Good Documentation Practices (GDocP) is the systematic procedure of preparation, reviewing, approving, issuing, recording, storing, and archiving documents. Documentation is essential for good science. This is especially true in medical technology, where worldwide medical device regulations impose a special recordkeeping burden. The practice of good documentation is mandatory for the medical device industry. In this industry, documentation serves both the scientific and compliance needs, and GDocP is the set of activities that enable you to record your data and hand-written entries in a legible, traceable and reproducible manner.



The course provides participants with an overview of the main types of documentation found within the medical device industry. The participants will learn the good practices of how the documentation can be designed, produced, and controlled as part of a compliant Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) system.
