This live training webinar focus on the building blocks of the Quality Management System (QMS). Those building blocks are to assure that operations are in control and maintained in their validated state. It involves systems of checks and balances, methods of measurement to detect disturbances and systems to assure that changes introduced deliver improvements or are at least neutral in their effects. All of this is to assure that the products made are what was developed and promised to the regulatory bodies and what is best for the patient. The philosophy is that quality must be built in rather than tested in.

We will describe the building blocks that you will need in place which are described in ICH Q7 – GMPs for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients and ICH Q10 – Pharmaceutical Quality Systems, which is based in ISO 9000. These include the overall Quality Philosophy defined in Quality Manuals, Quality Polices and Quality Planning; it includes the Document Management System, Personnel Learning and Development and the role Management plays in setting the culture to assure it is executed.

In a modern QMS, decisions are science and data driven with risk-based approaches (ICH Q9 – Quality Risk Management) incorporated. This entails controls over facilities and equipment, production controls, product assessments and controls, and materials controls.

Internal audits, self-inspections, quality metrics and annual product reviews are tools to assess how well we are doing versus our goals, which will allow course corrections to be made with continuous management assessment and actions. The change control system plays a pivotal role in assuring that all changes contemplated are both value added and appropriate as well as managed well to lead to success which ultimately is to focus on the patient.
