About The Event


This course will present the regulations and guidelines that apply to operations in quality control testing laboratories. In some cases these will not be specific regulations, but needs that, if met, will increase the efficiency or quality of activities in the laboratory. While it will not be possible to cover all of the subtle variations among regulatory regions, general internationally accepted practices that comply with GMP requirements will be covered.

Why should you attend?

Since quality control is recognized as a manufacturing function, any pharmaceutical worker who deals with the manufacture of products should attend this course in order to gain an understanding of the regulatory requirements that apply to the testing and interpretation of test results as they relate to the monitoring and release of pharmaceutical products. In particular workers in and supervisors of pharmaceutical quality control laboratories will find this course to be of interest. In addition, workers in regulatory affairs and quality assurance will benefit as they will need to understand general GMP requirements when assessing the quality of product lots and presenting test results and process monitoring data to regulatory agencies.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • FDA's legal authority and limitations
  • FDA labeling requirements and exemptions
  • FDA guidance documents, such as for social media, direct -to-consumer advertising, message formatting and providing risk/benefit information
  • Motivational factors in decision making
  • FDA-wide Warning Letters
  • Enforcement
  • Mock marketing strategy exercise

Who will benefit:

  • Directors
  • Managers
  • Supervisors, and lead workers in Manufacturing, Quality Control, Regulatory Affairs, and Quality Assurance
  • Workers who will be participating in operations or the supervision of Quality Control testing or the interpretation of test results.
