Product Reviews are often requested by regulatory investigators. Annual Product Reviews have been a requirement of the US GMPs for pharmaceutical products since 1978. Since the turn of the century EU and Canada have included a requirement for Annual Product Quality Reviews in their regulations or guidances covering drug products. Inadequate Annual Product Reviews has been the subject of US FDA 483 observations and Warning Letters. The concept of ongoing product, process and system reviews is a vital part of the philosophy of continuous improvement found in the Pharmaceutical Quality System outlined in ICH Q10 and the FDA Guidance to the Industry: “Quality Systems Approach to Pharmaceutical GMP Regulations”. Metrics that relate to the Product Review will be part of the FDA Quality Metrics Program and increase the importance of the Product Review. Product Reviews are a vital component of an effective Quality System and will increase in importance in the coming years.

In this live training webinar we will discuss the world-wide regulatory requirements for Annual Product Reviews (or Product Quality Reviews). The new focus on management involvement in the Product Review process, driven by the FDA Quality Metrics program will be discussed. Different geographic requirements for product review content will be discussed and evaluated. These requirements will also be related to the evolution of regulations and Quality Systems. Systems for the preparation of the product review will be discussed. Finally, we will discuss the expectation for product, process, and quality system review to support the evolving regulatory expectation for continuous improvement within a contemporary Pharmaceutical Quality System.
