This change control webinar training will provide essential compliance information on current regulatory standards under 21 C.F.R. and FDA’s Guidance Documents and Draft Guidance Documents for managing DMFs and associated Change Control effects and implementation strategies.

Why Should You Attend:
This Webinar, will give a brief overview of Drug Master Files (DMFs) and their commonalities with Device Master Files (MAFs), Veterinary Master Files (VMFs), and Master Files for Biologics found as either DMFs within CBER or CDER or in Biologics Licensing Applications (hereinafter collectively referred to as “DMFs”). This will enable participants to place the matter of DMFs in context as we explore the effect of Change Control on manufacturers and their up-stream customers.

We will then plumb the depths of the manufacturing processes and procedures as well administrative matters that are affected by or effect Change Control crises. In discussing the complexities of managing Change Control no matter where your company is in the Supply Chain, we will also delve into legal agreements such as sales and supply agreements, safety agreements, outsourcing agreements, and agreements within mergers and acquisitions for growth, spin-offs, or downsizing — all of which can be the cause of or affected by Change Control mishaps.

Change Control crises can emerge full blown from such a small singular event as the example given by a kingdom’s loss triggered by a soldier’s horse losing a nail in one of its horseshoes — “for want of a nail the shoe was lost . . ..” A Change Control crisis can accrete like silt in a dam through a manufacturer’s years of lack of proper recordkeeping of procedures. And, as a final example, we will explore how a Change Control crisis can be a corporate train wreck — involving many trains, many companies — if the Change Control origins are traceable to lack of proper recognition and recordkeeping for the DMF associated with a product or facility subject to the terms of an agreement in a merger, acquisition, spin-off, downsizing, or outsourcing, even if the corporate agreement that was the catalyst occurred decades ago.

This Webinar will provide essential executive and supervisory level compliance information on current regulatory standards under 21 C.F.R. and FDA’s Guidance Documents and Draft Guidance Documents for managing DMFs and associated Change Control effects and implementation strategies.
