Good Manufacturing Practice, also known as GMP, is a regulation that guides the production and quality management of food, medicine, and medical products. It is a set of mandatory standards applicable to the pharmaceutical, food, and other industries. It requires companies to meet the hygienic quality requirements in accordance with relevant national regulations in terms of raw materials, personnel, facilities and equipment, production processes, packaging and transportation, and quality control.
The main purpose of Good Manufacturing Practice is to ensure that manufacturers, processors, and packagers of drugs, medical devices, some food, and blood take proactive steps to ensure that their products are safe, pure, and effective.
Why is Good Manufacturing Practice Important?
Poorly made products, especially health products like pharmaceuticals could cause a major health hazard. Some examples include poor-quality medicines that may contain toxic substances that have been unintentionally added while medicines that contain little or none of the claimed ingredient will not have the intended therapeutic effect.
Good Manufacturing Practice is designed to ensure that mistakes do not occur or are minimised. Furthermore, implementation of Good Manufacturing Practice is an investment in good quality medicines. Thus, this will improve the health of the individual patient and the community while also benefitting the pharmaceutical industry and health professionals. Manufacturing and distributing poor quality medicines would also lead to a loss of credibility for everyone: both public and private health care and the manufacturer.
What are some products that require GMP certification?
As aforementioned, it is applicable to pharmaceutical, food, and some other industries. An example of a product that requires GMP Certification would be hand sanitizers.
Hand sanitizers are products in high demand during this #Covid-19 pandemic. FDA regulates hand sanitizers (antiseptic hand wash products) as over the counter (OTC) drug products. This is because they are drug products that are used to prevent the spread of viruses and diseases. Therefore, hand sanitizer products must comply with FDA’s drug regulations.
