EIPG Training Course: Annex 1

, , , , , , , , , ,

Dear colleagues,

I am very pleased to announce the GMP/Annex 1 Professional Training Course which will be held as 8 webinars of about 2 hours each from the 3rd of April to the 29th of May (one module per week except 1st of May).

EIPG took care of defining the training plan, which is divided into 8 modules covering the entire contents of GMP/Annex 1, and the identification of the trainers who are all highly qualified professionals with specific experience in sterile medicinal products manufacture and control.

EIPG agreed with all trainers that for each module, the text of a few chapters/paragraphs of Annex 1 be presented, explained and commented focusing on the critical requirements and describing the implementation solutions with examples.

A Q&A section will be open as a chat during the training module and all trainers will ensure the presence of time slots for replying to the questions.

EIPG has found MakingLife Srl, an Italian innovative communication company, as a qualified partner to entrust all organizational, technical and commercial features for making this EIPG training course possible.
