Quality Assurance

You are here


The quality of pharmaceuticals has been a concern of the World Health Organization (WHO) since its inception. “Quality Assurance” is a wide-ranging concept covering all matters that individually or collectively influence the quality of a product. It is the totality of the arrangements made with the object of ensuring that pharmaceutical products are of the quality required for their intended use.

Quality assurance (QA) refers to planned and systematic production processes that provide confidence in a product's suitability for its desired purpose. It is a set of activities intended to ensure that products (goods and/or services) satisfy customer requirements in a systematic, reliable fashion. Two key principles characterise QA: "fit for purpose" (the product should be suitable for the intended purpose) and "right first time" (mistakes should be eliminated).

It is important to realize also that quality is determined by the intended users, clients or customers, not by society in general. Pharmacy industry is one of the industry which demands these principles in toto and keeping abreast of the advancements, ISF college of pharmacy has started this branch with latest equipment and also with latest tools to train students for the coming years.

Our aim is to train the pharmacy graduates in quality assurance to cater the ever-increasing need of pharmaceutical industry and academia both in public and private sector. Special emphasis is laid on the implementation of Good Manufacturing & Laboratory Practices (GMP & GLP) and documentation.
