SPEAKER: John E. Lincoln

This webinar will examine the stated intent of the Agency to get tougher across the board in its expectations for the medical industry and its compliance to the cGMPs.

It will examine how these goals of the Agency have translated into action over the past two plus years: The changing focus of QSIT re: medical devices, and ICH Q8, Q9, and Q10 re: pharmaceuticals; Multi-site company operations, and the supply chain; Trends evident in 483 observations, Warning Letters, and recent major industry failures; Emphasis on proving a company is "in control" to an investigator's satisfaction; the negative role of "entropy", and proactive and reactive Warning Letter avoidance techniques.

Why you should attend: The last few years have seen several major "names" in drugs and devices stumble over cGMP issues, resulting in recalls, lawsuits, and even possible criminal prosecution. As a result, there has been a major shift in the emphasis of the U.S. FDA cGMP compliance audit, also affecting clinical trial expectations, product submissions and company response requirements. This change in focus has a major impact on interpretation of individual compliance objectives, cGMP objectives, and measurements of success. Recent negative publicity on pharmaceuticals, devices, as well as events in unrelated industries has put pressure on the Agency to "get tough on compliance / enforcement". The public wants change. The U.S. FDA is responding. The cGMP compliance audit, validations, 510(k) submissions / data, "better science", lifecycles, closed-loop CAPA, outsourcing / globalization and supply chain / control issues, and senior management, are all under more intense scrutiny.
