Programme Overview

DCEP webinarIn 2013, the EDQM carried out 34 on-site inspections, mainly in Asia, with the participation of GMP inspectors from different European Economic Area (EEA) countries or countries with which the EEA has a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) in the field. The EDQM inspection programme is an integral part of the Certification procedure and is aimed to verify compliance with both Good Manufacturing Practices (EU GMP Part II and relevant Annexes) and the Certificate of Suitability (CEP) application at the sites covered by CEPs.


The aim of this webinar is to provide manufacturers with a greater understanding of the EDQM inspection programme, how it works and what to expect. It will cover topics such as understanding GMP requirements and gathering evidence of compliance, preparing your site, managing the inspection on the day, what the inspectors are looking for or interacting with the inspectors. Furthermore, it provides information on the follow-up of inspections, possible outcomes and their consequences.


The webinar will be provided by, Dr Thomas Hecker, Inspector, EDQM’s Certification Division. Dr Hecker is in charge of organising and conducting EDQM inspections of manufacturers of active pharmaceutical ingredients. Furthermore, he represents the EDQM in the meetings of the EMA’s GMDP Inspectors’ Working Group and the ICH Q7 Implementation Working Group.
