Choosing and qualifying a supplier has become a critical factor in the overall manufacturing of a product. Providing the most complete regulatory foundation for FDA guidelines, this training course examines the qualification process and demonstrates best practices for initiating a state-of-the-art supplier qualification program. The curriculum begins by reviewing all regulatory expectations and new ISO guidelines to ensure your qualification program maintains FDA compliance throughout the processes. Current industry trends are discussed that compare cost-effective management of supplier qualification programs, including those pertaining to medical device companies. The course continues by analyzing strategies for implementing a Supplier/Vendor audit program for both manufacturing and laboratory facilities. Additional discussion on managing supplier's roles and responsibilities help establish effective, long-term relationships between the sponsor and the supplier, and help maintain overall GMP/GLP/GCP compliance. After completing the course, you will be able to assess effective vendor selection techniques, evaluate suppliers historical data and ultimately reveal best practices for qualifying and choosing quality suppliers and vendors.
