Good Manufacturing Practice is the part of quality management which ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled according to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use and as required by the marketing authorization, clinical trial authorization or product specification. Good Manufacturing practices conference aims at both production and QC. Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) is aimed primarily at managing and minimizing the risks inherent in pharmaceutical manufacture to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of products. FDA regulates the quality of pharmaceuticals very carefully. Current Trends in the FDA is the main regulatory standard for ensuring pharmaceutical quality.

Roles of pharmaceutical inspection convention and co-operation scheme (PIC/S) are to improve co-operation in the field of Good Manufacturing Practices between regulatory authorities and the pharmaceutical industry. The FDA regulations and CFR are responsible for protecting and promoting public health through the regulation and supervision of all the products available in the market to ensure patient compliance. EU-GMP guidelines are needed to maintain the quality which is stricter when compared to WHO-GMP guidelines.

cGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the US FDA. cGMPs provide for systems that assure proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities. Adherence to the cGMP regulations assures the identity, strength, quality, and purity of drug products by requiring that manufacturers of medications adequately control manufacturing operations. This includes establishing strong quality management systems, obtaining appropriate quality raw materials, establishing robust operating procedures, detecting and investigating product quality deviations, and maintaining reliable testing laboratories.

The CGMP requirements were established to be flexible in order to allow each manufacturer to decide individually how to best implement the necessary controls by using scientifically design, processing methods, and testing procedures. The flexibility in these regulations allows companies to use modern technologies and innovative approaches to achieve higher quality through continual improvement. Accordingly, the "C" in CGMP stands for "current," requiring companies to use technologies and systems that are up-to-date in order to comply with the regulations. Systems and equipment that may have been "top-of-the-line" to prevent contamination, mix-ups, and errors 10 or 20 years ago may be less than adequate by today's standards.

The role of ICH in designing GCP principles is to provide an ethical treatment to the subjects who are involved in the clinical trials. Conference on GCP is important because it is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for designing, conducting, recording and reporting trials that involve the participation of human subjects. The GLP Principles describe requirements for and provide general guidance on the conduct of all nonclinical health and environmental safety studies, including invitro studies. Pre-clinical trials assess the toxicity of a drug and examine its potential effects on the human body. These trials are conducted in-vitro which is required to proceed with clinical trials. Good laboratory practices should be followed for these pre-clinical trials.

Quality control (QC) is a procedure or set of procedures intended to ensure that a manufactured product or performed service adheres to a defined set of quality criteria that meets the requirements of the client or customer. A major aspect of quality control is the establishment of well-defined controls. These controls help standardize both production and reactions to quality issues. The role of Quality Impact Assessment & effectiveness checks is an essential operation of the pharmaceutical industry. To Perform Quality Control process of Project Management several quality control tools and software’s are required. Quality control also plays a major role in analytical method development so it would be great to attend the quality control summit.

Quality assurance is defined as a procedure or set of procedures intended to ensure that a product or service under development meets specified requirements. A quality assurance system is said to increase customer confidence and a company's credibility, to improve work processes and efficiency, and to enable a company to better compete with others. Quality assurance conferences aims at the need for Effective Internal and External Quality Assurance Auditing and it is required, by all active pharmaceutical ingredient (API)/bulk pharmaceutical chemical, medical device and finished pharmaceutical cGMP regulations published worldwide.

Traditional role of Contract manufacturing, also known as outsource manufacturing, is to produce one or more components of a final product in which a company relies on the skills of specialist manufacturers. Six Sigma is a long-term, forward-thinking initiative designed to fundamentally change the way corporations do business. It is first and foremost "a business process that enables companies to increase profits dramatically by streamlining operations, improving quality, and eliminating defects or mistakes in everything a company does. Aseptic/sterile production and injectable manufacturing processes require a significant investment in terms of expertise, equipment, process, technology and quality control.

Cold chain storage is a temperature-controlled supply chain. An unbroken cold chain is an uninterrupted series of storage and distribution activities which maintain a given temperature range. It is used to help extend and ensure the shelf life of pharmaceutical drugs. Good distribution practice (GDP) deals with the guidelines for the proper distribution of medicinal products for human use. GDP is a quality warranty system, which includes requirements for purchase, receiving, storage and export of drugs intended for human consumption. Supply Chain integrity, enable qualified firms to expedite the importation of active pharmaceutical ingredients and finished drug products.

The Quality control in typical food processing has a significant role in assuming a high quality, safe and nutritious food supply for the public, for their good health and for the economic benefits derived from trade of safe and high quality food. Quality control conference also plays a major role in food industry. Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product. Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act is a set of laws giving authority to the US-FDA to oversee the safety of food, drugs, and cosmetics. Cleaning, disinfection and hygiene should be strictly maintained in food industry.

The use of GMP software systems in regulated industries is vital throughout all aspects of the manufacturing process. Quality management software provides a flexible and configurable platform for tracking and managing quality and compliance events to ensure that manufacturing activities are continually measured, monitored and improved upon.  In addition to managing all aspects of the audit process, GMP software solution manages the associated findings or observations, corrective and preventive actions (CAPAs), risk assessments, risk management and the analysis and approvals of changes. This software also manages deviations, process validation, complaint handling, manufacturing incidents, training records and more.

Excipients play an important role in formulating a dosage form. These are the ingredients which along with Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients make up the dosage forms. Excipients act as protective agents, bulking agents and can also be used to improve bioavailability of drugs in some instances, Excipients affect the physicochemical characters of the active pharmaceutical ingredient which may lead to formation of molecular complexes, increase in rate of chemical degradation etc
