    Following FDA Guidance: Continuous Improvement In An Outsourced Environment

    In May 2013 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released its draft guidance, “Contract Manufacturing Arrangement for Drugs: Quality Agreements,” with recommendations representing its “current thinking on defining, establishing, and documenting the responsibilities of each party (or all parties) involved in the contract manufacturing of drugs subject to Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP). In particular, we describe how parties involved in the contract manufacturing of drugs can utilize Quality Agreements to delineate their responsibilities and assure drug quality, safety, and efficacy.”

  •  Best Practices For Chemical Inventory Management
    Best Practices For Chemical Inventory Management

    Companies that utilize chemicals in their labs and their manufacturing processes must manage those chemicals in a safe environment in accordance with government regulations. At a minimum, to ensure that this is accomplished, a system for managing information about the chemical safety and inventory data should be established and maintained. Best practices, on the other hand, take this minimum and leverage the management of the chemical inventory by taking full advantage of the people, processes, and technology involved. This white paper delves into the best practices involved in managing chemical inventory to achieve the most effective, holistic chemical inventory system.

  • For Regulatory Retention Compliance In Life Science Industries And Clinical Trial Research
    For Regulatory Retention Compliance In Life Science Industries And Clinical Trial Research

    “Digital born data” is found everywhere in regulated Good Practice environments for laboratory (GLP), clinical (GCP), and manufacturing (GMP) purposes, e.g., (GXP). Paper documents are also scanned into digital format (PDF) for storage and retention. This document explains the fallacy of thinking that system backup tapes suffice for electronic archive purposes. It then describes the characteristics of electronic archives and discusses the history and concepts supporting today’s practical experience with digital preservation for long term retention compliance in organizations subject to US FDA, EU EMEA, and other global authorities.
