Continuous Improvement and the Quality System

JAPM with the support of IFC Announces the opening of Registration for a Virtual Workshop:


“Continuous Improvement and the Quality System


The PIC/s GUIDE TO GOOD MANUFACTURING PRACTICE FOR MEDICINAL PRODUCTS PART I refers to ‘Continuous Improvement’ as an integral part of a Quality Management System. It states that “Product realization is achieved by designing, planning, implementing, maintaining and continuously improving a system that allows the consistent delivery of products with appropriate quality attributes”.


This course is designed to provide an overview of the origin of the concept of continuous improvement as it relates to a Quality System and how the concept has evolved over the years. It covers insight into how continuous improvement is integrated into a Pharmaceutical Quality System (PQS) using e.g. Change Management and Risk Management, and how auditors and inspectors can investigate if a company has effectively implemented this for both products and the PQS.
