Audit Preparation with Consideration to GMP and ICH Requirements
As of 30th October 2005 EU law mandated manufacturers of medicinal and veterinary products for sale in the EU to use only APIs that have been produced in compliance with GMP (ICHQ7a). It is important that API production facilities operating under different national and international regulatory authorities not be required to meet diverse standards. For this reason, an Expert Working Group in ICH developed the ICH-Q7 document as a single standard that all suppliers must apply to production of APIs used in human drug products manufactured in any of the ICH signatory regions.
