We enable organizations to build in a step by step manner an exhaustive GBP Manual for the same.

Good Behavioural Practices- GBP Audit
It is well established in our experience of consulting with Pharma organizations that cGMP cannot be implemented without first establishing GBP. Establishing GBP requires extensive cultural transformations. Where exactly in cultural and behavioural dimensions an organization stands will determine whether cGMP will be successfully implemented.
GBP Audit is a proprietary tool designed by UTSAV to enable Pharma organizations understand their readiness and maturity in implementing cGMP on enduring basis.
It’s objective is to scientifically and methodically assess variety of cultural and behavioural dimensions at all levels of management that enable and disable implementation of cGMP on lasting basis and not merely to clear statutory/ regulatory audits.
GBP-Audit report is exhaustive document that lists variety of behavioural/ cultural issues in order of criticality and importance (Critical, Major, Minor etc). Once this audit report is available, one can go about resolving the identified issues in a scientific manner.
GBP Audit also rates the organization through its GBP Score Card in terms of its maturity in GBP implementation.
Methodology and Dimensions:
1. Management appreciates the value and critical importance of human element (behaviour and culture) in implementing cGMP and is serious about tackling behavioural issues.
1. We will do our primary interviewing with target group (about 10% of the entire population), selected at random as well as design, from all the levels to understand the basics of work culture and variety of important behavioural issues in the organization;
2. For instance following dimensions may be examined in minute details:
a. Vision, values and mission of the top management as practiced and as professed;
b. Current skill base of the employees in relation to the various roles and role requirements;
HRD subsystems available today to build its competency base for the present, immediate future and long term goals;
d. Learning culture and systems including knowledge management.
e. Performance management system;
f. Work Culture of the organization including ownership and responsibility;
g. Work Climate and employee motivation levels;
