This course will review regulatory guidance governing Suppliers and the elements of a robust supplier management program including, initial qualification, supplier performance monitoring, and scorecards, supplier audit options, and quality agreement requirements. It will discuss how to utilize risk-based quality tools to determine supplier classification with a risk assessment example. Recent FDA audit findings will also be reviewed.
Regulatory expectations are clear about manufactures’ responsibility regarding supplier quality oversight. All regulatory agencies agree that pharmaceutical and medical device manufactures are responsible for ensuring their suppliers adhere to quality standards, maintain compliance to regulatory requirements and consistently meet established expectations. Therefore, it is essential pharmaceutical and medical device organizations develop and implement a robust supplier management program.
A robust program is one that utilizes a comprehensive life-cycle approach that manages suppliers from initial qualification through phase-out. In other words, from cradle to grave. A robust, yet efficient, supplier management program is one that also utilizes risk-based methodology to determine supplier criticality and the required level of oversight.
This course will present an example Supplier Management Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and Quality Agreement template. This course will also include a discussion on how to utilize risk-based quality tools to determine supplier classification. An example supplier risk assessment will be reviewed during the course.
Finally, in order to understand real-life consequences associated with non-compliant supplier management programs, recent FDA audit findings will be reviewed and discussed.Areas Covered in the Webinar:
