Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will review FDA’s regulations related to suppliers in manufacture of drugs, biologics and medical devices. It will discuss the current regulations, guidance documents and best practices for supplier management and enforceable quality agreement using case studies for a variety of scenarios. Common FDA audit findings will be discussed.

Why Should You Attend:

Suppliers form a critical element of the GMP compliance status of a manufacturer. Supplier could be used for pretty much any aspect of manufacturing such as raw material, components, packaging, shipping, and even finished product. It is the responsibility of a manufacturer to assure that all its suppliers are compliant with FDA’s current GMP requirements applicable to their operations. Supplier management starts with appropriate qualification, contracts, and quality agreements, and requires continuing quality assurance (QA) practices including sampling and testing, and supplier audits. FDA compliant quality systems require a vigorous supplier qualification process and robust quality agreements with all suppliers. The recently proposed FDA draft guidance on Quality Agreements describes the relationship between owners and contractors, and defines all the expectations for both parties when it comes to complying with GMP requirements.

This webinar will describe FDA’s expectations from manufactures and suppliers alike. Common FDA findings related to suppliers during GMP audits will be discussed with potential remedies. It will also discuss content and structure of SOPs for supplier qualification and quality agreements. The US regulations will be compared with those in the EU to identify common themes across different regulatory agencies and ways to comply.
