Manufacturers of medicinal products including radiopharmaceuticals have to follow regulations from their governmental organizations as well as professional societies to ensure built-in quality combined with patient safety issues. This chapter is a concise review of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) with a special focus on the production of radiopharmaceuticals. Furthermore, attention is given to the added value of GMP as a tool for providing more insights and awareness. Working under GMP conditions leads to potentially faster problem solving in daily practice, as compared to the “skills-only”-based approach. The latter had been a mainstay for a long time but is being more and more replaced by a “skills-based and oversight approach” nowadays.
