Digital World

The aim of regulatory standards is to minimise danger for patients and maximise product quality and safety through compliance. For instance, the EU’s EudraLex Volume 4 Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines and the FDA’s 21 CFR Parts 210 and 211 describe the best production practices for medicinal products. Furthermore, EudraLex Annex 11 and 21 CFR Part 11 lay down the demands for computerised systems used as part of GMP-regulated activities. These systems are expected to be validated (the GMP-application) and respectively qualified (the GMP-IT infrastructure).

Official Industry Standards

How a pharmaceutical company goes about ensuring that the IT requirements for operational reliability, stability, business support and product quality are met is up to them, but major industry standards are pragmatic and can be used to conform to the law. Some of these are highlighted below:

GAMP 5
The International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering’s Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP®) 5: A risk-based approach to compliant GxP computerised systems is the de facto voluntary standard for businesses active in regulated industries such as pharma, biotechnology, medical technology and their associated suppliers. GAMP 5 guidance provides a pragmatic and effective framework for achieving computerised systems that are fit for intended use and meet current requirements.

The Impact of Components on Drug Quality and Risk Mitigation

West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc.

Expectations for quality by regulatory agencies are increasing at a very fast pace, especially for prefilled drug delivery formats, thanks to increased focus on reducing risk to patient safety. The trend has resulted in delays for new drug applications, more recalls of marketed products and even drug shortages if the container system and drug contents are suspect for quality issues. The pharmaceutical market is now requiring manufacturers of containers and components to meet new expectations with a quality culture and very high product reliability. The need to bridge the gap and provide superior quality products has been a driver for manufacturing technology investments, more robust control strategies and the introduction of next generation elastomer components.
