Fundamentals Of Good Manufacturing Practices

Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient and Product Importation

Health Canada GMP Regulations GUI‐0001, GUI-0104


This half day course presents participants with the essential Health Canada Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) requirements for licensed pharmaceutical Importation and Distribution, and is applicable to Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients(APIs), and OverThe‐Counter/Category IV, Prescription and Biological products. All companies with a Drug Establishment Licence in Canada must follow these guidelines. Canadian GMPs are based on the Food and Drugs Act, and are the primary pharmaceutical industry guidance, designed to protect the patient or consumer, and assure the quality of pharmaceutical products.

This assessed and certified course is routinely delivered onsite to Importers and Distributors and is intended to provide participants with the knowledge to complete foundational and ongoing GMP training requirements.

This training also includes a GMP‐relevant understanding of current Health Canada hot topics, describes useful regulatory resources, and addresses proposed changes to the GMP guidance as outlined within the recent industry consultation.
