Read Frequently Asked Questions

Supply chains for life-sciences are important now and growing in importance as device manufacturers outsource products and services low cost destinations it is becoming longer, more diverse, and more difficult to control. The medical device manufacturer, however, has the ultimate responsibility for the product, so supply chain management becomes a critical function. As part of their Quality Management System (QMS) requirements, manufacturers must evaluate, select, and monitor suppliers.

This training package on supply chain for life sciences companies will help them to understand the regulatory requirements for their supply chain planning, processes, risk management and how to stay compliant per FDA norms.

How It Works:

Each training CD has a series of modules. Our speakers have delivered the modules using PowerPoint slides.

This training is convenient to attend individually or in groups. You don’t have to travel from your office. This means you can afford to have your whole team attend.
