What is a GMP Audit?
Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) audit is an audit carried out to ensure that the products are consistently produced and controlled according to the quality standards appropriate for their intended use and conform to the regulatory requirements stipulated by health authorities.
The manufacturing conditions of products such as medicines, cosmetics, food or medical equipment, which have significant impacts on human health, must meet Good Manufacturing Practices System standards. Hygiene conditions must always be ensured in production.
GMP is a standard that includes protective measures for internal and external conditions related to the organization in order to prevent or reduce the possibility of contamination of the product from internal and external sources.
