In this Live Online Training you will have the possibility to learn and intensively discuss how to focus on specific GMP related aspects.


Continuous professional training for auditors and lead auditors is of utmost importance as the authorities expect qualified personal performing audits. And GMP audits of suppliers, contract manufacturers and contract laboratories are a fundamental part of a Quality Management System to assure the quality of a drug product. Only knowledgeable and highly qualified auditors with a profound technical knowledge and good communication skills can guarantee audits that are useful for both the auditing company and the auditee.

Recognising this need for further professional knowledge development, the ECA Academy has set up this Live Online Training as an individual course which is also part of ECA’s Certified GMP Auditor Programme.

Target Group

This Live Online Training is designed for both new and experienced auditors. It can also be seen as an addition to the ECA Course “The GMP-Auditor”.
