6.4 WHO basic training modules on GMP

WHO has developed GMP training modules to promote GMP implementation in response to difficulties in achieving GMP compliance in developing countries. The modules are available on CD-ROM and via the WHO web site. The CD-ROMs have been distributed free of charge to all Member States and other relevant organizations. The Committee had the opportunity to view the contents of the training modules.

Pilot workshops for GMP inspectors and representatives of industry have been held in all WHO regions, and feedback from participants has so far been very positive.

The Committee commended WHO for taking this initiative and urged that the project on the strengthening of pharmaceutical manufacturing inspection should be continued and expanded.
