COVID-19 Pandemic Alters Conventional Approach of Good Manufacturing Practice Inspection

T. Kolonić, M. Bencetić Marijanović and S. Tomić


Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a set of different guidelines, rules and standards that guarantee effectiveness, quality, safety and consistency in manufacturing and quality control of medicinal products. To maintain consistency in inspection standards, HALMED has in place a Quality Manual developed according to European guidelines. The Agency inspectors are trained and experienced accordingly, and are permanently educated. After an inspection has been completed, HALMED issues a manufacturing license and a GMP certificate for manufacturers located in the Republic of Croatia or a GMP certificate for manufacturers from third countries. Due to the pandemic situation that prevents inspectors to travel to manufacturing sites abroad, they proceed with the distant assessment of manufacturers.
