Good Manufacturing Practice - GMP is a term that is recognized worldwide for the control and management of manufacturing, testing and overall quality control of food and pharmaceutical products. GMPs have been used by the pharmaceutical and healthcare manufacturing industries for over 50 years as a means of assuring that products have the identity, strength, purity and quality that they purport to contain. GMPs are in effect in over 100 countries, and GMP compliance is a pre-requisite to exporting pharmaceuticals between countries. GMP takes quality assurance approach, which ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled according to the quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. It covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. It is believed that GMP is a good business tool, which helps to refine both compliance and performance of the company. GMP requirements are largely common-sense practices, which help companies better themselves as they move toward a quality approach using continuous improvement. GMP regulations require a quality approach to manufacturing, enabling companies to minimize or eliminate instances of contamination, mix-ups, and errors.
