Change orders are another way to prepare for uncertainties in a guaranteed maximum price contract. These are reciprocal agreements to increase the price of the contract or extend the completion period due to unforeseen conditions, unfinished plans or change of ownership that have a significant impact on the scale of the project. The licensor shall define appropriate storage conditions, including temperature, light and humidity for finished products and bulk goods. The manufacturer of the market may be asked to transport the products to the client or to a designated third party. The nature of the waste (e.g. B solvents, toxic waste, etc.) and their specific disposal methods are also described in the GMP Technical Agreement, which the contractor is required to comply with. It is clear that there is a dispute as to what a change is that should lead to a price adjustment and that it is possible for the contractor to use the valuation of the changes to cover the costs it has incurred elsewhere. This can create tensions in a contractual form chosen to ensure security. In today`s competitive environment, pharmaceutical companies are increasingly outsourcing the production of APIs and formulations. In such cases of contract manufacturing, the EU Guidelines on Good Manufacturing Practice invite companies to sign a technical agreement setting out the roles and responsibilities of the parties concerned with regard to the manufacture and control of medicinal products. A GMP technical agreement ensures compliance with current best practices (cGMP). In almost all cases of subcontracting of GMP activities, there will also be a commercial agreement on outsourced activities, such as for example.
B a `production and supply agreement`. This trade agreement is usually developed by legal and business development officers and is not sufficiently detailed to comply with GMP principles. The GMP contract should set out the procedure by which the owner and/or contractors may request and approve such modification contracts. In the event of a dispute over price or labour, the treaty should include a dispute settlement clause to describe the management of disputes. Without the flexibility to integrate change commands into the GMP, a project could remain on hold. If the actual cost of the work is higher than the maximum guaranteed price, the contractor must bear the additional costs. If the costs are below the maximum guaranteed price, the contract should determine whether the savings are going to the client, the contractor or are shared. This can lead to a “pain/profit” or a target cost agreement in which the contractor is incentivized to make savings, but the customer is guaranteed a cost cap. Make sure that your technical agreement contains all the cGMP rules applicable to the manufacture of a particular product. – active and adjuvant-bound raw materials must be purchased in accordance with the `Guidelines to minimise the risk of transfer`. – The Contractor may not make any changes to the process, raw materials or wording without the prior written consent of the Contractor.- Contractors and regulatory authorities should be allowed to carry out audits and inspections of the relevant processes.
