Are you ready to adapt your QMS to address significant changes and risks?

One of the main challenges that pharmaceutical and medical device companies face is ensuring that they have a robust Quality Management System that continually meets the requirements of all the regulations they must adhere to and keeps abreast of significant changes.

It can be any manner of change, such as:

• Changes in the business operations such as new product types, new commercial activities, and new supply chains

• New regulations and guidelines (ICH, ISO, CTR, NVR, MDR, Serialisation, etc.)

• Changes in personnel and facilities

Pharmaceutical companies need to recognize that their QMS is a holistic system and needs to be reviewed and amended as the company expands its products to new markets and introduces new regulatory responsibilities or commercial activities. For example, when launching in new territories, progressing from drug discovery to complete authorized clinical trials or from virtual manufacturing as a MAH to taking on commercial manufacturing activities or product distribution.

The inability to adapt to significant changes and the associated compliance risks are a surefire way to end up with a QMS that doesn’t reflect operations and pick up inspection deficiencies, FDA 483’s, and warning letters.

In this webinar, industry insider and QMS expert Charley Maxwell from Orion GXP Consulting explains how the QMS is a living, breathing system that needs regular health checks. As regulations and business operations adapt, so too must the QMS. It is never as simple as just slotting in some quick fixes that mimic the wording in the revised regulations or doing the bare minimum to meet the needs of the new operation.

Instead, he explains the advantages and introduces tools for a thorough gap analysis each time there is a significant change to review the QMS against the new regulation or commercial process. It ensures that the benefits and risks of every operation and process explained in the revised QMS are weighed and adequately assessed. It also allows the company to tabulate all the gaps, get a holistic overview of the resource needs, and make informed choices with the senior management teams.
