2016 has seen the significant update to Annex 16 of the EU GMP Guide and the roles and responsibility of the Qualified Person (QP). This continues to add to the importance of the QP in the assurance of safety, quality and efficacy of medicines. QPs and Regulators are working to the new requirements and please contact MQA if we can support your implementation.

In addition there has been continued focus by regulators on quality, GMP and data integrity compliance both inside and outside the EU. The importance of API GMP and GDP across pharmaceutical supply chains is another area of focus for QPs in all operations.

MQA have been active in auditing and training in 2016 in personal care operations and the application of ISO 22716. Please contact us if you require assistance for these audits.
