Why Should You Attend:

GxPs are required to be followed, not only by the sponsoring company, but also by all vendors who are chosen by the company to complete activities that must follow GxPs. These vendors include, but are not limited to contract research organizations, clinical investigators, manufacturers of drug substance and drug product used in clinical studies and commercialized, labelers and distributors, testing laboratories, warehouses and so on.

In order to ensure selection of vendors who are appropriate to complete the job, companies must have in place a robust program for qualifying vendors, contracting with them, managing and overseeing their activities and a program for mitigating against risks that may arise related to key vendors.
