Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)
GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practices. It is the part of quality assurance. It is concerned with both production and quality control that means. A GMP certificate is granted when the manufacturing facility has been audited and found to demonstrate satisfactory compliance with the required GMP standard.
GMP is an important part of a comprehensive system of quality assurance. Quality control is the base of GMP that is concerned with sampling, specifications, testing, documentation, and release procedures. Its aim is developing new regulatory policies based on the latest science of risk management and quality assurance. The new standards are being designed to encourage cost-reducing and precision enhancing innovation in manufacturing and technology.
GMP is the set of principles that must be observed during the manufacturing process. It helps in reducing operating cost and boost export opportunities. Every company has a moral and legal responsibility to provide safe products and well trained employees who follow the practices that result in safe products. It also help in increasing customer's long-term confidence in the enterprises.
What is GMP?
This certification is something we are all quite proud of and believe is yet another step in the direction of differentiating ourselves and delivering a very high level of service to our clients. "GMP" is part of a quality system covering the manufacture and testing of active pharmaceutical ingredients, diagnostics, foods, pharmaceutical products and medical devices. They are a series of general principles that must be observed during manufacturing. When a company is setting up its quality program and manufacturing process, there may be many ways it can fulfill GMP requirements. It is the company's responsibility to determine the most effective and efficient quality process. It is the part of quality assurance which ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use.
Implementation of GMP is an investment in good quality medicines. It also helps in increasing the process efficiency and product quality by adopting the current, risk-based manufacturing approach and in turn optimizes manufacturing process and improves quality of the end-product. It focuses on quality management and risk control (HACCP), improve their corporate image and reliability.
