GMP Annual Training-Exploring Good Manufacturing Practices Updates and FDA Regulatory Expectations

Wednesday, February 23 2011, 8:00am - 5:00pm (Eastern Time) Register Here Forms Registration Form Annual Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) updates are required by the FDA to assure facility personnel maintain a current understanding of regulatory requirements. These regulations utilize 21 CFR Parts 210/211 as the basis for understanding; however, many other documents to include FDA's Guidance(s) for Industry, and various other policies, to include ICH Q8, Q9 and Q10, enhance the basis for these updates and regulatory expectations.
