Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
Basic Course Biotechnology (English)


Knowing and applying the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations is one of the key elements in the manufacture of medicinal products for clinical trials and on an industrial level. 

This course concentrates on GMP requirements regarding biopharmaceutical and Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMP) manufacturing.

During the course, the most important elements of GMP will be explained in an easy-to-understand way with reference to the relevant GMP regulations and examples of how regulatory requirements are transferred into practice.

The course will include some workshop elements where trainees will develop GMP compliant solutions (e.g. risk assessments, equipment qualification) together with the trainer.

According to local law (§ 11 Berliner Bildungsurlaubsgesetzes BiUrlG) the course can be classed as educational leave.
