This live training webinar will provide valuable information on the latest requirements of an effective batch record review process from an operational and regulatory perspective. It will interpret what the FDA and other regulatory agencies such as Health Canada and EU say and what they mean and expect. It will describe how and when to implement a system that is lean and cost effective yet compliant, in an ever-changing regulatory landscape using quality risk based methods. It will describe how to keep appropriate control over the processes and products without burdening the business. These tiered, risk based processes will allow low risk elements to be evaluated quickly, effectively and simply yet exert appropriate checks and controls on those which can have high impact on your product and the patient. It will include models of systems that will allow you to benchmark your processes to determine whether they are as robust and efficient as you believe. With the introduction of new technologies, we will examine how the batch record review process is changing to accommodate them. Case studies will be included so you can examine your own operations for telltale signs of potential failure or weakness.
