Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)
Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product.
GMP covers all aspects of production from the starting materials, premises, and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Detailed written procedures are essential for each process that could affect the quality of the finished product. There must be systems to provide documented proof that correct procedures are consistently followed at each step in the manufacturing process – every time a product is made.
Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)
Good laboratory practice (GLP) is a set of principles intended to assure the quality and integrity of non-clinical laboratory studies that are intended to support research or marketing permits for products regulated by government agencies. The term GLP is most commonly associated with the pharmaceutical industry and the required non-clinical animal testing that must be performed prior to approval of new drug products. However, GLP applies to many other non-pharmaceutical agents such as color additives, food additives, food contamination limits, food packaging, and medical devices
Halal pharmaceuticals are the drugs that contain permissible ingredients and are produced according to Islamic rules and conditions. There are approximately 1.6 billion Muslims in the world which is almost one quarter of the world population. By increasing the Muslim population, the awareness on halal pharmaceuticals has also been increased. Halal products are rapid gaining worldwide recognition as a new benchmark for safety and quality assurance. Now-a-days, halal products are not only focused on food but all the products including pharmaceuticals.
