  • The Americas


The global growth of biologic platforms in the manufacturing of human therapeutic products has placed an increased emphasis on understanding the impact of current Good Manufacturing Practice on facility design and operation. New product and technology platforms are pushing the boundaries of our comfort zone in understanding the impact of the GMPs on facility attributes and risk mitigation.

This training course will help you identify the current global landscape of GMPs and focus on the basis of GMP implementation, risk and impact assessment, product-process-facility attributes, and some general considerations in global GMP guidelines. During this training course, you will use case study examples and interactive exercises to interpret and apply the GMPs on biomanufacturing facility design and operation.


  • Training courses run from 8:30 to 16:00 each day. An agenda will be provided on the first day of the training course.
