Quality Agreements in the Pharmaceutical Industry

It is a GMP requirement that written agreements exist between all parties in the pharmaceutical supply chain for outsourced activities. The purpose of these agreements is to clearly define the responsibilities and expectations of each party to ensure the supply of safe medicines to the consumer and set up an efficient recall process in the event something goes wrong. The quality agreement provides the basis for knowledge transfer and communication between parties throughout the supply chain.

This webinar provides an overview of regulatory guidelines for Quality Agreements in the pharmaceutical industry. It also discusses formats and content for agreements between various outsourced activities.and includes common mistakes with agreements and a practical component to help you customise your own agreements based on your company outsourced activities

Time is given to allow questions and answers throughout the webinar to help attendees personalize their agreements based on their companies needs.

The material is based on FDA, European and Health Canada guidance’s for Outsourced activities.

  • Pauline is keen and hardworking, she loves her sciences and passionate about what she does. I so much enjoyed working with her, she has provided great insight on many technical and scientific issues related to analytical method development and analytical method validation. Her most important quality is her patience and perseverance and of course, fun to work with
  • Contracted Pauline to assess analytical methods validation, and to subsequently create a 'gap' report - and then to work at 'fixing' the gap. Pauline was excellent in her attention to detail, and her thorough knowledge of what was needed. She also worked on several projects after that one - always with the same high standards and commitment to provide value to the client. I heartily endorse her work.
  • Pauline is an excellent professional in the life science business. She did a great job as project manager in analytical development and validation at SGS Life Science Services. She was appreciated by her colleagues and her customers.
  • Pauline's ability to understand and integrate the scientific challenges of industry, with government and academia are unsurpassed. I am so confident with her ability to deliver meaningful yet pragmatic leadership as it applies to the pharmaceutical industry that I have recommended her to numerous prominent companies who have subsequently hired her and been extremely happy with the results she is able to deliver.
