For more information on the PIC/S

The main objectives of the Pharmaceutical Inspection Co-operation Scheme (PIC/S) are to be an internationally recognised actor in the development of recommendations for good manufacturing and distribution practices for medicinal products (but also for pharmaceutical raw materials), to be a training place for inspectors, to bring inspection systems to a high level of quality management and to be a place for exchanges between inspectors but also between industry and inspectors on technical subjects. The PIC/S comprises 54 inspection authorities from 50 different countries. Anses-ANMV has been a member of PIC/S since its origin in 1995.

  • international harmonisation of GMPs;
  • training of Inspectors; 
  • the creation of an international network of inspectors; 
  • exchange of GMP information and experience; 
  • the establishment of quality management systems for inspections.
