Why Should You Attend:

Establishing and maintaining a clear foundation for internal compliance and relevant vendor oversight throughout the life-cycle of your clinical program … right through regulatory market approval and launch is highly important. As the sponsor, you are responsible even if you outsource 99 percent of your clinical program, or are deep into organizational change, etc. A robust QMS is a must requirement by Global regulators regardless of company size, situation, or outsourcing strategy.

Global regulators are increasing their emphasis on Clinical Quality Systems as evidenced ICH E6 R2. By maintaining a strong, documented quality system, you demonstrate that processes are in place to allow companies fully define, evaluate, and mitigate their own compliance to regulatory requirements, guidelines, and industry standards and to that of their vendors. Having a robust Clinical Quality System, will enable companies to see, define and discuss the big picture of how they are making sure that data is of high integrity and that patients are safe.

The number of small to midsize companies in pharmaceutical and biotech companies are increasing over the last decade. This increase clubbed with the growing vendor industry has formed a new normal, including a surge in the number of management-level positions in all fields. Although exciting times for the industry, this evolution is creating some gaps in experience when it comes to quality and compliance management.

From a quality systems perspective, the industry must take a growth approach to understanding how to build quality systems that will allow us to provide ongoing assurance of data integrity and patient safety.

This webinar will show how you can develop robust quality management systems (QMS), abide by the global regulatory authority regulations and guidelines, and have the level of documentation required to reconstruct -and defend- every aspect of clinical trials.
