SOPs for Regulatory Applications for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Collection of 11 videos (with PDFs of slides) from The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection, Henry Stewart Talks on topics such as:

  • Effective SOP Writing
  • Procedural assessments of SOPs to ensure SOPs are logical and meet GXP requirements
  • SOP Training
  • Using process mapping, forms and templates for the production of SOPs

Regulatory Agencies require written procedures for all systems and operations which impact the quality and safety of pharmaceutical products. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) provide the main forum for the documentation of a pharmaceutical company's systems and operations and compliance with GXP such as GCP, GPV, GMP and GLP.
