Qualified Person

An important integral function


The concept of the qualified person according to EU regulations is different from regulatory aspects in the US or in any other state outside of the European Union. The personal responsibility and liability of the QP is a very specific requirement. Each Qualified Person needs to be registered with, appointed or approved by the competent authority of the EU member state in which he or she is operating. Therefore not only the pharmaceutical company for which he or she is acting, but also the registered qualified person is personally responsible for his or her duties.

„For Rottendorf Pharma GmbH the QP function is an integral function within the Quality systems. This means the QP is an integral part of the manufacturing license, the person is personally approved by the District Government Muenster and is focussing on quality evaluation and release function."

„The QP at Rottendorf Pharma GmbH as a multinationally operating CDMO also has to make sure that all customers related quality aspects are respected as defined in the approved Quality Agreements and internal Quality procedures – especially against the background of the different country requirements."

To enable the QP taking over these responsibilities he or she is directly involved in all quality-related decisions for products and batches including upcoming changes. In depth knowledge of products, processes, systems and procedures and experience are keys to adequate and effective decisions with regard to products, customer and patients. Personal qualification with regard to the legal requirements is one thing to start from but needs to be continuously expanded with day to day operational experience, process understanding and regulatory knowledge.

  • Ensuring that enough samples are stored from all testing materials and their labels and printed packaging materials in accordance with the provisions of § 18, subsection 3 of the AMWHV.

  • Ensuring that contracts have been concluded with contract manufacturers and contract laboratories
  • Ensuring that a QM system has been established and is being implemented at Rottendorf Pharma GmbH

The QP at Rottendorf Pharma GmbH as a multinationally operating CDMO also has to make sure that all customers related quality aspects are respected as defined in the approved Quality Agreements and internal Quality procedures – especially against the background of the different country requirements. Therefore he or she is also directly involved in establishing Quality Agreements and maintaining the agreed status. 

Total Process Ownership (TPO) as our company philosophy is also applied for the services provided by the QP at Rottendorf Pharma. The QP contributes in providing optimal service for our customer by bringing in his or her competence, expertise and experience.
