GDP Certification

The wholesale distribution of medicinal products is an important activity in the integrated supply chain management. The quality and the integrity of medicinal products can be affected by a lack of adequate control. To this end, the Commission has published guidelines on Good Distribution Practice of medicinal products for human use. GDP is a quality warranty system, which includes requirements for purchase, receiving, storage and export of drugs intended for human consumption.

GDP regulates the division and movement of pharmaceutical products from the premises of the manufacturer of medicinal products, or another central point, to the end user thereof, or to an intermediate point by means of various transport methods, via various storage and/or health establishments.

Manufacturers of medicinal products have to make sure that the products will be distributed under controlled conditions. Therefore, wholesalers, transport companies, warehouses and other partners in the supply chain will have to be selected carefully. An ongoing supervision of these organisations is necessary. It is the aim of  CDG to provide a standardized scheme to audit GDP compliance at all levels of the supply chain.

It is the responsibility of the supplying wholesale distributor to protect medicinal products against breakage, adulteration and theft, and to ensure that temperature conditions are maintained within acceptable limits during transport. Wholesalers, transport companies, and warehouses may contact us for a GDP assessment(self assessment) audit. Depending on the size of the organization and their facility we decide audit man-day. CDG is the leading compliance audit company of India providing GDP Compliance assessment services.

CMMI Certification

Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a process level improvement training and appraisal program. Administered by the CMMI Institute, a subsidiary of ISACA, it was developed at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). CMMI can be used to guide process improvement across a project, division, or an entire organization. With five “Maturity Levels” or three “Capability Levels,” the CMMI defines the most important elements that are required to build great products, or deliver great services, and wraps them all up in a comprehensive model.

CMMI addresses following areas of interest:

  1. Product and service development — CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV),
  2. Service establishment, management, — CMMI for Services (CMMI-SVC), and
  3. Product and service acquisition — CMMI for Acquisition (CMMI-ACQ).

CMMI was originated in software engineering but it has been highly generalized over the years to embrace other areas of interest, such as the development of hardware products, the delivery of all kinds of services, and the acquisition of products and services

What is CMMI Level?

A maturity level is a well-defined evolutionary plateau toward achieving a mature software process. Each maturity level provides a layer in the foundation for continuous process improvement. In CMMI models with a staged representation, there are five maturity levels designated by the numbers 1 through 5. Initial.

What is CMMI Level 1 ?

At maturity level 1 (CMMI Level 1) processes are usually ad hoc and chaotic. The organization usually does not provide a stable environment. Success in these organizations depends on the competence and heroics of the people in the organization and not on the use of proven processes.

What is CMMI Level 2 ?
At maturity level 2, an organization has achieved all the specific and generic goals of the maturity level 2 process areas. In other words, the projects of the organization have ensured that requirements are managed and that processes are planned, performed, measured, and controlled. At maturity level 2, requirements, processes, work products, and services are managed. Commitments are established among relevant stakeholders and are revised as needed. The process discipline reflected by maturity level 2 helps to ensure that existing practices are retained during times of stress.

What is CMMI Level 3 ?

CMMI Level 3 is one of five “Maturity Levels” in the CMMI. Known as the “Defined” level, CMMI Level 3 is achieved when an organization successfully completes a SCAMPI A appraisal, which verifies that the organization is operating at Level 3. At maturity level 3, processes are well characterized and understood, and are described in standards, procedures, tools, and methods.

What is CMMI Level 4 ?

At maturity level 4 Sub-processes are selected that significantly contribute to overall process performance. These selected sub-processes are controlled using statistical and other quantitative techniques. Quantitative objectives for quality and process performance are established and used as criteria in managing processes. Quality and process performance measures are incorporated into the organization’s measurement repository to support fact-based decision making in the future.

What is CMMI Level 5 ?

At maturity level 5, an organization has achieved all the specific goals of the process areas assigned to maturity levels 2, 3, 4, and 5. Maturity level 5 focuses on continually improving process performance through both incremental and innovative technological improvements. A critical distinction between maturity level 4 and maturity level 5 is the type of process variation addressed. The effects of deployed process improvements are measured and evaluated against the quantitative process-improvement objectives.

What is SCAMPI ?

The Standard CMMI Appraisal Method for Process Improvement (SCAMPI) is the appraisal method that is employed by a Certified SCAMPI Lead Appraiser to help your team “achieve a level.” There are three different types of appraisals, called “Classes” and they are SCAMPI A, SCAMPI B, or SCAMPI C. The SCAMPI A is the only appraisal method that results in a Maturity or Capability Level Rating.
