What are Current Good Manufacturing Practices

cGMP or Current Good Manufacturing Practice refers to a set of regulations put forth by the government to ensure that business, manufacturers, and packagers of products guarantee that their products are effective, safe, and pure. Initially, cGMP was put forth by the FDA for pharmaceutical products, medical devices, blood, and certain foods, but cGMP has expanded to include facilities, buildings, production, equipment, process controls laboratory controls, packaging and labeling, and returned or salvaged drug products.

At a high level, the goal if cGMP is to increase product quality by developing systems that proactively guarantee proper product design and control of manufacturing processes and facilities.


With cGMP, you are following regulatory guidelines to ensure that your products are safe, pure, and of the best quality.


cGMP is an expensive proposition. It needs you to invest in additional testing and state-of-the-art technologies.

Why is cGMP Compliance Important?

You are ensuring that:

Buildings and facilities are in good condition

Equipment is properly maintained and calibrated

Processes and procedures are reproducible and reliable

Employees are fully trained and qualified

Products are safe and of high quality

How to Remain cGMP Compliant?

To meet cGMP compliance and regulatory requirements, do ensure that:

All data is complete with necessary controls

Assign ownership to specific individuals

Authorize only selected individuals to make changes to records

Regular review of records for compliance, accuracy, and completeness

Ensure that data is secure throughout its history

Final Thoughts

The main purpose of cGMP is to ensure that manufacturers, business organizations, and packagers of pharmaceutical products, medical devices, and certain foods must proactively guarantee that their products are effective, safe, and pure.

By being cGMP compliant, you have facilities that are in good condition. Equipment that is carefully maintained and calibrated. Fully trained and qualified staff, procedures and protocols that are reproducible and reliable, and products that are of high-quality, safe, and efficacious.
