Good manufacturing practices (GMP) are the processes required in order to conform to the guidelines recommended by agencies who control the authorization and licensing of the manufacture and sale of food, drug products, and active pharmaceutical products.
These guidelines provide minimum requirements that a pharmaceutical or a food and beverage product manufacturer must meet to assure that the products are of high quality and do not pose any risk to the consumer or public. For manufacturers of prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, stringent track and trace requirements call for innovative packaging, coding, marking and handling technologies – including printing of bar codes, lot numbers, batch codes, item numbers, and time and date stamps.
Pharmaceutical products must provide various pieces of information and must be traced back to the manufacturer. In addition to the requirement of traceability, due to the high incidence of counterfeiting and product diversion there is a movement towards products having the relevant technologies on-pack for consumers to authenticate the product.
