The American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) presents a two-hour educational teleseminar titled "Best Practices for Change Control" on June 20, from 1 to 3 p.m. EDT.
The teleseminar, part of the cGMP Compliance Series, will provide information about the process of implementing changes to current good manufacturing practice (cGMP)-related operations and other business systems in a manner that ensures effectiveness and continued compliance with federal regulations covering dietary supplements.
Change control can be applied to any business system, but in a cGMP context it can be applied to:
- Products (formulas, labels, etc.)
- Processes (manufacturing processes, test methods, etc.)
- Equipment and facilities (rooms, utility systems, process equipment, test equipment, instruments, utensils)
- Components and supplies, and vendors thereof
- Software, spreadsheets
- Documents (standard operating procedures (SOPs), master manufacturing records, specification documents, forms, logs, etc.)
"Some changes can be routine and can be controlled by establishing SOPs," said AHPA Chief Operations Officer Devon Powell. "This teleseminar is designed to address more substantial changes, such as installing new manufacturing equipment or significantly changing a manufacturing process, which may need to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis."
Registration is available through June 19 at a cost of $195 for AHPA members and $495 for non-AHPA members. Registration includes one audio connection and a certificate of attendance for training files. Audio recordings and additional attendee certificates will also be available for purchase. For more information and to register, visit the AHPA website.
Other educational seminar proceedings from the AHPA cGMP Compliance Series are available for purchase from the association's online bookstore.
