Recently FDA has been more rigorous in their enforcement of the cGMP regulations to significantly improve control over suppliers. Joshua Sharfstein, MD, former FDA Principal Deputy Commissioner, gave a speech where he addressed the safety of the supply chain. Here’s an excerpt from his speech.
“There are criminals out there who will dilute your ingredients with dangerous additives - from melamine to diethylene glycol to lead and arsenic. There are criminals who might claim to sell you one chemical and actually provide another. Because you are ultimately responsible for the product you put on the market and its impact on consumers, every company should be responsible for where you are purchasing ingredients."
When contemplating the use of a supplier you would normally have many requirements and expectations that must be met. These include technical, regulatory, quality, responsiveness, location, readiness, and those less defined but critical. One of the tools at your disposal to verify the supplier’s acceptability is to audit its operation.
This webinar is designed to provide the participants a working knowledge of supplier audits. Dr. Amer will review the why, when, who, how, and what of conducting a supplier audit to ensure that your supplier is capable of meeting all of your expectations. This is a first step in selecting the correct supplier to meet your outsourcing needs.
