What is a GMP audit checklist?

Manufacturers in all fields use a GMP audit checklist for conducting inspections to decide whether their manufacturing practices comply with the standards or not. Only if they do, the company gets a GMP-certification.

Obviously, the standards depend on the area. There are guidelines for the food, medical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical field, to name some of them. In each area, a GMP covers all aspects and parts of production and pays attention to all possible risks and hazards. As a result, manufacturers should not have any problems with product safety since they inspected and eliminated failures before they bring their products on to the market.

Use a manufacturing process audit checklist to implement good manufacturing practices and give your consumers the best they can get!

The 7 GMP principles

To comply with the GMP you should follow the following 7 principles in your checklists:

1. Procedures

Your first step should be to develop procedures for your production that have to be followed throughout the company. The procedure’s goal is always to produce products with good quality. To avoid misunderstandings, the steps should be clearly defined and as detailed as possible.

2. Documentation

Documenting the work is a fundamental way to keep track of the production, e.g. the amount of products per day or the amount of defect products. Equipment that was faulty and needed to be repaired also needs to be documented.

3. Facilities and Equipment

The safety of facilities and equipment has to be permanently guaranteed. To obtain a good product, the inputs as well as the equipment have to be in a good state as well. To reach that, facilities and equipment have to be maintained regularly.

4. Prevent Contamination

Obviously a good product should show no evidence of contamination. But how can you achieve that? First, the workplace should always be kept clean. Also make sure that the product is stored appropriately. Depending on the product, other measures may be necessary.

5. Job Competence

Only qualified workers should be hired for that job. Also, make sure that your employees get adequate training in case of any changes within the organisation or equipment.

6. Quality Control

To make sure quality is maintained, controls are needed. Observe all the areas in the manufacturing process and the facilities by placing controls all over them.

7. Audits

Furthermore, regular audits must be performed to make sure everything is in place and working correct. The audits should include all of the above sections of the company. Those audits help you to identify whether your manufacturing complies with the GMP regulations.

The Advantages of a digital GMP Audit Checklist

A GMP audit can be very long and can have multiple pages: Keeping track of all that can be difficult, especially when you have thousands of documents. The perfect solution: digital checklists! Have all of them with you on your mobile device and spare some time.
