According to the Department of Health, Current Good Manufacturing Practice or cGMP is a key factor for industries to produce good quality, safe and affordable products.

Likewise, the World Health Organization states that cGMP is the aspect of quality assurance that ensures that medicinal products are consistently produced and controlled to the quality standards appropriate to their intended use and as required by the product specification.

GMP defines quality measures for both production and quality control and defines general measures to ensure that processes necessary for production and testing are clearly defined, validated, reviewed, and documented, and that the personnel, premises and materials are suitable for the production of pharmaceuticals and biologicals including vaccines.

GMP also has legal components, covering responsibilities for distribution, contract manufacturing and testing, and responses to product defects and complaints.

Specific GMP requirements relevant to classes of products such as sterile pharmaceuticals or biological medicinal products are provided in a series of annexes to the general GMP requirements. (PIA NCR)
