About This Course

Advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) are an emerging class of innovative medicines, whose properties make them very different from traditional pharmaceutical medicines. They bring new, complex challenges in terms of storage, handling and maintaining a chain of custody from raw material to patient.

We help you to navigate these challenges in complying with the stand-alone guidelines on Good Manufacturing Practice specific to ATMPs as published in November 2017.

This interactive course, led by a tutor who has extensive experience working with ATMP products, provides an overview of ATMPs including the different types and their manufacture, QC testing, logistical requirements, batch record review and the QP certification and release process. We also provide an overview of the governing legislation and GMP requirements in force. Throughout the course, the typical challenges involved with the manufacturing, testing, QP certification and transportation of ATMPs is covered, including the challenges involved in certifying and releasing ATMPs with short shelf lives.

If you choose our virtual learning option, training is delivered via a combination of an instructor-led virtual classroom and self-paced learning online. Full details will be sent to you following registration.
