This pharmaceutical training course is designed to provide existing auditors with the necessary technical detail to enable them to effectively audit a Quality Control (QC) chemical laboratory to ensure that both EU and FDA GMP requirements are met. It is ideal for delegates who have either previously attended NSF-DBA’s IRCA certified Pharmaceutical Quality Management Systems Auditor/Lead Auditor course or who already have a good understanding of the basic principles and practices of auditing and wish to expand their technical understanding of good QC laboratory practice. The course can also contribute to registered Auditors’ and Lead Auditors’ professional requirement for continued professional development (CPD).

This pharmaceutical training course will also be ideal for personnel who work within a QC chemical laboratory and who wish to learn how to conduct comprehensive self-inspections.
