This training on FDA supplier controls will help you refine your supplier chain management and vendor audits to match the FDA's tougher position. We will evaluate the chief areas of change to see how to better prepare a supplier chain management and audit program.

Why Should You Attend:

Recent FDA statements and actions indicate the past ways of managing a company's supply chain / outsourcing will no longer be acceptable. Increasingly reports from the field indicate that the agency is using high-profile cases to drive compliance to smaller companies and suppliers. CGMP compliance cannot be passed on to suppliers; however suppliers must meet specific CGMP requirements. Proof for better science is also a new expectation. "Business as usual" is never acceptable.

There has been a major shift in the emphasis of U.S. FDA requirements for supplier CGMP compliance. The FDA has implemented major global initiatives. Companies are required to tightly manage their entire supply chain. The infrastructure behind the COA / COC is being challenged. Such changes in focus has a major impact on individual compliance objectives, efforts and measurements of success. The agency has come under increasing negative publicity due to major publicized product failures / recalls, leading to public concern over insufficient oversight of the entire medical product supply chain, including global outsourcing. Of both raw materials, components, as well as services. Better science requirement impacts suppliers as well. All this is affecting the agency's approach to audits and their expectations for companies.
