The abstract concept of quality is something that have been spoken for marketing purposes a lot, which is why there are now international organizations as the Codex Committee on Residues of Veterinary Drugs (CCRVDF) by the Codex Alimentarius International, the Center of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the International Cooperation on the harmonization of Technical requeriments for the Registration of Veterinary Products (VICH) which seek to set standards in all countries to achieve and ensure quality.
In the process of manufacturing medicines, a full production inspection is essential to ensure the quality of products sold to consumers. The process cannot be left to chance when substances that are developed may be decisive to save, preserve or restore animal health. Also, in animals intended for human consumption, it must be ensured that the substance has disappeared from the tissue to avoid it entering the food chain, thus avoiding possible resistance when the substance should be administered in people to preserve human health.
Compliance with Good Manufacturing Practices involves norms and standards for personnel, in facilities, buildings, equipment and documentation. The most important aspect suggests that these standards require a documented system to ensure the steps taken to produce, control and distribute a product.
The main purpose of this set of norms is to ensure quality from the receipt of raw materials to the finished product distribution.
An organizational culture is what allows a full compliance as it ensures the appropriate relationship between the different areas of the company, with an integrated management system that unifies the aspects of quality of products offered with special attention to commercial and operational goals to achieve full customer satisfaction.
