Drug Manufacturing Process

Pharmaceutical quality starts with the drug manufacturing process. Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMPs) regulations are enforced by the FDA. This regulation ensures that drug manufacturers use the proper design, monitoring, and control systems for medication production. These processes assure that strength, quality, purity, and identity are maintained across the market. CGMP also makes sure that the raw materials, quality assurance testing, and facility management are above minimum standards. Regardless of the drug being manufactured these main steps are followed: Design Conception, Manufacture, Extraction, Supply, Alteration, Packaging, and then Release.
