• Good manufacturing practice is that aspect of quality assurance that has to do with consistent manufacture of the medicine consistently to meet the intended need of quality, safety and efficacy. This is very important because pharmaceuticals, unlike other commodities one can only build quality into but not inspect quality into the product. It can also cause much harm if improperly manufactured. Slight changes in formulation or processes can mean so much. Moreover you cannot ascertain all that can go wrong because you can only test the product against set standards only. There is therfore need to put procedures in place for their quality, safety and efficacy.
