Laboratory analysis in line with GMPs

Your needs : to call on an analytical laboratory working in a GMP environment providing various services for the pharmaceutical industry

What are GMPs ?

GMPs (good manufacturing practices) are defined by the WHO (world health organization) as “the aspect of quality assurance that ensures that medicinal products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use and as required by the product specification”.

In the pharmaceutical industry, GMPs are very important given the high level of quality that is required during the development, production and monitoring of products.

GMPs cover the notion of quality assurance throughout the development, production and monitoring processes of pharmaceutical products and not just on the finished product.

GMPs apply to pharmaceutical products intended for both human or animal consumption.

For years, competent authorities have been looking to harmonize GMPs worldwide

The ICH Q7, Q8, Q9, Q10 can be fully integrated into GMPs on different levels, such as ICH Q7 which specifies the GMPs for active ingredients (API) or even ICH Q8, Q9 and Q10 which mention the “quality by design” approach for GMPs.

What criteria does an analytical laboratory have to fulfil to fall in line with GMPs ?

A laboratory working in accordance with GMPs must abide by certain guidelines :

  • A location up to standards
  • Trained and qualified personnel
  • Qualified equipment
  • Complete traceability via a reliable registration system
  • Procedures written out and validated by quality assurance
  • A regular internal audit system

Are you looking to cooperate with a reliable and reactive analytical laboratory, working in line with GMPs and abiding by the above guidelines ? Call on FILAB !
