Following the completion of this course you will gain a basic to moderate knowledge of definition, purpose, importance of GDP, General rules of GDP, GDP as applies to laboratory notebook documentation, US Pharmacopeia General Chapter <1029> introduction "Good Documentation Guidelines", A very brief introduction to European Union (EU) GDP, and finally its enforcement along with some observation samples from FDA.
Why you should attend
Good documentation Practices (GDP) is an essential factor that needs to be closely followed by the personnel in any regulated environment as a process for a successful project completion including observations of unanticipated responses that are required to be accurately recorded and verified.
This one-day workshop covers the essentials of GDP, its definition, purpose, and importance. Then expands on general rules and principles of GDP (US & EU), General tips for Laboratory Notebook documentation and finally discussing GDP enforcement by regulatory bodies in different countries with some examples of FDA citations and warning letters for different points presented in the session. In several occasions, group activities will be presented to find errors in documents based on the information provided in the class.
If you are involved in any product manufacturing, knowing GDP regulations is a must for you. It prevents a lot of errors and minimizes the chance of being spotted by the regulatory bodies in their audits.
