Lasting Trend Topics: Integrated Qualification, Data Integrity and More. GMP Experts from gempex Provide Information at LOUNGES

For gempex, 2018 will continue to be defined to a large extent by current issues in the areas of qualification and IT validation. With profound and current know-how in their pocket, the GMP experts are looking forward to challenging tasks on behalf of their customers.

At LOUNGES in Karlsruhe, the GMP experts from gempex are not only offering insights into various projects during the real life presentations, reporting about possible problems, and simultaneously delivering corresponding proposed solutions, but are also available for personal exchanges. For example on the topic of “integrated qualification”.

Everyone who has come into contact with qualification knows that it is one of the most important quality assurance tools. It is also known to be associated with a lot of effort, paper, and costs. Requirements and contract specifications, FAT and SAT, functional and detailed specifications, collaboration across department boundaries and signature requirements – countless documents and time-consuming coordination contribute to the ultimate view of qualification as a project blocker. Calls for reducing the cost keep getting louder. Efficiency needs to be improved at the same time. All this with no loss of quality please. It that possible?

In a sense the solution appears obvious: taking qualification into account from the outset, starting with a project’s engineering phase. That sounds simple, yet harbours perils of its own. Not to mention that the issue is certainly not new, but mountains of paperwork due to formalistic reasons and the involvement of numerous technical disciplines are increasingly blurring the boundaries. A clear assignment of activities and documents between good engineering practices and good manufacturing practices therefore needs to be established. The GMP experts at gempex know where to set the limits here, what commitments considerably reduce the effort on both sides, and how to realise a successful implementation. They are able to offer a lot of useful tips.
