During this course, you will learn all relevant aspects to conduct and to improve your system of the Batch Record Review. Furthermore, you will get to know possibilities and tools to increase efficiency and decrease costs at your company.


The Batch Record Review is an essential tool for assuring the quality of a pharmaceutical process.

Various regulations and guidelines address this topic for the pharmaceutical industry and it is a very important step before a product can be released by a Qualified
Person. However, over the years, documentation has
become more and more extensive and the review can
be very time-consuming.

Furthermore, many observations made in inspections
relate directly to the review of documents. This fact clearly demonstrates the importance and challenge of implementing a GMP/FDA-compliant Batch Record

During this Education Course, experts from the pharmaceutical and API industry will cover all relevant aspects helping you to improve your batch record review. An optimised batch record review will also enable you to improve your process capabilities.
