Establishing Quality Tolerance Limits

Upcoming Courses

Course Description

ICH GCP E6 R2 Section 5.0 has given the clinical research industry the guidance to incorporate and customize all facets of risk management in clinical trials. Section 5.0.4, Risk Control, asks that predefined quality tolerance limits (QTLs) be established considering the medical and statistical variables that can impact subject safety or the reliability of trial results through the identification of systematic issues. Once detected, those issues can be evaluated and acted upon. In this web seminar, participants will learn the methodology for establishing, evaluating, and maintaining appropriate QTLs as they relate to clinical research trials, as well as the role of QTLs in Quality by Design (ICH E8 R1) and Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI).

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the background of QTLs: Purpose and relationship to Critical to Quality (CTQ) factors; role of QTLs in industry
  • Developing QTLs: Examine the protocol to identify critical processes that impact subject protection and data integrity; document the process, evaluate requirements, and implement QTLs
  • Monitoring QTLs: Track and assess data, respond when QTLs are exceeded, document to justify QTL changes
  • Study, report, and act on QTL breaches: Perform root cause analysis, documentation in the Clinical Study Report (CSR); examine how other companies use QTLs
  • Integrating QTLs into the Quality Management System (QMS)

Who Should Attend

  • Managers/Directors: Clinical Operations, Quality Management, Compliance
  • Clinical Quality Assurance Professionals
