Audit success

The course is designed both for people with internal auditing responsibilities within a company and for those who want to understand how the regulatory audit process works and how to be prepared for an external audit.

As the PIC/s guide to good manufacturing practice for medicinal products states:

“‘Self inspections should be conducted in order to monitor the implementation and compliance…'”

Course Duration & Location

3-5 days, on your site or at one of our training centers.

CiPharma’s training courses can be delivered anywhere in the world. If your site is not in a city we have an office in then we ask you to cover the travel costs from our nearest office.
