Top 10 GMP Deficiencies

No. 20/2012 - June 2012

Dear Colleagues,

the recent PDA-PIC/S event in Geneva was a great success. The Pharmaceutical Inspection Cooperation Scheme (PIC/S) is doing a great job in the field of GMP harmonization and made a survey with its members about the most critical deficiencies in the field of GMP.

We all know that we have to improve our quality systems in the pharmaceutical industry. Find out for yourself in today's feature what you have to look out for. Don't miss the chance to challenge your quality systems. Read also about the outcomes of the WHO World Pharmacopeias Meeting in our GMP news.
