Why Should You Attend
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are required by law for companies that are regulated by the Code of Federal Regulations such as Title 21 and Title 493. Yet there is no guidance on how to write, organize and maintain SOPs. Consequently, SOPs are frequently written in a way that makes compliance difficult or downright impossible. Worse, this often leads to many regulatory errors that first come to light during a FDA audit.
This webinar will show you how to write, organize, and maintain SOPs and train personnel in a way that will ensure compliance in a way that is concise, reproducible and easy to follow.
