ISO standard: GMP for pharmaceutical packaging materials

21 January 2016

Recently NEN-EN-ISO 15378 was published. This third edition of the standard identifies Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) principles and specifies requirements for a quality management system applicable to primary packaging materials for pharmaceutical products.
The realization of GMP principles in production and control of primary packaging materials within organizations is of great importance for the safety of a patient using the pharmaceutical product, because of their direct product contact. The application of GMP helps ensure that these materials meet the needs and requirements of the pharmaceutical industry (World Packaging Standardisation Newsletter, January 2016).
