GMP Question and Answer Guide „GMP Advisor“

GMP Advisor Q&A

Searching for concrete answers to GMP questions is a time-consuming activity. The document we now offer is intended to provide a single source of information. We have summarized GMP questions and answers from regulators around the world.

In addition to EMA, FDA, Health Canada, MHRA (UK), TGA (Australia) and ICH, we have also used Q&As from ECA. The subject index of the document contains some of the “GMP Key Words” and enables the finding of Q&As addressing the relevant topic. It is intended to update this comprehensive collection and to also add new Q&As once they are available.

The document is structured into the 4 main GMP areas: General GMPs (applicable to medicinal products, APIs and IMPs), GMP for Medicinal Products, GMP for APIs and GMP for Investigational Medicinal Products (IMPs). In addition, it is indicated which organization has issued the Question and Answers.
