FDA cGMP for Medical Gases


New draft FDA guidance of interest "Current Good Manufacturing Practice for Medical Gases Guidance for Industry."

The introduction to the document reads: "This guidance is intended to assist manufacturers of medical gases in complying with applicable current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) regulations (21 CFR parts 210 and 211).  Medical gases are generally regulated as finished pharmaceuticals and are subject to CGMP requirements regardless of the processing stage. Compliance with applicable CGMP requirements helps to ensure the safety, identity, strength, quality, and purity of medical gases. Medical gases that are not manufactured, processed, packed, or held according to applicable CGMP requirements can cause serious injury or death."
