December 12, 2012 (Newswire) - This webinar is about the FDA's recently instituted annual "Strategic Priorities" initiative, with emphasis on what it has for 2013. Each year, companies are to perform a complete review of their quality management system and its ability to meet the current GMP's. The FDA has now added a "Strategic Priorities" initiative that is aimed at assisting companies to proactively address areas of GMP concern.
There is a major shift in the emphasis of the U.S. FDA cGMP compliance audits, clinical trial expectations, product submissions and company response requirements. All regulatory areas are under evaluation by the FDA, and need to be revisited by a company's QA/RA and its senior management. This change in focus, brought about byrecent negative publicity on pharmaceuticals, devices, as well as events in unrelated industries, has a major impact on interpretation of individual compliance objectives, cGMP objectives, and indices of success.
This webinar will take a look at the list of FDA's mandatory requirements for corporate cGMP compliance. It will discuss the major 510 (K) changes already proposed, and will help organizations anticipate and address weak points of their quality management system. This will boost their chances of meeting compliance objectives.
