What is involved?

We will send you a link to the live online interactive course with your joining instructions once you have booked your place. 

You should log into the training session 10-15 minutes before the start time, to ensure that you have set up the courseware  correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and be seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

I found the interaction very good by using the chat option as it keeps everyone interested and there was a variety of questions and answers.

Quality / EHS Specialist, DCC VITAL

Great course, although it was virtual I felt we got the same value for money as if it was F2F, a 10 out of 10!!! I will recommend to colleagues

Quality Executive, ABPI

The GMP course was ran very well. Both presenters were very knowledgeable in the area, both for the EU and other countries. I would highly recommend this course to those who are new to the area of GMP, as well as those who just need a bit of a refresher.

Must, Shall and Should – the use of these words in GMP

What is the difference in meaning between these words in the context of GMP?, In this post I explain, using EU GMP as my point of reference, although as you will find out, there are occasions within EU GMP where the incorrect terms have been used.

Data Integrity – why all the fuss?

The careful and secure control of data and records has become a hot topic at regulatory inspections recently. One reason for this is the increased use of computer systems to hold data in one form or another. Let me give you an example of how keeping data accessible can become problematic with a non-pharmaceutical example from my own childhood.
