SP6510: GMP – What You Need To Know According To PIC/S Guide To GMP Version 14 (PE 009-14)

Date posted: 22 June 2020

Event date: 20 and 21 July 2020

If you’re responsible for any part of pharmaceutical product quality or GMP compliance, you must understand your legal and ethical obligations.  To understand your obligations, you must understand the regulatory environment as well as the intent and requirements of a Pharmaceutical Quality System and current Good Manufacturing Practices as defined by PIC/S.

Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) will be adopting version 14 of the PIC/S Guide to Good Manufacturing Practice for Medicinal Products (PE009-14) for medicines, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and sunscreens commencing on the 1st July 2020. In the announcement, the TGA stated that “manufacturers are encouraged to commence preparations … in anticipation of the adoption of the PIC/S Guide to GMP PE009-14.”

To support TGA-regulated organisations, SeerPharma has updated its GMP – What You Need to Know training course to address the current PIC/S GMP Guide (PE 009-14). This course will help by stepping you through each chapter and common appendix of version 14 of the PIC/S Guide to GMP for Medicinal Products Part I, including the key changes from version 13. Using case studies and examples drawn from industry and consulting experience, you will learn the requirements and how they are applied to your manufacturing environment(s), with a focus on ensuring product quality and the prevention of adulteration and misbranding.
