Watch the seconds elapse in
anticipation of the approaching event



With EU GMP & PICS Annex 1 for sterile product manufacturing substantially revised andbecoming effective there is a paradigm shift in GMP regulations that all are challenged with implementation With PICS Annex 1: Pharmaceutical Inspection Co- operation scheme involving 56 member countries, including the US FDA, this increases significantly the international significance of this new paradigm in GMP regulations.

The new GMP paradigm considers a Holistic, Risk-based (QRM), and proactive approach to contamination control and sterility assurance. This Training covers (15) Topics of high impact and includes a Discussion forum to bench mark with others and understand what is considered as required to meet CGMP Compliance. FDA 483s are now being issued with what is considered an Annex 1 mindset so highly relevant topics will be discussed.
