How to produce safe drugs through better GMP understanding

Good manufacturing practice (GMP) is the set of rules for commercial drug manufacturing defined in regulatory documents of health care authorities all over the world. It is crucial for patients that medicinal drugs are manufactured in uncompromisingly high quality for safety reasons.

It is a major challenge to keep up to date with hundreds of continuously changing global regulations in the GMP sector for the pharmaceutical industry. In addition to identifying new legal requirements – the rules have to be implemented effectively as well.

For the last 10 Years, the GMP MANUAL covers all aspects of GMP in one source to amplify the existing expert knowledge.

The GMP MANUAL helps the customers with reliable and trusted information:
  • “GMP in Practice” – covers GMP interpretations written by internationally renowned industry experts, providing practical help.
  • “GMP Regulations” – contains continuously updated important GMP regulations from the United States (CFR and FDA) to Europe, also including guidelines published by the PIC/S, the ICH, the WHO and others.
88 authors, all noted industry specialists, and 18 staff members are currently combining their knowledge for the success of the GMP MANUAL.
