Why Should You Attend:

Internal auditing of pharmaceutical manufacturing operations is a common part of most quality system plans today. There are many different ways to accomplish internal auditing, and some ways are better than others. When done properly, internal auditing does more than just create another list of Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA) to complete. It can be a means to help an employee decide that they do not need to talk to the FDA or another Agency regarding their concerns with the plants’ compliance status.

This webinar will provide insight into how to conduct an internal audit program that is effective. It will discuss:

  • What works and what doesn’t work in organizing an internal audit program?
  • FDA’s expectations in what the regulated firm must do with the information that it obtains from the internal audit program.
  • Who should be involved in the conduct of the internal audit?

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Regulations regarding internal audit programs
  • Reasons for performing internal audits
  • Management responsibility and ICH Q10
  • Ground rules for conducting internal audits
  • Auditor objectivity
  • Benefits of a well-designed internal audit program
  • Whistleblower laws
  • Reporting to Management
  • Dealing with the employee with concerns
  • Follow-up on action items

Topic Background:

We live in a litigious society today. This is no more evident than in the pharmaceutical industry. If you watch television on any given day you will see the advertising for the lawyers looking to file suit against pharmaceutical companies. Pharmaceutical company employees also have been known to call the FDA or other regulatory agency when they feel that their concerns regarding the company’s compliance to GMPs or other regulations are being ignored. Through legal precedent, the FDA has gained the authority to visit and interview your employees outside of the work environment, thus outside of the influence of their supervisors and managers.

The internal audit program provides a means, when properly executed, to provide an independent and listening ear to those employees within the company that have concerns regarding the firms compliance to regulatory requirements, while the problem may still be resolved in-house. It can provide valuable information to Senior Management about the compliance status of the company, that when responded to in a timely and effective way can potentially result in savings of millions of dollars.
