Course Description

As scrutiny of sponsors, Contract Research Organizations (CROs), and monitors involved in the conduct of clinical research intensifies, companies are using their quality assurance resources to review internal (and vendor) systems to ensure compliance within a changing regulatory environment. A systematic application of the Compliance Program Guidance Manual (CPGM) permits identification of regulatory risks during qualification and in-process audits. This web seminar will review the FDA’s current guideline for conducting inspections and how to apply them to assess Quality Systems. Assessment of the SOPs that are expected for sponsors and CROs, including registration of trials and informed consent document issues, will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives

  • Integrate new regulatory requirements and processes into audits
  • Translate inspection criteria to Quality Systems that support changes in inspection focus
  • Assess the FDA’s application of the CPGM as reflected in regulatory communication
  • Examine steps for preparation of an inspection
