Product Description

The ‘What’ and ‘How’ to Do to Exercise Better Supplier Control

Device manufacturers are required to establish and maintain procedures to ensure all purchased or otherwise received products and services conform to their specified requirements. A significant number of product recalls (due to component failures) have resulted from a manufacturer’s failure to adequately establish and follow purchasing control and in particular, supplier control. There have been a number of FDA warning letters issued for violating purchasing control regulations. 

This conference by expert speaker Dr. David Lim, Ph.D., RAC, ASQ-CQA is intended to discuss adequate purchasing control requirements and to focus on suppliers to ensure that the firm’s purchasing control procedures are adequately established and maintained. In particular, you will understand what to do and how to do (“Do's”). If you already have purchasing control procedures, you can still join this conference to make sure your procedures contain all the necessary requirements for suppliers pursuant to applicable laws, regulations or standards. 

At the end of the conference, you will become familiar with the best practices for purchasing control including supplier requirements and control. In this 60-minute presentation, Dr. Lim will guide you through the details of “Do's” to better control suppliers.
