Qualified Persons in the European Union

The Qualified Person, abbreviated as QP, is mandated by the EU GMP. The QP is responsible for ensuring that each individual batch has been manufactured and checked in compliance with laws in force in the Member State where certification takes place, in accordance with the requirements of the marketing authorisation (MA) and with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

The Qualified Person is contracted or employed by the manufacturer or importer of medicinal products. Although there is a financial relationship, the Qualified Person is independent. Decisions on batch release should not be corrupted by threaths of employment termination or other financial consequences/motives.
