What does emptying according to GMP mean?

“GMP-compliant” stands for “Good Manufacturing Practice” and refers to best manufacturing practices in the pharmaceutical and food industries. When something is emptied in a “GMP-compliant” manner, it means that the emptying process is carried out in accordance with the quality standards and guidelines specified in the GMP regulations.

In terms of emptying blister packs, this means that the process is designed to ensure that the integrity and quality of the products contained within is maintained. Here are some of the aspects that are considered in GMP-compliant emptying:

  • Hygiene and cleanliness: The discharge process takes place in a clean and hygienic environment to prevent contamination of the products.
  • Quality control: Products are carefully monitored and inspected to ensure that they meet quality standards and to ensure that no damaged or defective products are returned to the manufacturing process.
  • Traceability: an accurate record is kept of which products have been removed from blister packs to ensure traceability and documentation.
  • Product protection: During the discharge process, products are handled carefully to avoid damage or contamination.
  • Process validation: The emptying process is validated to ensure that it is reproducible and consistent.

GMP compliance is critical in the pharmaceutical and food industries to ensure that manufactured products are safe, effective and of high quality. GMP-compliant discharge is an important part of this quality management system and ensures that products are not damaged during the discharge process and meet the highest quality standards.
