Manufacturing Quality Agreements- Qualifying Suppliers & Managing Quality in FDA-Regulated Industries

Date: Wednesday, 22 November 2017 | Time: 08:30 AM PST, 11:30 AM EST | Duration: 75 Minutes
Quality agreements are an integral part of outsourced GMP manufacturing and testing. They define the framework for quality expectations between you and your vendors and the responsibilities necessary to demonstrate drug quality, safety, and efficacy. In 2016, the FDA issued dozens of 483 observations relating to topics governed by the quality agreement system. Furthermore, in November 2016, the FDA finalized the "Contract Manufacturing Arrangements for Drugs: Quality Agreements Guidance for Industry" document.
