Key changes to annex 1 cormica


Stay Ahead of the Curve


On August 25, 2022, the European Commission unveiled the highly anticipated revised Annex 1 of EU Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), reshaping the way sterile medicinal products are produced. The countdown to the new standards is on, as these updates come into effect on August 25, 2023, with a minor exception (lyophilizers point, section 8.123) postponed until August 25, 2024.


Adapt and Thrive


The pharmaceutical landscape has evolved since the last Annex 1 update in 2008. Our downloadable PDF will equip you with the knowledge to navigate these changes seamlessly, ensuring compliance with the latest Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and maintaining the highest quality standards.


Key Takeaways:


  1. Quality Risk Management (QRM) Approach: Learn how to implement a holistic manufacturing process that prevents microbial, particulate, and endotoxin/pyrogen contamination in your final product.

  2. Pharmaceutical Quality System (QMS): Explore the role of your PQS in meeting Annex 1 requirements. Discover how to integrate effective risk management systems, ensure expertise in product manufacturing and equipment engineering, and address procedural and equipment failures with suitable corrective and preventive actions.

  3. Holistic Contamination Control Strategy (CCS): Dive into the new CCS approach, covering critical control points, risk management, process validation, preventative maintenance, and more. Ensure your manufacturing facility is a fortress against contamination.
