Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will include a detailed discussion of Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMO) Quality Agreement topics such as change control, documentation, facilities and equipment, lab controls, sub-contracting, etc. Attendees will learn how to comply with new FDA and EU guidelines for contract drug manufacturers.

Why Should You Attend:

Control of suppliers such as Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMO) has always been a requirement of the FDA and EU. With the issuance of these new regulatory documents the expectation is that there will be a written documentation of this control. Proof of this control can be presented to FDA / EU inspectors in the form of a Quality Agreement which is specific to a particular CMO.

This webinar will provide a thorough understanding of the content that is expected in Quality Agreements from a regulatory perspective. Each proposed section of a Quality Agreement is fully analyzed and suggested content is written with the new guidelines taken into consideration. Comparison of the two regulatory documents will be presented with differences highlighted and discussed. The latest status of the FDA draft guidance will be discussed and a review of comments from industry is included.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • The who and what of a good Quality Agreement
  • What a Quality Agreement is - and is not

Topic Background:

In 2010, the global CMO market was estimated at $26 billion dollars. Year on year growth has been 10.7% since 2008. The increasing use of outsourcing in the pharmaceutical industry along with recent well publicized quality issues with CMOs, make it a necessity to have excellent quality oversight of external manufacturers to provide assurance of GMP compliance. A Quality Agreement is one tool used to accomplish this objective.

A Quality Agreement is a contract between a pharmaceutical firm and a GMP Contract Manufacturer detailing the responsibilities of each party in assuring the quality, safety and efficacy of the manufactured drug.

Recently, the EU and the FDA issued regulatory guidance to bring some clarity and consistency to these quality contracts:

  • EU GMP Chapter 7 "Outsourced Activities" (Revised)
  • Draft Guidance for Industry - "Contract Manufacturing Arrangements for Drugs: Quality Agreements" May 2013
