JIMGA establishes good practice working groups


The Japan Industrial and Medical Gases Association (JIMGA) has founded two working groups to address best practice requirements.

The association recently established two collectives to enable the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare to meet requirements of the international Pharmaceutical Inspection Convention and Co-operation Scheme (PIC/S).

JIMGA created the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Working Committee for Enhanced Investigation. In addition, the overseeing body also established a specific working group to analyse the efficacy and role of the Convention itself. This group, dubbed, Working Group 5 – Medical Gas Production, is headed by JIMGA.
