Map and Directions

We all know that the quality of your products depends on the quality of your people and the effectiveness of your Quality Management System (QMS). In fact, as Qualified Persons (QPs) and quality professionals, you can’t release product and stay in business unless your QMS is ‘in control’. This is easier said than done. Supply chains are more complex than ever before and you are being asked to do more with less, and faster! It is not surprising that failures in QMS are a key reason for severe regulatory action in Europe and the USA.

This course will provide you with answers to some really tough questions.

What You Will Learn

  • How to meet the ever increasing demands of global regulatory agencies, both now and in the future
  • How to succeed when others have failed and implement ICH Q10 (Pharmaceutical Quality Systems) successfully throughout the product lifecycle
  • Contractors and third parties – how to manage quality across your supply chain, no matter how complex
  • How to simplify every aspect of your QMS to reduce bureaucracy and improve speed and flexibility
  • How the best in class manage quality to improve their competitive edge and improve regulatory compliance

Course Outline

  • Understanding regulatory trends and requirements (EU and FDA)
  • ICH Q8, 9 and 10: how to implement and maintain across the product lifecycle
  • How to manage quality at suppliers and third parties and maintain ‘quality oversight’
  • The essential elements of an effective and simple documentation system
  • Validation: the ‘modern paradigm’
  • Deviation reporting systems that drive continuous improvement
  • Simple and effective change management (yes, it is possible!)
  • Complaints and recall procedures that work
  • Technical agreements: management of third parties
  • Good distribution practices and cold chain management
  • Audit and self-inspection: designing and implementing sensitive and reliable programmes
  • The role of senior management and the ‘quality professional’
  • Risk management and risk-based decision making

Discussion and working in groups

A significant proportion of the course time will be devoted to group work, where delegates have the opportunity, through case studies, to put theory into practice. Additionally, discussion periods, including a course tutor panel session, provide delegates with an opportunity to obtain answers to their specific question and concerns.
