Description :

This webinar uses many graphical aids to enhance training. In addition, an indexed handout in electronic format will be included providing additional reference materials that may be explored by those interested in learning more.

Although the FDA and other regulatory authorities have written separate regulations and guidances for devices and pharmaceuticals, all GMP’s are based on the same quality principles. This can be readily seen by reviewing and comparing the table of contents for each cGMP regulations or guidance. These regulations/guidances have common elements such as management control, personnel, facilities and equipment, material controls, process control, laboratory, packaging labeling, distribution, recordkeeping, complaints, investigations and other common elements. These elements are frequently listed in the same order or some may be combined. However, they are either given in the regulation or are part of “industry practice”.

By studying and analyzing and comparing similarities and differences between several GMP quality systems, you will gain insight into how these systems operate to achieve customer satisfaction. This is particularly pertinent if your firm designs, manufactures, and markets combination products or several products that have separate GMP requirements. This webinar will provide ways that these systems may be harmonized between products into a single and combined GMP system. This will improve compliance and make the quality system more robust and effective.

This webinar begins by exploring the basic quality concepts and principles of the work of Juran, Deming, Crosby, and other “quality gurus”. Then the nature, definitions, and characteristics of devices, biologicals, pharmaceuticals, and combination products will be presented this to be followed by analyzing the contents of this CH Q7A, Part 210-211, Part 820, Part 600,and Part 1270-1271 to show similarities and differences. Reference will be made ISO 13485, and EU regulations as well as to ICH and GHTF guidances. Quality elements will be compared across all regulations.

Howard T Cooper, President, EQACT, Inc., Independent Consultant, has over 40 years of experience facing the challenges of managing, designing, developing, implementing, and mitigating GMP quality systems in the pharmaceutical, medical device, & food industries. He started his quality career at Anheuser-Busch as a quality management trainee which exposed him to an advanced and preventative approach toward quality. He then took this experience to the medical device industry when the medical device amendments of 1976 were being written and promulgated. He quickly distinguished himself as a change agent and a forward thinking quality leader. Mr. Cooper built on this experience to set up a pharmaceutical /medical device in combination product quality system. Since that time, he has worked with incubators, small companies, and large international corporations in the quality and regulatory affairs. In 2004, he became an independent consultant continuing his work to manage, develop, and implement quality. Mr. Cooper particularly enjoys sharing his experience with others to further develop them for successfully running quality operations.
