What is Good Automated Manufacturing Practice GAMP?

Good Automated Manufacturing Practice GAMP

 

The Good Automated Manufacturing Practice GAMP is a group of guidelines to perform implementations and validations following the System Development Life Cycle SDLC..  It was created by ISPE to address FDA and other regulatory agency expectations for computerized system compliance and validation. In addition, the GAMP® Good Automated Manufacturing Practice GAMP is recognized globally by regulated companies and their suppliers and are widely supported by regulatory agencies.

For example, the GAMP® 5: A Risk-Based Approach to Compliant GxP Computerized Systems provides practical industry guidance that aims to achieve compliant computerized systems that are fit for intended use in an efficient and effective manner, while also enabling innovation and technological advances.

GAMP® guidance aims to achieve computerized systems that are fit for the intended use and meet current regulatory requirements, by building upon existing industry good practice in an efficient and effective manner.

GAMP Good Practice Guides are a series of documents providing practical guidance on the implementation of different applications in the industry.

This guidance may be applied to both new and existing GxP regulated computerized systems.
