Topic Background:

Your company has ultimate responsibility to ensure that all operations related to the manufacture, packaging, and testing of your products are conducted in compliance with applicable regulatory requirements. This includes in-house and outsourced operations. Furthermore, the FDA has recently placed increased focus on the need for companies to perform regular quality audits. Particular focus has been placed on the use of supplier audits to assure supply chain integrity. Therefore, conducting effective quality audits is essential to meeting regulatory requirements. Audits are also essential in identifying potential problem areas for improvement. Proactively identifying and making your own improvements is highly preferable to having a regulatory authority identify your problems for you.

Most companies have good audit procedures and trained auditors. However, effective quality audits require more than just determining IF a requirement is being met. It is equally as important to fully understand HOW the requirement is being met. As such, today’s audits must focus on objective evidence of WHAT is being done, and HOW it is being done. Audits must also be comprehensive, and focus on system-level issues. In order to meet these goals, auditors must have technical, process, and procedural knowledge of the audit’s subject areas. Auditors should also work in cooperation and partnership with parties being audited.
