Short description

What can you expect from this GMP Documentation Training? 

Well written Good Manufacturing Practice documents ensure that procedures are understood and closely followed. They simplify the production of pharmaceutical products and QC analyses, reduce mistakes and improve the safeguarding of data integrity.

Constructing well written documents is a skill that needs to be trained. During this course you will learn how to write GMP documents through the use of practical examples. By alternating theory and practice, the theory is immediately practised and applied in practice!

The following documentation aspects will be part of the theoretical sessions:

  • Purpose of GMP documents
  • Information that should always be included in procedures, batch production records and analytical sheets
  • Legal requirements for GMP documentation
  • Instructions for writing clear, unambiguous and easy-to-read documents
