Risk and Regulatory Compliance

Don’t miss the 2018 Midwest FDC Conference

October 3, 2018 at Wojcik Conference Center – Harper College

Palatine, Illinois

Regulatory authorities have embraced science-based risk management.  As the supply chain becomes more complex, risk awareness and quality aspects in general become more important.
All countries involved in regulated industries should have quality processes for sourcing of materials, manufacturing, packaging, testing, storage, and distribution.  These quality processes provide rationale to understand risk, as well as to mitigate it through appropriate and robust controls.

You will learn how to take a strategic approach to validating computer systems that are regulated by FDA in a way that will be cost effective and efficient. The webinar will go through the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) methodology in detail, and we will demonstrate how the SDLC supports Computer System Validation (CSV).

This webinar will help you understand in detail Computer System Validation (CSV) and how to apply the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Methodology when validating computer systems subject to FDA regulations. This is critical in order to develop the appropriate validation strategy and achieve the thoroughness required to prove that a system does what it purports to do. It also ensures that a system is maintained in a validated state throughout its entire life cycle, from conception through retirement. We will discuss the phases within the SDLC, and how these forms the basis for any CSV project. The importance of the sequence of steps will also be covered.

Why Should You Attend

An FDA inspection or audit is something to take very seriously, and it’s important to have all computer systems that are regulated by FDA fully validated. In this FDA Compliance training, you will learn how to validate computer systems in compliance with FDA’s guidelines and also how to maintain them in a validated state. This will provide you with a level of certainty that you will be able to respond to FDA questions and provide the documentation necessary to defend your approach and body of work.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about industry best practices related to compliance and computer system validation
  • Learn about strategies for reducing the cost and complexity of compliance with FDA regulations
  • Understand how the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) methodology supports the computer system validation process
  • ….. and more

FDA’s Expectations from Supplier Management for GMP: Quality Agreements and More – Webinar

Promoted by: ASQ-Dallas Food, Drug & Cosmetics SIG

Live Webinar on Oct 12, 2018 | 1:00 PM ET | 12:00 PM CT | 10:00 AM PT | 60 Minutes | By: Danielle DeLucy

The FDA requires that manufacturers of pharmaceutical products have a documented process to assess its suppliers and contract manufacturers, that they have implemented that process, and that the process is effective. This training program will explore how having an effective supplier relationship management program will result in streamlining the supply chain, ensuring a more consistent level of quality components, materials and components, and be more cost effective to the manufacturer.

Why Should You Attend

Failure to adequately assess and control your supplier/subcontractor pool can result in dire consequences for an organization. Assessing and approving your suppliers before placing the first order with them will eliminate many headaches for a medical device manufacturer.

Many organizations conduct supplier audits because they are required to do so by their customers or a regulatory agency. Others conduct the audits because they have been led to believe that it’s a good tool for comparing various suppliers against an arbitrary list of criteria.

While all of these reasons have varying degrees of validity, none of them articulate the best reason for having a robust supplier audit program. A good supplier audit program should allow an organization to assess and periodically re-affirm the ability of key suppliers to provide conforming product consistently, reliably and on-time. It should be one of the most important initiatives toward fulfilling the goal of having a sustainable supply chain.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the FDA’s requirements for medical device supplier assessment and approvals
  • Learning “who” are considered to be suppliers
  • Knowing how to structure a supplier quality agreement
  • Selecting the potential methods for evaluating and assessing suppliers

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Regulatory requirements for supplier qualification
  • Responsibilities of manufactures and suppliers
  • Best practices for supplier selection, qualification and management
  • What are the FDA’s expectations in regards to quality agreements?
  • What is meant by the title owner, contractor, adulterated drug, and the term manufacturing within the guidance?
  • Best practices for a good quality agreement
  • Supplier audits
  • Documentation requirements and audit trails

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) requirements for validation of your manufacturing and quality system software can conjure up a lot of questions. Understanding the actual guidelines and best practices for meeting these requirements isn’t always clear. Your software may be compliant, but you may not be. This webinar provides you answers to the top most Six common software validation and documentation questions asked by the others in FDA regulated industries and express the best practices for meeting the instruction.

The FDA mandates that software used for the design, manufacture, packaging, labeling, storage, installation, and servicing of all finished devices intended for human use shall be validated. While ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley) regulations are not as clear about the validation process, they have to need that software development lifecycle processes be followed in areas where they apply because software validation demonstrates evidence which provides a best result of assurance that a specific process will always generate the expected result or output of the given input.

Documentation is required for Regulatory Validation:

  • Software Validation Protocol (Validation Plan)
  • System /Software Requirements Specification
  • Network Diagram
  • Risk Analysis
  • 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance Analysis
  • Verification Protocol (Test Plan)

Session Highlights:

  • Computer System Validation (CSV)
  • System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Methodology
  • Good “Variable” Practice (GxP) (Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), Good Clinical Practice (GCP))
  • User Requirements Specification (URS) to include high-level needs in language familiar to the user
  • Operational Qualification (OQ)
  • System Acceptance by the user or owner of the system
  • ….. and more
