Quality Control of Raw Materials (APIs and Excipients)

Duration: 90 Minutes
A number of observations on FDA over the past several years reveal that pharmaceutical firms have not been performing adequate testing for incoming APIs, components and raw materials. The regulatory requirements are defined in the GMPs. Because of recognized problems in the incoming material supply chains, the agency is placing more emphasis on material quality. If you make such observations as your base, it appears that some organizations have chosen to ignore/misinterpret the regulatory expectations.
Quality Control of Raw Materials
Instructor: Peggy J. Berry
Product ID: 505020
As the pharmaceutical industry goes global, it has become more difficult to assure the quality of actives and excipients. The incoming inspection is the last control point before a material is incorporated into the pharmaceutical product. It is important that the pharmaceutical has in place effective systems for ensuring the quality of actives, excipients and components.

In this webinar our speaker Peggy Berry will discuss the regulations within GMPs which apply to the testing and receipt of APIs, excipients as well as other components found in a pharmaceutical product.

Objectives of the Presentation
  • Regulatory requirements needed to test and release APIs, raw materials, excipients and pharmaceutical product components
  • FDA observations related to testing and release of raw materials, excipients and components
  • Regulatory expectations to test and release incoming APIs, raw materials, excipients and pharmaceutical product components
Why Should you Attend
Testing active pharmaceutical ingredients and excipients is one of the main tasks of the quality control units in the pharmaceutical industry. It must be ensured that the necessary tests are conducted on the incoming goods and that the starting materials are released only after their quality was judged as satisfactory.
