Receipt and Storage of cGMP Controlled Raw Materials Regulations and Best Practices

Manufactures of drugs who lack a defined raw material processing have received FDA 483s and lost several batches of products. Designing the Receipt, Handling and Processing, Specification, Inventory Tracking, and Qualification of cGMP Controlled Raw Materials is critical to Life sciences personnel to gain drug approvals.

Steps involved From Receipt through Release for Use of cGMP Raw Materials

This article specifies regulations and briefly discusses the first two steps ‘Receipt and Storage’.


Receipt of Raw materials:

Upon receipt, the inspection of incoming raw materials is an essential step. Inspection ensures that the correct raw material which meets the quality specifications has been received. It helps in maintaining safety, minimizing wasted time, material cost and delayed shipments if the specifications are not met.

Storage in controlled conditions

Storage in controlled conditions requires appropriate locations such as warehouses, and quality control areas. Storage also requires compliance during receiving and transferring materials. Quality equipment such as freezers and refrigerators too play a major part in storage control.
