One of the top trends for the pharmaceutical industry in 2018 is quality oversight. Do you know the difference between quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC)? And is your quality management system (QMS) up to snuff should FDA auditors come knocking?
As you know, your manufacturing processes—whether related to pharma, biotech, or medical devices—come under strict scrutiny from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as to quality. Your company-specific requirements must be spelled out in your quality manual and underlie your entire quality management system (QMS). Still, many companies do not have clearly defined or differentiated QC and QA practices—and FDA audits frequently uncover non-compliant QC and QA practices.
Don’t risk your ability to gain speedy market approval for products. Join Joy McElroy, quality expert in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries, for this in-depth session on how to distinguish between QA and QC—both in terms of quality practices and personnel. During the presentation, you will learn how to effectively establish two distinct rigorous programs to prevent compliance violations and delays in marketing your product.
McElroy will clue you in to the best procedural implementations for top-quality QA and QC functions. She will also identify the common QA- and QC-related findings from an FDA audit—and how to address the agency’s findings.
After attending this program, you will be able to answer these key questions:
