Regulatory compliance is increasingly visible in healthcare compliance, clinical research compliance, and quality and regulatory industries, including pharmaceutical, life sciences, food, and medical device industries.


Early clinical trials are conducted to establish the initial safety of a drug.  The studies are generally in a small number of healthy subjects and use lower or ranging doses of the drug product.  Therefore, only small amounts of investigational material are required. In-order to not undertake substantial costs and to reduce regulatory burden during these early stages, the FDA has established guidelines to allow early-stage investigational products to be manufactured under “phase 1 GMPs,” allowing flexibility in some of the rigorous, expensive, and time-consuming requirements.  As clinical development progresses, evolving into “phase 2 GMPs” and into commercialization with a methodical and comprehensive planned approach can save substantial time and expense.

This master program will include a detailed review of the current regulations as must be followed for commercialization as well as guidance documents with the flexibility in the interpretation of the regulations for earlier stages of manufacturing in compliance with GMPs to support early clinical trials.

Regulatory strategies, logistical considerations, and GMP-staging plans, options and alternatives, including raw material selection and receipt, vendor selection and management, stability programs, packaging and labelling, SOPs, documentation requirements, and validation will be discussed and explored through interpretations and case study examples.


Employ strategies within your company to save time and money in advancing clinical development.

This master program will provide the information and tools that you need to understand different baseline GMP requirements for each stage of development; beginning with needs for IND submission and phase 1 studies, progressing to phase 2, phase 3, NDA/BLA submission, and commercialization.

Options to explore and considerations for each will be discussed so that you have tools to develop and implement strategies for your organization using a phase-specific staging program of GMP requirements.
