3-hr Virtual Seminar: The ISO 13485 and ICH-10 Quality Manuals for the FDA Regulated Industry


Instructor: Howard Cooper
Product ID: 705843
Training Level: Intermediate to Advanced

  • Duration: 3 Hrs
This webinar explains how the ISO 13485 (Medical Devices) & ICH Q10 (Pharmaceuticals) quality manuals create a systematic, formal and collaborative approach for establishing roles, authorities and responsibilities in the planning, development, and implementation of inter-functional cGMP procedures (i.e. Incoming Material Control, Change Control, & Design Control), required by FDA regulations. Particularly applicable are 21 CFR Parts 210-211, Parts 803, 810 & 820, & ICH Q7A. The Quality Manual (QM) synchronizes the law and regulations with quality principles, industry practice, and the writings of “quality gurus”. The organization of the QM’s Table of Contents predicts how well the company understands and practices quality concepts.

Why Should You Attend:

By studying relationship between quality and quality system, we can better understand the role of the quality manual. Juran* defines quality as “The totality of features and characteristics of a product or service that bear on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs.” Then, he defines the quality system as “the organizational structure, responsibilities, procedures, processes, and resources for implementing quality management.”

The goal of the quality manual is to achieve product quality by formalizing the system for the design, manufacture, and marketing products satisfying multi-faceted needs and requirements.

For the health professional, it provides consistent and reliable product performance.

For the patient, it fulfills the need for restored health.

For the FDA, it provides documented evidence that processes are in control.

The quality manual is the core system, a set of, commonly owned procedures created through collaboration and multi-function approval, which ensure product quality and compliance.
