GMP Certification Course
Good manufacturing practices (GMPs) are the practices required in order to conform to the guidelines recommended by agencies that control authorization and licensing for manufacture and sale of food, drug products, and active pharmaceutical products. For food industry, GMPs are the basic principles of operation a food processor should follow to produce a consistent, quality food product and are the basis of HACCP pre-requisite programs. GMPs covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises and
equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. These regulations, which have the force of law, require that manufacturers, processors, and packagers of food, drugs, medical devices, and blood take proactive steps to ensure that their products are safe, pure, and effective. This in turn, protects the consumer from purchasing a product which is not effective or even dangerous. Detailed documentations that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process - every time a product is made. Knowledge and experiences of GMPs turn to be basic requirement for both employer and employee in food industry.
Canadian College of Food and Health (CCFH) also offers classroom training and online GMPs training.
Why take GMPs training?
General GMPs inspections are carried out by regulatory bodies such as CFIA, FDA or EMA, to assess the degree of conformity to prescribed standards of good manufacturing practices and to assess compliance with the relevant regulatory requirements, for example, licence provisions. Most professionals working in organisations that must be GMPs compliant are expected to be able to provide an individual or group certificate as a proof of compliance.
