Certification of Good Manufacturing Practices - Understand its importance and how to obtain it

The Certification of Good Manufacturing Practices can be a great differential in your company. It is related to the Quality System implemented in your company and offers several benefits in several areas.

Get to know a little more about this process, when it's mandatory, what the advantages of applying it and how Stone Okamont can help you!

 

What is and what is the role of Good Manufacturing Practices Certification (CBPF)?

CBPF is the certification granted to a company that has implemented a Quality System that has been audited and approved, in the standards and legislation applicable to its segment by an OCP - (Primary Certifying Agency) or Competent Government Agency (ANVISA / MAPA).

We can use as an example the Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency (ANVISA). The auditors of ANVISA go to the company to inspect the Quality System and know if it corresponds to the applicable standards and if it is functional.

Once this audit is carried out - and with satisfactory results - the company receives the Certification of Good Manufacturing Practices.

It exists to prove the quality of what is accomplished in the company.

 

And what is Quality System?

The Quality System is a set of manuals, procedures and records that establish parameters that must be followed by the company to ensure that all processes follow the quality prerogatives required by the Ministry of Health or any other agency that the company is subject to.

The Quality System establishes standards that optimize the operation of the company, bringing benefits.

All creation of this documentation is established according to the operation of the company and with the regulations of the related regulatory bodies.

From this, manuals, standard operating procedures, internal standards, tokens, forms, among several other documents are created. This information, when ready, should guide both the company and its employees.

 

When can the Quality System and Good Practices be applied?

The Quality System can be applied in any company, regardless of its size, number of employees, performance or service provided. This system, as the name itself says, creates a control, which allows to minimize errors, disorganization, losses, rework, loss of time and capital, among others.

The Certification of Good Manufacturing Practices is an evaluation of the Quality System by the certifying agency. It can be applied to any company that has a consolidated Quality System.

In some cases, the Certification of Good Manufacturing Practices is mandatory.

In the Product Regulation processes, items that need to be registered by the Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency (ANVISA) belong to the Risk Classification III and IV. To enter a Registration Process companies are required to have the Certification of Good Manufacturing Practices.

This is because Risk Classes III and IV generally encompass drugs and correlates, requiring more complex and judicious processes, requiring more detailed procedures.

 

What are the benefits?

Among the many benefits, one of the first to appear when adopting a Quality System is the financial return. The investment made returns in a short time, besides bringing other advantages such as competitiveness, profitability, production, avoiding unnecessary expenses, better organization, greater consumer / public reliability.

How does Stone Okamont assist in the process of obtaining the Certification of Good Manufacturing Practices?

In order to obtain the Certification of Good Manufacturing Practices, a petition is filed with ANVISA (or other related certifying body). The auditors of the organ go to the company and there they make judicious evaluations in the Quality System implanted. If the result is satisfactory and the rules required by the standards are in compliance, then the company receives the certification.
