Revised Pharmaceutical Auditing monograph published

The quality of medicinal products results from the sum of many activities. End product testing alone is not sufficient to ensure product quality; an overall pharmaceutical quality system is required that builds in the quality. Quality auditing is a key management tool for monitoring and evaluating compliance and the delivery of the pharmaceutical quality system objectives, for driving continual improvement as well as assuring patient safety.

The PQG Pharmaceutical Auditing monograph has been extensively revised and expanded to reflect current regulatory requirements and changes in audit practices arising from developments in information and communications technology and Covid-19 pandemic experiences.

Given that the outcome of an audit depends on both the auditor and auditee, this monograph seeks to equip auditees in addition to being a valuable tool for auditors.  It also covers audit programme management.

The new monograph is available in both printed (A5 wire bound) and electronic (interactive .PDF) versions.  Whichever format you prefer, purchase your copy now from the PQG Shop.  PQG members receive a 20% discount on the base price, so (join first if you need to and) remember to log in as a member before making your purchase.

For optimal functionality it is best to use a PDF Reader for the interactive version, but it also works in a web browser.
