Auditing is an important task and responsibility of cultivation companies, manufacturers, distributors, quality control laboratories, and warehouse/logistics providers to regularly monitor the GxP compliance and serves as an improvement tool.  

Audits include self-inspections, but also external audits of service providers (e.g. CMO and/or QC labs) as well as suppliers of active pharmaceutical ingredients and other products/materials, where audits can play an important role in the qualification process.   

Since an audit is a systematic, independent and documented process for obtaining evidence and a respective objective assessment (with a view to determining the extent to which the audit criteria are met), it needs to be well planned, prepared and executed, and afterwards correctly and objectively evaluated and reported.  

In the first 3 training modules, the goal is to provide the basic/general tools for conducting all kinds of audits and to offer in-depth insights into the practice of auditing:  

Module 1 – GxP audit: Basic Knowledge and Methods  
Module 2 – Planning and Execution of GxP Audits 
Module 3 – After the Audit: Evaluation, Report and Final Closure
