidances that cover Quality aspects (listed Q1 through Q12) define the high level expectation for maintaining a State of Control.
This course will cover those ICH Guidances related to the Quality Systems for manufacturing:
Seminar Fee Includes:
LunchAM-PM Tea/CoffeeSeminar MaterialAttendance Certificate$100 Gift Cert for next seminar
ICH-Q7: cGMPs for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients ICH-Q8: Quality by Design for introducing new or generic products into manufacturing ICH-Q9: Risk Assessment and the role of assessing Risk in the development, manufacturing, testing and supply chain of drugs. ICH-Q10: Quality Management ICH-Q11: Development and Manufacture of Drug Substances
In addition certain aspects of the USFDA’s and EMA’s laws will also be covered:
21CFR210/211/820: US Code of Federal Regulations relating to drugs Eudralex & Annexes: EMA’s Rules for Governing Medicinal Products
As data integrity has become a “hot” topic and a frequent observation by regulators, one session will be devoted to Data Integrity in both manual and automated systems.
21CFR Part 11: Electronic Records & Electronic Signatures Annex 11: Computerized Systems MHRA Guidance on Data Integrity
US FDA, MHRA, EMA, Japan all have an extremely high expectation that manufacturers and testing labs who sell and/or test products for their markets will conform to the requirements for having a “State of Control”. This state will be evaluated by inspectors to determine that the Quality Systems are in place and that the Quality Management is able to maintain discipline and provide documentary evidence that a State of Control exists.Inadequate Quality Systems and/or Quality Management are a guaranteed path to receiving an Import Alert, Warning Letter and/or EU Non-compliance Report.
A small investment to ensure the GMP workforce, especially Quality Unit Management, is fully in control of the Quality Systems is excellent insurance to avoid regulatory action that can have a negative market impact on the company and potentially huge cost for remediation.
In this two day workshop conference you will learn what global regulators expect for Quality Systems, Quality Management and a State of Control. During the workshop we will analyze case studies and perform class activities to better understand both theory and some practical approaches to Quality Management.
Upon completing this course participants should:
Understand the history and expectations for global regulators for Quality Management and a State of Control Understand the vocabulary Quality Management including expectations for a “Quality Culture” Understand aspects related to Quality Management from the following sources: ICH-Q7 GMPs ICH-Q8 Quality by Design for new and generic drugs ICH-Q9 Risk Management ICH-Q10 Pharmaceutical Quality System ICH-Q11 Development & Manufacture of Drug Substance 21CFR 210/211/820 for GMPs 21CFR 314 for Post Market Surveillance 21CFR Part 11 & Annex 11 MHRA’s Guidance on Data Integrity Understand the role and importance of Documentation Understand the interaction and integration required for successful GMP operations How to prepare and present the State of Control to investigators during an inspection
