It is the objective of Pharmaceutical Companies to save lives by providing safe products to consumers. However during the production period, errors may occur or wrong method was applied which may result to substandard or potentially dangerous products, and consequently product recalls is inevitable. For these reasons, Pharmaceutical Companies must have a thorough, safe and effective quality manufacturing system in place.
