Effective SOP Writing
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are the foundation of documentation in the pharmaceutical industry and connect the processes that are executed with the requirements outlined by health authority regulations. An effective SOP is an SOP that is fit for purpose, meaning that it is written and designed to help the target audience achieve the intended outcome. SOPs provide purpose and instruction for why and how processes are performed. Having well-written and easy to understand SOPs supports consistent, right-first-time process execution.
