GMP-compliant Equipment Design - Webinar Recording

Course No. 18052A



Markus Multhauf

Markus Multhauf

Consultant Pharmaceutical Engineering


Compared to systems for the food or semiconductor sector, systems for the manufacture of pharmaceuticals differ in their design, but especially in terms of project management and documentation. However, the current GMP regulations define the actual requirements for these systems or components only very vaguely. The correct interpretation of these requirements can help to avoid processing errors including delays and additional costs, though.
Based on the GMP requirements, this webinar will present technical solutions for the various applications. It will show how the vaguely defined requirements for the design of systems and components, which are used for the production of pharmaceuticals, have to be concretely understood. Significant innovations, e.g. with regard to conducting qualifications, will also be discussed.

Target Group

This webinar addresses staff in plant construction, planning (engineering service providers), production and technology in medicinal products and active ingredients manufacture as well as quality assurance staff dealing with GMP & FDA-compliant projects for the construction or conversion of systems.
