This webinar training will benefit manufacturers of manufactured products to achieve an effective, robust and compliant SOP and STM which will result in a cost effective and efficient manufacturing and testing of products. A well planned and written SOP or STM will reduce the incidence of out-of-specification (OOS) results, failure, product non-conformances, deviation and invalid assay investigations.

Why Should You Attend:

Designing an effective Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and Standard Test Method (STM) is the pre-requisite to complying with the regulations guiding the manufacturing and testing of products. FDA inspectional form 483 inspectional findings relates to inadequate personnel training as well as personnel not following written SOPs/STMs. Poorly written and planned standard operating procedures (SOP) and Test Methods containing vague, incomplete or ineffective instructions is open to incorrect interpretations by personnel. There have been conflicts between written procedures when compared with internal and external policies and regulations due to poor or inadequate planning of the process for writing SOPs and STMs. Organizational and management issues relating to document review, verification, approval and training of personnel has led to issues affecting the manufacture of products. The non-involvement of other impacted departments during the planning, review, processing and approval of the SOP or STM creates costly mistakes to manufacturers of drug products. Understanding how to design, develop, process, review and apply the use of a well written SOP or STM will reduce the number of deviations, false out of specification results, failure investigations and non-conformances associated with the manufacture of products.

This 90-minute training will benefit manufacturers of manufactured products to achieve an effective, robust and compliant SOP and STM which will result in a cost effective and efficient manufacturing and testing of products. A well planned and written SOP or STM will reduce the incidence of out-of-specification (OOS) results, failure, product non-conformances, deviation and invalid assay investigations.

The attendee will gain a better understanding of the sequence of designing, development, drafting, processing and approval of an effective and compliant SOP or STM. The industry applications, regulations, content, organization, development, management process/cycle, content and formatting of an SOP and STM will be discussed.

Understanding these requirements will aid in the reduction of manufacturing and testing errors arising from an unclear, poorly planned/executed and vague procedures that are left to several varying interpretations and applications which may sometimes lead to non-compliance.

Learning Objectives:

This webinar will provide the attendee the ability to:

  1. Understand a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and Standard Test Method (STM), its application and regulatory requirements.
  2. A Step by step process of how to develop, design, plan, draft, process, approve and maintain an effective and compliant SOP and STM.
  3. Understand the process of checking for/preventing conflicts between the draft SOP or STM and other internal or external procedures, company quality manuals/policies and regulatory documents.
  4. Reduce the number of Deviations, False Out-of-Specification (OOS) and Invalid Assay results that emanate from inadequate personnel training and compliance which may potentially impact the manufactured product or testing process.
  5. Understand the role of an SOP or STM, impact of an ineffective and non-compliant SOP or STM on the manufactured product.
  6. Understand the benefits of adequate planning, development and life cycle process of an SOP/STM in achieving compliance while reducing redundancies and increasing efficiencies.
