Implementation Guide:
This guide features tips and instructions on implementation that are structured around each requirement of PCMAP. This easy reference guide is designed to simplify the assessment process through explaining each requirement and providing implementation guidance.

Think of this as a practice assessment. It’s a low risk review of your present status by a PCMAP qualified assessor. Use this as an opportunity to identify where gaps exist between program requirements and your operations.

PCMAP Assessment:
This is a comprehensive quality and safety assessment of your manufacturing operations. Ensure your operations are working within GMPs.

SAI Global Certified PCMAP Assessment:
Compliance with the PCMAP assessment requirements are certified by SAI Global, annual follow up assessments are scheduled, and a certificate is issued.

PCMAP Online Portal:  enables sharing of assessment reports with multiple customers, resulting in cost-savings due to reducing the need for multiple assessments at the plant level.
