Agreeing to an FDA foreign inspection requires careful preparation on a firm’s part. If you do not manage your inspection wisely, you will set yourself up for disaster. We will cover fundamental issues, such as pre-inspection tasks, preparing your documents and having an interpreter before, during and after the inspection. We will also address how you should respond to inspectional problems noted by the FDA..
Manufacturers of foods, drugs, consumer goods, and other products must determine the shelf life of their products so that customers know when the product can be expected to perform as intended. Many approaches are available to quantify the "shelf life" and the method(s) chosen often depend on the testing time available.This webinar discusses the steps to set-up a stability study and analyzes the results to ..
The purpose of the Regulatory inspection is an activity that should demonstrate that your company is operating according to the proper CFR requirements and maintaining a state of compliance. The key to a successful audit is being able to communicate how your quality systems assure this state of control. Many times, the arrival of a Regulatory Investigator is a daunting experience for some. In this webinar, ..
FDA and EU regulations require that firms have a program for the calibration and maintenance of test and measurement equipment. The program must include intervals, scheduling, specific procedures, limits of accuracy/precision, and remedial action in the event that the equipment does not meet established requirements. Prior to use, however, this equipment must be validated to make sure it produces a product ..
Inadequate investigation of out-of-specification (OOS) results in the laboratory is a common observation cited in FDA 483s and Warning Letters. It is clear that regulatory investigators throughout the world are looking at laboratory operations very closely. Specifically, there is a concern as to whether the laboratory and the company apply good science to the investigation of laboratory test results that ar..
How can companies address the U.S. FDA’s tougher stance and product, process and QMS V&V? One major failing is the lack of sufficient or targeted risk-based V&V Master Planning. Why do companies need a Validation Master Plan? What is it? How is it structured? Supporting systems/documents? How should each individual V&V plan be structured? Clarification of validation terms. Device, product, proce..
Aseptic technique, in sterile compounding, contributes to prevent microbiological contamination. Aseptic technique is being used to provide safety, efficacy, and sterility to the products that are sterile in nature, especially when it comes to various patient injections. This course by expert speaker Danielle DeLucy will benefit those Aseptic operators, Aseptic sample handlers, personnel who work in a Biolo..
The FDA governs the computer systems used to collect, analyze, transfer and report data that is in support of human clinical trials required for drug approval. FDA oversight is based on a Predicate Rule, known as “Good Clinical Practices,” or simply, “GCPs.” Computer systems subject to GCP requirements must be thoroughly and appropriately validated in accordance with FDA’s guidance on computer system valida..
There are many different types of microbial contamination that can occur in pharmaceutical manufacturing. Some of the sources include water, raw materials, excipients, in-process materials and samples, the manufacturing process, the product itself, the environment and the like. As such, there is no one size fits all investigation. Microbiological testing covers a wide range of products, processes, and..
This webinar will highlight difficulties in obtaining relevant and useful dissolution results based on current practices. This will be followed by the description of principles of drug dissolution testing leading to a simple and common set of experimental conditions reflecting a bio-relevant method. The discussion will be presented describing that the suggested bio-relevant method would become a QC method a..
Standard Operating Procedures and work instructions – the documentation required by regulation – is essential to the effective and compliant running of any regulated business. Unfortunately, many individuals in those businesses miss the valuable opportunities that properly developed Standard Operating Procedures/Work Instructions can provide. Regulated documentation can serve a variety of purposes other tha..
Pragmatic Approach to Pharmacovigilance/Drug Safety System Update Against the Latest New Requirements
In the last year/recent months, there have been a lot of changes in the pharmacovigilance requirements especially impacting the reporting to EudraVigilance, the Signal Detection Management (e.g. inclusion of EudraVigilance Data Analysis System as part of the Signal Detection Management, etc.) and the Risk Management activities. The course is aimed at providing some practical examples of the application of t..
Experimentation is frequently performed using trial and error approaches which are extremely inefficient and rarely lead to optimal solutions. Furthermore, when it’s desired to understand the effect of multiple variables on an outcome (response), “one-factor-at-a-time” trials are often performed. Not only is this approach inefficient, it inhibits the ability to understand and model how multiple variab..
This webinar will analyze each of these necessary elements of the batch record review process.Most Regulatory Agencies require firms to have written procedures in place to document production and process controls, better known as batch records. Additionally, there must be written procedures for a batch record review process that demonstrate compliance. A strong batch record review system is essential in ord..
FDA Regulations Associated with the Detection, Correction and Prevention of Human Errors in GMP Manufacturing and Laboratory Processes
We are often quick to ascribe fault to people rather than our systems, facilities, and operations. However, in this class, we will learn how to tell if you are too quick to ascribe guilt to people rather than probe deeper. We will focus on improved techniques to get to the real cause of the problem. With this information, you will be able to develop meaningful CAPAs that have a chance to remedy these proble..
