With the GMP Search Engine, the ECA website offers you a powerful search engine because the GMP Search Engine searches internal GMP databases as well as specially selected websites on the Internet. We have programmed the search engine so that it searches the most important GMP websites, e.g. those of FDA, ICH, EC and PIC. Please enter the keyword (e.g. 'Validation', 'API') and select the search area. As soon as you click 'Start', the relevant websites will be searched. You thus obtain an individual collection of GMP information which you will not get anywhere else.
If FDA has published a new GMP-related comment somewhere on its website, the GMP Search Engine will find this comment, because it searches the GMP-related part of the FDA site.
What is deliberately ignored is that part that deals with topics like food (e.g. FDA and EG DG Enterprise web pages also contain food regulations) or with exclusively sales-oriented information. Thus you get filtered GMP information.
If you are looking for a particular guidance document, just enter a meaningful part of the title, e.g. "Q9" or "Risk Management", since a deviation from the correct title can lead to the desired guideline not being found. Please also leave out the name of the issuing authority (e.g. FDA, EMEA). Example: In case you would like to find the "FDA Guideline for Industry Sterile Drug Products Produced by Aseptic Processing", simply enter "Aseptic Processing".
