Learn how to design lean, efficient and compliant Quality and GMP-Systems that will support you in turning your quality goals into reality.


To face regulatory requirements and expectations, pharmaceutical quality systems have been becoming more and more complex over the past years. In many companies, this has lead to a certain inflexibility and inefficiency. But properly implemented, Quality and GMP-Systems will support the manufacture of medicinal products efficiently and without creating a big burden on the company’s resources. Quality related processes, procedures and their related documents should control and support, not constrain the true core competence of pharmaceutical companies: the manufacture of cost effective medicines and APIs at highest quality and in compliance with the regulation.

Quality Managers need to know how to fulfil the regulatory requirements efficiently and how to implement the necessary processes in a lean and cost effective manner that supports efficacy and safety rather than hinders it with unmanageable systems.

Target Group

Managers and Executives from pharmaceutical Quality Management and Assurance, Business Executives and Production Managers and those involved in continuous improvement projects. But also Quality and Business executives from smaller organisations with highly constrained resources
