Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies

(ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO

technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been

established has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and

non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

The main task of technical committees is to prepare International Standards. Draft International Standards

adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an

International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

ISO 15378 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 76, Transfusion, infusion and injection, and blood

processing equipment for medical and pharmaceutical use.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 15378:2006), which has undergone a minor

revision to adapt this International Standard to ISO 9001:2008 and update references.

Introduction
0.1 General

This International Standard identifies Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) principles and specifies

requirements for a quality management system applicable to primary packaging materials for medicinal

products. The realization of GMP principles in production and control of primary packaging materials within

organizations is of great importance for the safety of a patient using the medicinal product, because of their

direct product contact. The application of GMP for pharmaceutical packaging materials helps ensure that

these materials meet the needs and requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.

This International Standard is an application standard for primary packaging materials, which contains the

normative text of ISO 9001:2008.
The conventions for the layout of this International Standard are the following.

 Those clauses or subclauses that are quoted directly and unchanged from ISO 9001:2008 are in boxed

text.

 Texts in italics contain additional relevant GMP information regarding primary packaging materials.

GMP terms and definitions are included in Clause 3. If listed, the source is referred to in brackets.

ISO 15378:2011(E)
ISO 9001:2008, Quality management systems — Requirements
0.1 General

The adoption of a quality management system should be a strategic decision of an organization. The

design and implementation of an organization's quality management system is influenced by

a) its organizational environment, changes in that environment, and the risks associated with that

environment,
b) its varying needs,
c) its particular objectives,
d) the products it provides,
e) the processes it employs,
f) its size and organizational structure.

It is not the intent of this International Standard to imply uniformity in the structure of quality management

systems or uniformity of documentation.

The quality management system requirements specified in this International Standard are

complementary to requirements for products. Information marked “NOTE” is for guidance in

understanding or clarifying the associated requirement.

This International Standard can be used by internal and external parties, including certification bodies, to

assess the organization's ability to meet customer, statutory and regulatory requirements applicable to

the product, and the organization's own requirements.

The quality management principles stated in ISO 9000 and ISO 9004 have been taken into consideration

during the development of this International Standard.

A key objective of this International Standard is to define harmonized primary packaging material

requirements. It includes some particular requirements for primary packaging materials, which are derived

from Good Manufacturing Practices for the production, control, etc. of medicinal products.

0.2 Process approach
ISO 9001:2008, Quality management systems — Requirements
0.2 Process approach

This International Standard promotes the adoption of a process approach when developing,

implementing and improving the effectiveness of a quality management system, to enhance customer

satisfaction by meeting customer requirements.

For an organization to function effectively, it has to determine and manage numerous linked activities. An

activity or set of activities using resources, and managed in order to enable the transformation of inputs

into outputs, can be considered a process. Often the output from one process directly forms the input to

the next.

The application of a system of processes within an organization, together with the identification and

interactions of these processes, and their management to produce the desired outcome, can be referred

to as the “process approach”.

An advantage of the process approach is the ongoing control that it provides over the linkage between

the individual processes within the system of processes, as well as over their combination and

interaction.

When used within a quality management system, such an approach emphasizes the importance of

a) understanding and meeting requirements,
b) the need to consider processes in terms of added value,
c) obtaining results of process performance and effectiveness, and
d) continual improvement of processes based on objective measurement.

The model of a process-based quality management system shown in Figure 1 illustrates the process

linkages presented in Clauses 4 to 8. This illustration shows that customers play a significant role in

defining requirements as inputs. Monitoring of customer satisfaction requires the evaluation of

information relating to customer perception as to whether the organization has met the customer

requirements. The model shown in Figure 1 covers all the requirements of this International Standard,

but does not show processes at a detailed level.

NOTE In addition, the methodology known as “Plan-Do-Check-Act” (PDCA) can be applied to all processes.

PDCA can be briefly described as follows.

Plan: establish the objectives and processes necessary to deliver results in accordance with customer

requirements and the organization's policies.
Do: implement the processes.

Check: monitor and measure processes and product against policies, objectives and requirements for the product

and report the results.
Act: take actions to continually improve process performance.

0.3 Relationship with ISO 9004
ISO 9001:2008, Quality management systems — Requirements
0.3 Relationship with ISO 9004

ISO 9001 and ISO 9004 are quality management system standards which have been designed to

complement each other, but can also be used independently.

ISO 9001 specifies requirements for a quality management system that can be used for internal

application by organizations, or for certification, or for contractual purposes. It focuses on the

effectiveness of the quality management system in meeting customer requirements.

At the time of publication of this International Standard, ISO 9004 is under revision. The revised edition of

ISO 9004 will provide guidance to management for achieving sustained success for any organization in a

complex, demanding, and ever changing, environment. ISO 9004 provides a wider focus on quality

management than ISO 9001; it addresses the needs and expectations of all interested parties and their

satisfaction, by the systematic and continual improvement of the organization's performance. However, it

is not intended for certification, regulatory or contractual use.
0.4 Compatibility with other management systems

This International Standard incorporates the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 and, additionally, particular

requirements for primary packaging materials, which are derived and adapted, as appropriate, from Good

Manufacturing Practices for the production and control of medicinal products.
ISO 9001:2008, Quality management systems — Requirements
0.4 Compatibility with other management systems

During the development of this International Standard, due consideration was given to the provisions of

ISO 14001:2004 to enhance the compatibility of the two standards for the benefit of the user community.

Annex A shows the correspondence between ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004.

This International Standard does not include requirements specific to other management systems, such

as those particular to environmental management, occupational health and safety management, financial

management or risk management. However, this International Standard enables an organization to align

or integrate its own quality management system with related management system requirements. It is

possible for an organization to adapt its existing management system(s) in order to establish a quality

management system that complies with the requirements of this International Standard.
