Training Program A: Two-Part GMP Training 

Part One: 21 CFR 111 cGMP Training
The FDA expects all companies that manufacture, package, or hold dietary supplement products to include the relative resources and ingredients. Excipient manufacturers are also required to follow 21 CFR 111, the dietary supplement cGMPs. As a part of maintaining compliance to 21 CFR 111, dietary supplement personnel must have GMP training on a regular basis. This course provides a basic understanding of cGMPs and the responsibilities expected for various individuals and groups within the company.

Participants will learn how to apply cGMP principles to specific situations. This course is interactive, with hands-on exercises including case studies from recent warning letters. Bring your questions and prepare to interact with the instructor and your peers in the industry.

During This Course You Will:

  • Interpret each subpart, providing an understanding of how to apply the principles to an employee or company’s specific situation.
  • Simulate a real scene to analyze the company’s compliance in high-risk fields.
  • Review some of the recent FDA warning letters submitted to dietary supplement companies.
  • Discuss the challenges of quality control and cGMP implementation with other attendees.
  • Introduce comprehensive GMP to new and existing employees, including QA/QC, manufacturing/production department, R&D, etc.

Who Should Attend?
Management, manufacturing, quality control/assurance; laboratory operations, auditing; suppliers and distributors, engineering security, regulatory affairs.

  • June 27th – 28th (2 day)
  • 8:30 – 17:00
  • RMB 4,500 per person

Register via the SCC website or, complete and submit the registration form here.

As a part of maintaining compliance to 21 CFR 111, dietary supplement personnel must have GMP training on a regular basis. A certificate of attendance will be provided upon completion of the course.

Part Two: Vendor Qualification & Audit Training 

Unless you intend to test every shipment of every component for every specification, you must qualify your vendors. The FDA does not provide much guidance on how to qualify vendors. This class is designed for people who want to improve quality in their facility and who already have a basic understanding of the dietary supplement GMPs.

Benefits of Taking This Course:

  • Find out how to effectively manage your suppliers and what the FDA is focusing on.
  • Discuss your specific questions.
  • Network with other professionals in the industry.
  • Learn best practices from the instructor and other participants.
