Why Should You Attend:

Recent FDA statements and actions indicate the past ways of managing a company's supply chain / outsourcing are not acceptable. The U.S. FDA has opened eleven of it's own branches in Mainland China, India, and other major areas of the world to train their local counterparts and to better address and audit regulatory compliance of suppliers of medical products and components destined for the U.S. CGMP compliance cannot be passed on to suppliers.

Of both raw materials, components, as well as services. Combination product add further complexity. "Better science" requirement impacts suppliers as well.
