The Biologicals Manufacturing Division (BMD) of RITM, through its Quality Assurance (QA) Department, conducted the Intermediate-Level Training on Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) at the RITM Auditorium on August 13 to 14, 2019.
All BMD personnel and selected VRD personnel attended the training led by the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) Philippines. Three resource experts were invited for the two-day training: Pharmaceutical Quality and Compliance Consultant Pura Averilla; Pharmacist and Vice President for Manufacturing EL Laboratories Ma. Rosario Barangan; and Engineer from Quest Technology Singapore for Cleanroom Testing Engr. Ramiro Espiritu.
For two days, the participants took part in lectures and discussions on Pharmaceutical Quality System, Documentation, Cold Chain, Sterile Manufacturing, and Maintenance of Sterile Facilities.
BMD-QA facilitated the cGMP training in a bid to strengthen quality culture among staff and to encourage both technical and non-technical personnel to continually improve performance and practice of functions. The training also paved the way for other training collaborations with ISPE Philippines for BMD.
