  • GxP Quality Management

    GxP-compliant quality management systems: Key to efficient and faultless operation

    Ensure the quality of your products by setting up a QMS. Valicare's experts will support you with QM consulting, document preparation & implementation.

    To ensure the proper quality of pharmaceutical and biotechnological products, numerous sets of rules of Good Practices (GxP), have been published.

    They cover a wide range of areas to ensure the safety of medicinal products, such as:

    • Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)
    • Good Clinical Practice (GCP)
    • Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)
    • Good Distribution Practice (GDP)

    All these regulations require a dedicated quality management system for the respective companies.

    The QMS must cover:

    • General quality assurance measures (e.g. training or self-inspection)
    • Individual procedural instructions for the company-specific activities

    The quality management system is adapted to the company

    Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) as well as all supplementary quality management documents (QMS) should be optimally tailored to each other and to the company's organization to enable efficient and faultless work in accordance with the respective rules.

    The relevant supervisory authority checks the legally compliant design of your QMS and can only grant your company a permission for the activity in question if all processes are described in compliance with the regulations.

    Professional support to create and implement your GxP-compliant QMS

    Our GMP/GxP experts keep you on the safe side. We offer professional support in the implementation of GxP-compliant quality management systems.

    You can commission us with the comprehensive conception and document creation for your QMS or have our experts accompany or implement the processing of individual focal points.

  • GMP Concept

    Key to efficient and error-free operation

    GMP concepts describe general procedures for quality assurance tools essential for operation of a GMP system.

    This comprises a multitude of documents like work instructions, standard operating procedures, concepts for training, qualification, validation, deviation and change control management, handling of OOS results, self-inspections and much more.

    As these documents are the key to an efficient and error free operation of the GMP unit, they should fit to each other and to the size of the customer side. An essential prerequisite for the efficient and practical application of the quality assurance tools is the deep knowledge about options and variation.

    This and the exact description of the requirements and processes allows the adequate adaption of the tools to the real need of your GMP system.

    Two options of GMP concept creation

    We offer two different approaches to implement GMP concepts:

    1. Consulting service: Our consultant will evaluate your individual case and provide you with an expert assessment.
    2. Extensive preparation of instructions: Our experts create comprehensive instructions for all necessary quality assurance tools.

    Get in contact with us now and tell us in which steps of GMP concept development you need support. We will promptly provide you with an offer for consulting services or creation of a concept. Together we find the ideal solutions for your project!

  • GMP Design Review

    Review of planned and existing installations

    Design review is a well-established GMP consultancy service. By this procedure planned or already built technical equipment and installations are approved on quality by design criteria, suitability and GMP compliance.

    The normal scope of a design review could range from viewing a single room or a whole facility. Besides GMP compliance the production capacity and customers product spectrum play a substantial role in the evaluation process.

    Our experienced consultants have already executed countless design reviews in over 20 years.


    Design review consultancy in all modes

    We can therefore offer you this consulting service in each mode usual in the market. The design review can often be carried out without a corresponding on-site presence, solely based on the technical documentation about the general and detailed planning of an installation.

    Within Valicare GmbH and through the strong cooperation with our parent company Syntegon comprehensive competencies about classical pharmaceutical and biotechnological production lines also for advanced therapy medicinal products and special pharmaceutical, exist.

    Document preparation and presentation

    Commonly the design review set up is prepared by one GMP consultant. The documents then are checked and evaluated in presentation mode by two or three experts.

    In a protocol or a report of that discussion customer will get detailed descriptions of any inconsistencies or deviations observed. Also, the provided technical and organizational concepts were followed and scrutinized on the basis of known or defined process parameters.

    All discussions will be closed results-orientated, and all issues will be evaluated and documented in detail. As a customer, you will receive the report of the discussion. Presentation of the results in front of other corporate representatives is possible on demand.

  • Gap Analysis

    Gap analysis: comparison between current and target state

    Gap analysis is a classical consulting tool to align the current with the target status. It relates either to the entire GMP system of a regulated company or to individual subareas.

    This includes for example, qualification, validation and deviation or change management. The Gap analysis is an active comparison of the established current state with the requirements specified by local or international GMP regulations.

    The definition of the scope to be analyzed is the responsibility of the client. In case of comprehensive gap analyses, the GMP/GxP consultant performing the analysis may recommend clarification of interfaces or transitions between individual analyses.

    More than 20 years of experience in Gap analysis

    Our team of experts has successfully carried out many gap analyses in over the last 20 years and offers this consulting service for all GMP systems.

    If you are in the process of preparing for an internal, external, or upcoming regulatory inspection, we can support you with full commitment and professional expertise by our trained and experienced consultants.

    This is what a typical procedure looks like: The GMP consultant first checks the company-specific documentation and creates a gap analysis plan. Based on this gap analysis plan, the analysis on-site will be conducted.

    The results of documents and on-site checks are documented and the observations and identified deviations concerning GMP requirements are discussed. On the last day of the analysis period, the consultant supplements the deficiencies listed in the final report with proposals for appropriate corrective actions and with addressed associated regulations.

    The standard time frame for this service is as follows:

    • 1 consultant day for preparation
    • 2-5 days on-site analysis (depending on the system) 
    • 2 additional consultant days for reporting the results

    Thanks to our extensive team of consultants, we are usually able to carry out the requested Gap analysis in a timely manner.

  • Supplier Qualification

    The good manufacturing practice environment requires qualification of suppliers to ensure drug quality and safety

    The EU GMP Guidelines as well as ICH Q10 and the national AMWHV (German Ordinance for the Manufacture of Medicinal Products and Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients, Arzneimittel- und Wirkstoffherstellungsverordnung) specify requirements for assuring quality of the product between the customer and contractor or supplier.

    This applies to:

    • Suppliers of goods: Manufacturers and intermediaries of starting materials, active ingredients and excipients; contract manufacturers of intermediate and finished products, packaging materials, plants, systems, spare parts, computer systems etc.
    • Suppliers of services: With regard to calibration, maintenance, repair, pest control, storage, logistics, transport, distribution, development, manufacturing, testing, release, archiving, cleaning, clothing, consulting, third-party audits, etc.

    The most important goal: Securing supply chains

    The aim of supplier qualification is, on the one hand, to safeguard supply chains throughout the product lifecycle and, on the other hand, to ensure robust internal processes in compliance with the relevant regulatory requirements.

    Supplier qualifications are risk-based, with the scope and depth of the assessment depending on the process-specific risk level.

    As part of risk management and on the basis of regulatory requirementsaudits must be carried out by adequately trained personnel from the manufacturer or by third parties on site at the supplier's premises or by means of questionnaire audits, depending on the criticality of the goods/services.

    Furthermore, already qualified suppliers must be regularly re-evaluated or requalified.

    Assured supply chains, robust processes

    Assured supply chain with qualified suppliers and robust processes is ultimately the basis for reducing complaints and ensuring medicinal product safety.

    Thus, all supplier qualification actions contribute to the overall goals of medicinal product safety, efficiency and compliance.

    Do you need support or advice on supplier qualification? Contact us and tell us about your requirements. Together we find the best possible solution.
