Venue: online Training Webinars
|Event Date/Time: Jun 08, 2011||End Date/Time: Jun 08, 2011|
Suppliers and vendors play a key role in accomplishing these mandates and it is the firm's responsibility to make sure vendors/suppliers are meeting specifications for the supplied materials, components, equipment and/or services.
For many years, industry has implemented procedures for selection, approval and qualification of suppliers and vendors. However, in many cases these protocols were not being implemented effectively or formally documented. Making these programs part of a risk-based quality systems approach that the FDA and other regulatory agencies have come to expect from industry is critical. This webinar will discuss how to implement a process for selection, audit, approval and qualification of vendors/suppliers based on the material/equipment/service being delivered.
We will also discuss the regulatory expectations and other industrial references/standards that will impact your system and will include the general requirements of a vendor/supplier (outsourcing) control program followed by specific requirements for different types of supplied materials/equipment/services.

The components of a Supplier/Vendor Qualification/Audit program.
