The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the significance of effectively managing pharmaceutical and medical device supply chains. Previously hidden or overlooked vulnerabilities in the supply chain led to production disruptions and, in some cases, product shortages. To ensure regulatory compliance and sound business practices, supplier qualification is the foundation of effective supply chain management for pharmaceuticals and devices.

Our practical training will cover the essential elements of a robust and compliant supplier qualification process for FDA-regulated industries. With an emphasis on applying risk management techniques, participants will learn how to effectively evaluate and qualify suppliers.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the criticality of Supplier Qualification from a business and regulatory perspective.
  • Analyze your firm’s Supplier Qualification System to confirm adherence to current industry standards and FDA requirements.
  • Apply principles of Risk Assessment in managing your firm’s Supplier Qualification Process.
