Explanation of "Pharmaceutical Production Quality Management Regulations"


The original Good Manufacturing Practice of "Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Practice" (hereinafter referred to as "Specification") is referred to as GMP. It is the unanimously recognized rule that pharmaceutical companies in the world must follow in the production of drugs, and is a necessary system for pharmaceutical companies to conduct excellent quality management. Its guiding ideology is to use total quality management to ensure the safety, effectiveness, stability, uniformity and quality of drugs, and to ensure that all products meet quality requirements.

One, purpose and meaning
(1) Prevent contamination and quality changes of medicines as much as possible.
(2) Minimize human errors.
(3) Establish a working procedure (quality assurance system) that can guarantee the quality of medicines to the maximum. For this reason, the factories, facilities, equipment, and management necessary for pharmaceutical production must also be considered from these three aspects. The central guiding ideology of GPM is: The quality of any drug is produced, not tested. Therefore, we must emphasize prevention first, establish a quality assurance system in the production process, implement total quality management, and ensure drug quality.
(1) is an effective means to ensure the quality of medicines and a necessary condition for high-quality products.
(2) It is the basis for the government to issue "Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Enterprise License" and "Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Enterprise Certificate" for enterprise quality certification.
(3) Basis for the entry of pharmaceutical products into the international market.
(4) Provide high-quality and trustworthy products for the society and create credibility for the company.
(5) Improve the level of scientific management of enterprises, promote technological progress, improve the quality of personnel, increase economic efficiency, and enhance the competitiveness of enterprises.
2. Background
Medicines are special commodities that are indispensable for prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and adjustment of the body. The quality of medicines is directly related to the health and life safety of the human body. For this reason, the quality, safety, and effectiveness of pharmaceutical products are affected by countries around the world. The requirements have become more stringent. Although the drug manufacturer inspects the finished product in accordance with the regulations, it is unable to conduct full inspection of the drug. Only a limited sampling inspection is used to determine the quality of the drug. The production process such as contamination, mixing, errors, and It is difficult to prevent it by checking after the fact.
GMP was first formulated by some experts in the United States for quality management in the pharmaceutical industry. At that time, it attracted widespread attention from all over the world. In 1963, the U.S. Congress passed and promulgated it as a law. In 1969, the 22nd World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that all member countries adopt the GMP system. When the 28th World Health Assembly was held in 1977, more than 80 member countries expressed their approval to implement it. So far, more than 100 Several countries and regions have implemented GMP systems, and some countries have subsequently formulated GMP implementation regulations.
With the advancement and development of science and technology, in the field of GMP in recent years, countries have been continuously revising, enriching and improving the implementation of GMP. For example, another important development is the emergence of standards published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and the quality system ISO9000 to 9004 series has been implemented. On the basis of absorbing international experience in promoting GMP, my country’s chemical and pharmaceutical industry organized relevant personnel to draft the "Pharmaceutical Production Management Regulations" in the late 1970s. In 1982, the industry’s "Regulations" (trial version) was formulated. On the basis of extensively soliciting opinions from relevant units across the country, the "Guidelines for the Implementation of Drug Production Management Practices" were compiled and issued together with the "Regulations". In May 1986, the State Administration of Medicine issued a document for full implementation in chemical medicine enterprises. In October 1988, the Ministry of Health issued the "Pharmaceutical Production Quality Management Regulations", which will legally urge pharmaceutical companies to implement the "Regulations". This signifies that my country's pharmaceutical production has entered a new stage of comprehensive scientific management, which will definitely contribute to the development of my country's pharmaceutical industry. Play a positive role in promoting. After nearly 10 years of implementation of the "Specifications" and implementation guidelines, they have absorbed advanced international experience, extensively revised them, and added new content to make them more maneuverable. At the same time, the Ministry of Health "Pharmaceutical Production Quality Management Practices" (1992) Revised version) issued. Its content is also closer to the international level.
