Why Should You Attend:

Compliance with the previous Annex 18 regulations for active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), EU GMP Part I, was on a voluntary basis and was in line with the EU’s agreement to ICH Q7A guidance. Since 2004 Article 46(f) of Directive 2001/83/EC and Article 50 of Directive2001/83/EC, as amended by Directives 2004/27/EC and 2004/28/EC respectively, mandate manufacturing authorisation holders to only use active substances that have been manufactured according to Good Manufacturing Practice for starting materials. This was then broadened to include excipients, therefore, the course includes requirements from the Joint IPEC-PQG Good Manufacturing Practices Guide for Pharmaceutical Excipients (2006).

This webinar is designed for quality professionals who may or may not have external auditing experience to give a thorough background on auditing suppliers of excipients and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) to the pharmaceutical industry. It will further provide guidance on consistent reporting of findings and will emphasize the differences from regular final drug product auditing.

This webinar is geared towards those taking part in supplier audits for the first time, as well as more experienced auditors with a good manufacturing practice (GMP) or wider GxP background.

  • EU GMP Guide Part II: Basic Requirements for Active Substances Used as Staring Materials

  • Provide auditors of pharmaceutical ingredients with the knowledge and skills awareness to plan, conduct and report an effective audit of API and excipient manufacturers
