Technical Seminar on Good Manufacturing Practice in Food & Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Industry
Technical Seminar on Good Manufacturing Practice in Food & Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Industry is successfully held on 6 July 2013 (Saturday) in Lecture Theatre G01, The Open University of Hong Kong .
What is Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)?
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) has been adopted in Hong Kong since 2002 to facilitate regulation of the western drug manufacturing industry and ensure the quality and safety of pharmaceutical products. Many countries have legislated that pharmaceutical and medical device companies must follow GMP procedures, and have created their own GMP guidelines that correspond with their legislation. The GMP is also adopted in cosmetic manufacturing industries.
World Health Organization (WHO) defined that Food Safety must be addressed along the entire food chain by measures based on sound scientific information at both national and international levels.
In this seminar, the speakers have shared their experience how they implemented the GMP and the latest food testing technology.
