Summary
Quality assurance of pharmaceutical products is a continuing concern of WHO. Despite efforts made around the world to ensure a supply of quality and effective medicines, substandard, spurious, falsified and counterfeit products still compromise health care delivery in many countries.

To respond to the global need for adequate quality assurance of pharmaceuticals, WHO's Expert Committee on Specifications for Pharmaceutical Preparations has over the years made numerous recommendations to establish standards and guidelines and to promote the effective functioning of national regulatory and control systems and the implementation of internationally agreed standards by trained personnel. More than 70 relevant documents endorsed by the Committee are reproduced in this CDROM, providing guidance covering all aspects of quality assurance including good manufacturing practices (GMP).

This CD-ROM replaces and updates the Compendium of Guidelines and Related Materials published in 2010 and also includes the WHO Training Modules on Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) study pack with a huge set of training materials reflecting the various GMP texts.
