Manufacturers of food, drug, and cosmetic products, as well as their suppliers, distributors, and re-packers, must operate according to current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) as a means to ensure that only safe and effective products are placed on the market. cGMP can encompass organizational leadership and personnel, quality systems, the buildings and facilities, equipment, raw materials, production and process controls, packaging and labeling control, holding and distribution, laboratory controls, complaints and recalls, records and reports, and returned & salvaged products. In each instance, cGMP is more than just a collection of written procedures. It’s a set of well-established practices that have been tailored to the specific business operation which are supported by a written quality manual and written operating procedures. Conformance to cGMP requires oversight and surveillance, including internal audits, of the systems that have been put in place to ensure all are working they way they were intended.
