Supplier qualification and assessment is required in both the QSR regulations and ISO standards. Many companies spend a great deal of time and money in pursuit of compliance with this. Many companies can spend MUCH LESS time and money, and still be in control of their suppliers and in compliance with the regulations

Complaint handling is likely one of the more cross-functional parts of your quality system: Customer Service may receive your customer complaints, Sales and Marketing may need to reach out to the customer for additional information, Regulatory Affairs may determine whether the complaint is reportable, QA may perform the root cause investigation, R&D or Manufacturing Engineering may need to be involved in the corrective action, and Quality Engineering may need to trend the complaints! This session will include the requirements for all of the above responsibilities, which will include defining, documenting, and implementing a complaint-handling system, the requirements for complaint review, investigation, and corrective action, as well as ISO-specific implications. Also covered will be a discussion of what constitutes a complaint, and recommended practice on how to handle "non-complaint" feedback. Also covered will be the application of risk management to a complaint handling system, and a specific risk management system explained.

Recorded Session

The FDA inspection is the most nerve-wracking event in the life of a regulatory professional - you're in charge of compliance, usually in the background, and NOW you're in the spotlight, and if your performance isn't good, it's not the show that may close, it's YOUR COMPANY! However, adequate planning, training, composure, and understanding should result in many encore presentations! This session will discuss how to prepare for the inspection, what to do during the inspection and the close-out interview, and how to respond to the inspection. Also contained in this session will be the limits of FDA's scope during an inspection, including what documents you are not required to show them, and the permissibility of photographs and affidavits.

This course provides medical device/pharmaceutical professionals with the information they need to prepare for and manage any type of FDA inspection. This course provides the rationale, strategies and flow on how to plan for an inspection, the inspection process and approach, and which company roles should be assigned for these types of inspections, among other related topics.
