Reflecting current regulatory expectations and best practices, Good Practice Guides (GPGs) help to narrow interpretation of regulatory standards for improved compliance and quality, efficiency, and cost reductions. They typically focus on the “how”.
ISPE has produced the industry’s first Guidance Document to establish a baseline for the design of Quality Laboratory Facilities. The ISPE Good Practice Guide: Quality Laboratory Facilities is a comprehensive guide to defining design guidelines for Quality Laboratories supporting GxP-regulated facilities producing pharmaceutical products for human and animal applications.

ICH Q10 outlines three objectives: achieve product realization, establish and maintain a state of control, and facilitate continual improvement. Embracing these objectives can be best achieved using the dual enablers, Knowledge Management (KM) and Quality Risk Management (QRM).
The ISPE Good Practice Guide: Membrane-Based Water for Injection Systems provides expert guidance on the design, operation, maintenance, and quality aspects of membrane-based WFI systems, including generation, storage, and distribution. This Guide reflects an industry wide collaborative effort by a diverse range of industry experts that include equipment providers, engineering firms, consultants, and pharmaceutical manufacturers. The information presented in this guide is the combination of proven technological solutions, microbial control methods, process analytical technology, and operations and maintenance practices.
For the purposes of this Guide, operations are defined as the transformative process within a series of activities, along a value chain extending from supplier to customer. Operations Management designs, operates, and improves supply chain systems for getting work done. The ISPE Good Practice Guide: Operations Management aims to provide the pharmaceutical industry with a knowledge base to promote the use of best practices and operational excellence within pharmaceutical operations management.
The ISPE Good Practice Guide: Ozone Sanitization of Pharmaceutical Water Systems provides important insight into the design and use of pharmaceutical ozone sanitization systems, and is the first industry Guidance Document to take a holistic view of these issues.
The ISPE Good Practice Guide: Packaging, Labeling, and Warehousing Facilities is the industry's only guidance relating to the design, construction and commissioning and qualification of packaging, labeling and warehousing (PACLAW) facilities.
The ISPE Good Practice Guide: Project Management for the Pharmaceutical Industry provides good practice approaches which promote the successful integration of GxP with relevant project management activities to ensure that compliance risk is managed effectively and proactively.
The shift in process validation from a one-time event to the product lifecycle approach expected by most global markets has led to significant changes in validation practices. The science and risk-based approach combines product development knowledge with a structured process performance and product quality monitoring system to provide for validation throughout the product lifecycle.
This Guide reviews the unit operations typically employed in continuous manufacturing and aims to establish a set of minimum equipment requirements for each system to function as part of an integrated process train. While most of the units are well-understood and used in batch manufacturing, the Guide considers the changes in physical and automation requirements that will allow each unit to work in concert as part of a successful continuous manufacturing platform. Operations unique to CM, loss-in-weight feeding and continuous blending, are discussed, including how these systems affect upstream and downstream operations.
