Annual Product Quality Review (APQR) Software

Product Quality Review (PQR)is conducted for each commercial product manufactured in the Pharmaceutical, Biotech and Bio-similar Industries. This requirement was published as final current good manufacturing practices (CGMP) regulations for drug products (21 CFR 211.180(e)), 21 CFR 211.180(e). It has been commonly referred to—by FDA and the pharmaceutical industry—as the “Product Annual Review” (PAR) or the “Annual Product Review” (APQR). The products are delivered to markets within the United States and they are in compliance with the guidelines laid down by the US FDA in accordance with GMP standards

The aim of this annual product quality review within the pharmaceutical companies is to verify the consistency of  the manufacturing procedures, to examine trends, and to identify changes required in the specifications, or in the methods or technique for production. It also evaluates the Standard Operating Procedures and assesses the need for re-validation.

As per the guideline defined in ICH Q7 2.5 Product Quality Review 2.50, Regular quality reviews of APIs should be conducted with the objective of verifying the consistency of the process. 

Annual Product Quality Review (APQR), It was introduced as part of the GMP practices to provide manufacturers of pharmaceutical products with a set of reliable procedures that must be followed for reviewing the quality standards of every drug product. The content and management of Quality Product Reviews should be established according to the regulatory requirements.

EU Guidelines for Good Manufacturing Practice will refer to this as PQR (Product Quality Review), the procedure followed in Product Quality Review (PQR) is based on EU GMP guidelines

AmpleLogic APQR Software is developed on LOW CODE PLATFORM, Captures the information manually and extracts data from other sources by integrating with software systems which may be used by the company. These software systems include LMS, QMS, BMS and MES/eBMR. The software is also capable of capturing data from a variety of other software systems and legacy products which are a part of your organization’s IT environment.
