History of GAMP

GAMP was started in 1991 by a group of pharmaceutical experts in the UK who wanted to meet the changing FDA expectations for GMP compliance of manufacturing and related systems. Today, it's grown into a global organization.


GAMP 5 Rationale

Since the release of GAMP 4 in 2001 the regulatory bodies had made significant updates in their thinking and approach to regulatory compliance. With these changes, GAMP 5 was necessary.



GAMP 4 has been used for computerized system validation for the last seven years. GAMP 5 is designed to be compatible with IEEE standards, ISO 9000 and 12207, IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), and other international standards.


Why GAMP 5

GAMP 5 provides "pragmatic guidance, approaches, and tools for the practitioner," guiding companies to help determine the best approach for validating GxP computerized systems.
