Why Should You Attend:

This webinar will provide valuable information on the regulations of the USA, Canada and the EU as they apply to your management of vendors of services and materials and how the agencies are changing their interpretations. We will examine successful workable processes that are compliant with the regulations and yet efficient from a business perspective, and show how companies meet these stringent regulations.

The incorporation of risk management into the development and execution of the program will be highlighted for clinical as well as commercial products, irrespective of whether they are manufactured within your own plants or in your contract manufacturer's facilities. You will also see how companies run foul of the agencies resulting in warning letters as the agency steps up interpretation and enforcement and how from this information you will be able to assure that you do not suffer the same fate.
