Biopro practices Good manufacturing practice in the manufacturing environment. This covers all aspects of production from materials, premises, equipment and training for the staff. This system ensures all products are consistently produced according to the quality standards. Good Manufacturing Practice is a regulation promulgated by the US Food and Drug Administration that requires manufacturers, processors and packagers to take proactive steps to ensure the products are safe, pure and effective. GMP regulations require a quality approach to manufacturing, enabling companies to minimize or eliminate instances of contamination, mix-ups, and errors. This protects the consumer from purchasing a product which is not effective or even dangerous. Failure of firms to comply with GMP regulations can result in very serious consequences including recall, seizure, fines, and jail time. GMP regulations address issues including record keeping, personnel qualifications, sanitation, cleanliness, equipment verification, process validation, and complaint handling. Most GMP requirements are very general and open-ended, allowing each manufacturer to decide individually how to best implement the necessary controls. This provides much flexibility, but also requires that the manufacturer interpret the requirements in a manner which makes sense for each individual business.
