The "GMP REPORT" is a new publication series. It is published in English language. The reports support the implementation of current GMP guidelines in pharmaceutical operations. There are no fixed publishing intervals or periods; as a rule, two volumes per year are issued.

Please note: The GMP Report is not an ECA publication. However, ECA supports this series as we believe that a European publication in the field of GMP Compliance has been missing for many years. The GMP REPORT is published by ECV · Editio Cantor Verlag, Aulendorf (Germany). Your purchase order will be forwarded to and effected by the ECV.

A working risk evaluation system is a key element of drug safety. This is valid for industry as well as for licensing and inspecting authorities.

Risk assessment is a legal obligation. The state of the art is discussed on international level and is laid down in GMP guidelines which have to be observed by all involved parties.

In German QA documents for competent authorities these principles were transferred into SOPs for inspectors.
Pharmacovigilance and pharmaceutical-technical procedures are subject to a risk assessment system. Indications and drug characteristics have an influence on potential risks of the particular measures. During the production process QA systems and periodic quality reviews ensure that each product and each process is assessed continuously.

Inspectorates are subjected to inspection planning and the conduction of inspections according to a risk assessment system. Failure evaluation and corrective actions are risk orientated
