This webinar will discuss about two “Strategic Priorities” that the FDA has published to emphasize their future directions vis a vis regulated industry and public safety.
Each year companies are to perform a complete review of their quality management system and its ability to meet the current GMP’s. The FDA has added a “Strategic Priorities” initiative that can assist companies to proactively address areas of GMP concern — there are now two such reports – we will discuss both, emphasizing the latest “draft for public comment”, for 2014 – 2018. The reports reflect a major shift in the emphasis of the U.S. FDA cGMP compliance audits, clinical trial expectations, product submissions and company response requirements. In short, all regulatory areas are under evaluation by the FDA, and need to be revisited by a company’s QA/RA and its senior management / staff.
This change in focus has a major impact on interpretation of individual compliance objectives, cGMP objectives, and measurements of success. Ongoing negative publicity on pharmaceuticals, devices, as well as events in unrelated industries show many senior executives just don’t get it, and have put pressure on the Agency to “get tough on compliance / enforcement”.
This webinar will trigger such a response by an examination / review of FDA’s stated concerns for corporate cGMP compliance and public safety
