Disposition and release of materials from plants, whether they be your own facilities or those of your contract manufacturers, is a key step in the process of manufacture of product to fuel your clinical trial or your commercial sales and marketing groups. There is always continuous pressure to release materials earlier but this must be weighed against the risks of making a rash or wrong decision in the disposition process. A poor decision can result in Field Alerts or Biological Deviation Reports or even recalls. With the increased vigilance of the agencies worldwide and the tightening requirements, it is important that your processes be efficient, compliant yet efficient and flexible to meet these apparently opposing forces. Even the most robust system can always see opportunity for improvement in speed and decreased risk if the correct questions are posed and then answered effectively. Based on warning letters in 2011, many companies still run foul of the law in their processes.
This live training webinar will provide valuable information on the requirements for lot disposition as defined by the regulations in USA, Canada and the EU. This will enable you to see how successful companies can translate these requirements into workable processes that are compliant with the regulations and yet efficient from a business perspective. Elements of risk management will be discussed as they pertain to development and execution of a system for lot disposition for clinical as well as commercial products for products manufactured within your own plants as well as those manufactured in your contract manufacturer's facilities. The webinar will present some metrics that can be put into place to measure your performance versus expectations which will set you on the road to continuous improvement. With this information you will be able to benchmark against some successful companies. You will also see how companies run foul of the agencies resulting in warning letters and how from this information you will be able to assure that you do not suffer the same fate.
