GMP Compliance

Explanations and definitions of the qualification

Efficacy, identity and purity are quality requirements that are placed on products from the GMP-regulated environment. The term GMP ("Good Manufacturing Practice") is used to summarise the quality assurance requirements of national and international regulations and laws such as the EU GMP guidelines, AMG and AMWHV. They primarily concern the production of drugs (pharmaceutical industry) and related products in the fields of medical technology and life sciences.
The qualification is part of the GMP requirements. It is the documented proof that a device/plant is suitable for the intended purpose and fulfils the specified functions. Qualification also proves that the products produced permanently comply with the regulations and standards - in other words, that they are GMP-compliant. The specific requirements for qualification and validation are defined in the EU GMP guidelines Annex 15.

Elements of a GMP qualification:

  • Design qualification (DQ, Design Qualification),  
  • Installation Qualification (IQ),  
  • Operational Qualification (OQ) and
  • Performance Qualification (PQ).

In the qualification master plan, the individual qualification objects are defined and the qualification steps are determined and planned. The master plan is a superordinate document that reflects the qualification strategy and the organizational structure in general.
All qualification steps are backed up by documentation that is fundamental for audits by the authorities and indispensable for obtaining a manufacturer's license. Following a qualification, a validation is carried out, for example, for manufacturing, transport or cleaning processes. Analytical methods or computer and software systems are also validated.
