This is why major manufacturing companies pay keen attention to these practices to protect the consumers from receiving harmful or defective products – bad or failed practices could be lethal when it comes to pharmaceuticals.
Warehouse storage and distribution is a major area of concern when it comes to GMPs. Since most pharmaceuticals and industrial chemicals are shipped all over the world in bulk, most of them spend significant time in storage and in transit.
If the temperatures and humidity of the storage warehouse are not kept in check, they could tamper with the chemical balance of the stored goods. The chemical changes are often difficult to spot and could create a danger, especially with the goods meant for human consumption.
Therefore, before a warehouse is deemed safe enough to store temperature and humidity sensitive products, it needs to undergo ‘mapping’ of its humidity and temperature profiles. This guide aims to show how you can keep your warehouse GMP compliant when it comes to temperature monitoring:
