About The Event


Writing SOPs or procedural documents can be challenging at times. However, writing SOPs is overall a straightforward process. However, enforcing what you already created and implemented in the pipeline is another story. The term SOP is very obvious. We have seen "clearly written description of how specific tasks are to be done." Another satisfactory definition would be "detailed written instructions that achieve the uniformity of the performance of a specific function." Is the firm doing what the regulations specify? Is the firm doing what their procedures specify? If you are medical device or a pharmaceutical manufacturer, these definitions come as no surprise because when it comes to FDA regulations and guidance documents "establish" means to define, to document (in writing or electronically) and to implement. The goal and emphasis with FDA is simple. Proof of "Establish" is the foundation. Is the firm doing what the regulations specify? Is the firm doing what their procedures specify? Are the procedures being followed and enforced by company personnel? SOPs are needed in regulated industries to give step-by-step instructions for performing a particular job or task. This session will provide a step-by-step overview and a snapshot of the procedure description, the process and format. The subject matter of a SOP may range from how to operate a piece of machinery to how to log into a particular software program. SOPs ensure consistency and reliability because they require training of all affected parties. 

Standard operating procedures work best when they are designed to achieve specific results. Decide what business goals will be achieved through better management with SOPs and how those goals will be measured. The lack of or inadequate standard operating procedures (SOPs) continues to dominate the FDA's inspectional observations. Following SOPs are much more important than writing them. Even the best written SOPs are useless if they are not followed. SOPs are therefore the most popular documents audited by FDA and other Agencies, and certainly your auditors and customers. This session will provide insightful and useful information by presenting topics associated with the writing, formatting, execution, management and global harmonization of SOPs. It also discusses good documentation practices required by companies to ensure GMP compliance and relates the role which SOPs play in achieving the required level of compliance and quality.
