Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORONTO - Jul 03, 2018 - In this first of four live webinars, Phil Johnson, Senior Director of Quality and Compliance Services at IQVIA, will look at the business and regulatory drivers that set the requirements for supplier quality management, and identify industry best practices for managing the pharmaceutical and medical device supply chains. He will also present examples of incorrect approaches to supplier quality management. IQVIA has consulted for many years with manufacturers worldwide to assess their supplier needs, and has also worked with suppliers as they develop business and contracts to provide manufacturers with their products and services.
The business drivers for using contract suppliers are many, but it is critical to identify the positives and negatives and to properly assess the associated risks of contracting with 3rd party suppliers. This webinar will examine different scenarios in which manufacturers rely on suppliers, as well as offer recommendations on proven processes by which manufacturers can effectively engage with suppliers.
This presentation will underscore the critical need within an organization for all the relevant departments to work together as an efficient team when managing supplier quality. Quite often, the process can be doomed to fail due to conflicting interests and lack of coordination between all the required departments. The webinar will include real-world examples of how conflicting business needs at a manufacturer resulted in product recalls due to defective incoming supplier product.
Statistics indicate that the majority of pharmaceutical and medical device recalls are due to defects at the supplier. In this webinar, the speaker will take a high-level look at how ever-changing requirements are putting more pressure on manufacturers to ensure adequate supplier/purchasing controls are in place, as well as the resulting importance of identifying regulatory needs as part of the supplier assessment and qualification of processes.
Join this interactive and informative presentation on Wednesday, July 18, 2018, at 10 a.m. EDT (3 p.m. BST/UK).
