3-Hour Virtual Seminar on GMP Auditing for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and Excipient Suppliers

Good manufacturing practice (GMP) is an internationally recognized set of regulations to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of medicines and healthcare products for humans and animals. Compliance is regulated by nationally assigned Competent Authorities, for example: HC (Canada), FDA (US), TGA (Australia), MHRA (UK) and EMA (Europe). Other countries where these rules have been formally adopted or supported are South Africa, Asia, and Japan.
