Training courses and manual for training

WP10: Training courses and manual for training

On the basis of agreed documents: “Overall Guidance on organization of PPA system” and technical annexes, this WP will organise training courses and prepare “Manual for training CA inspectors that assess and authorize preparation processes of tissue, cell, and blood products”, to disseminate the approach throughout Member States. Possible overlapping with existing general inspection documents such as the EC Operational Manual for Inspections of TE and the recently issued deliverable by VISTART JA will be taken into account and clarified. In any case GAPP manual and
subsequent training will only focus on assessment and authorization of PPA processes.
Training course will be open to all Member States countries, as well as to Serbia and Moldova
