Join us for the GMP Summit 2016 Conference!!!! The biggest conference gathering of the global pharma manufacturing industry, attracting attendees from around the globe.

The program agenda provides a unique forum for pharmaceutical executives from around the world to network and hear world-renowned experts discussing the latest insight into the international Intellectual Property, Business Development, Bioequivalence, Regulatory/ Legal Affairs, Research and Development and pharmacovigilance from pharma and biopharma field concerning the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector.

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards.

The genuine medications go through quality checks before they are sealed for retail use. However cases of fake medications being sold in the pharmacy are not unheard of. So the next time you have to buy you medicines from a new store make sure that you check that the product is genuine. Here is how you can do it.

Check the seal of the bottle or the box. The security seal should not be tampered with nor should it be damaged. Make sure that there are no cracks in the seal before you make any purchase. Do not buy if the bottle looks to be tampered.

Do not skip checking the product packaging. If you have purchased the same medicines earlier then look at the spelling, the font and the colour. Most often if it is a fake product then something would look amiss.

Visually look at the medicine which is a common attribute that can let you figure out if the medicine is a fake one. If there are small tablet pieces or excess of powder at the bottom of the container then this should raise an alert. There should be no cracks in the tablet and the medicine should feel right to touch. Also look for any discolouration, spots or swelling on the tablet.The tablet should neither be very hard nor very soft.

It is designed to minimize the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production that cannot be eliminated through testing the final product. GMP covers all aspects of production; from the starting materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff. Advanced studies are being made to improvise quality of products, reduce safety risk and cost, and enhance international credibility and public image and many more.
