- Internal Audit Program SOP
This Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) describes the program necessary to assure compliance with all relevant GMP and Regulatory Requirement. Therefore this SOP defines the procedure and responsibility for the Internal Audit (Self-inspection) planning, implementation and follow-up to assure Site’s compliance with regulatory, cGMP and Site quality procedures.
The scope of the Internal Audit Program encompasses all current Good Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) and Good Distribution Practices (GDP) topics including Information Systems and/or Computerized Systems and related Quality Management System Controls (e.g. compliance with SOPs, the applicable QA system used, change control, etc.). The Internal Audit program also takes into account the need to review any recurrent quality/quality system issues identified through non-conformance reporting.
