This training program will explain what the strengths and weaknesses of the RACT are and where it should be used with caution. It will also elaborate on what needs to be done to establish a comprehensive risk management approach to support risk-based quality management in clinical trials.

Why Should You Attend:

In 2013 TransCelerate issued the RACT (Risk Assessment and Categorization Tool) and made it publicly available to everyone including instruction on how to use it. The RACT has been referred to as a standard, being the result of the combined brainpower of about 20 large pharmaceutical companies.

After the RACT was published it also got quite a lot of attention from the regulators, and not much later, presentations by regulators at conferences emphasized that they think the design of this tool is suboptimal. Nevertheless, the RACT is still in everyone’s mind and companies try to build IT systems around it using the catalogue of RACT items as a basis. However, will those systems and approaches stand scrutiny? This webinar will analyze this question with insight into the strengths and weaknesses of the RACT and how you can still use it in an improved way.
