Why are packaging related errors still one of the greatest causes of recalls?
This highly interactive four-day pharmaceutical packaging training course is designed to answer that question. It provides aspiring Qualified Persons and other pharmaceutical professionals with the knowledge and understanding they need to manage, oversee, control or audit all aspects of packaging activities. Topics range from the regulatory requirements for packaging and control of packaging components to the design of packaging lines/process and distribution of medicines.
Take ideas for improvement back to your workplace. Our QP pharmaceutical packaging course covers all important aspects of the packing process and their associated Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and pharmaceutical quality system (PQS) challenges. This includes selection of suitable materials, pack design, pack security and design/control of packing processes. From starting components to patient, our course provides a detailed review of the supply chain so you can design your ideal packaging department that is ready for inspection.
This course is approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry as suitable for its members’ continuing professional development.
