Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is described by the World Health Organization as a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product.

The main risks are: unexpected contamination of products, causing damage to health or even death; incorrect labels on containers, which could mean that patients receive the wrong medicine; insufficient or too much active ingredient, resulting in ineffective treatment or adverse effects.

GMP covers all aspects of production; from the starting materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed, written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There must be systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process - every time a product is made.

The manufacture of medicinal products relies upon people and the establishment and maintenance of a satisfactory system of quality assurance. GMP is an essential component of such a system of quality assurance. It therefore follows alll personnel should be aware of the principles of GMP that affect them.
