• Are you involved with any authorisation step in a pharmaceutical process?
  • Do you need to be aware of the responsibilities of Authorised Persons?

If you answered “yes” to either question, this course can help you understand and execute your GMP / Quality responsibilities so that you and your organisation are compliant with the PIC/S Guide to GMP requirements.



As regulators increase their attention on release for supply processes and personnel, SeerPharma is supporting industry with this dedicated Release for Supply training course. You will learn the duties and responsibilities of Authorised Persons within the context of the Australian regulatory framework and improve your understanding of critical areas including:

  • An overview of the regulatory requirements
  • Batch Review / Device History Record Review and decision-making on disposition
  • GMP and Quality Agreements and the role of auditing and monitoring
  • Risk-based approach: Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs) & Critical Process Parameters (CPPs)
  • Case study: Using the traffic light system

This course has been updated to address the February 2019-published TGA Guidance on Release for  supply of medicines, consistent with PIC/S Guide to GMP (PE 009-13).


This course is suitable for any personnel with any level of responsibility for release for supply under the PIC/S Guide to GMP; including organisations regulated by the TGA (current requirement) or Medsafe (best practice). You may have the final signature or be responsible for authorising some steps in the manufacturing process. You might be involved in quality-related investigations, or need to better understand the obligations of the manufacturer or the sponsor. People from the following functional areas have benefited from this program:

  • Quality Assurance
  • Quality Control
  • Production
  • Third Party Logistics (3PL)
  • Suppliers of Clinical Material
