Pharmaceutical Quality Systems Training
About This Course
Do more than just reduce costs. Learn how to simplify systems and add value to your company. In this intensive, highly interactive four-day course you learn the essential elements of an effective, compliant and modern pharmaceutical quality system (PQS). We show you how to implement, monitor and manage a quality system that meets the needs of all major international regulatory agencies.
As QPs and quality professionals, you cannot certify or release products and stay in business unless your PQS is under control. A vast majority of adverse inspection findings relate to the PQS. Our course helps you decide if yours is effective, fit for purpose and working well or if not, you will learn what to do.
The quality of your products depends on the quality of your people and the effectiveness of the PQS. A properly functioning PQS should be a business management system that drives continuous improvement and cost savings.
Attend this course if you want to:
- Learn how to do more with less
- Simplify your PQS to improve speed and flexibility
Pharmaceutical quality systems training is for anyone who monitors all or part of a PQS. In addition to providing invaluable oversight to senior leaders, this course meets the requirements of Annex 16 and other key EudraLex chapters and annexes.
This pharmaceutical quality systems course is Royal Society of Chemistry approved as suitable for its members’ continuing professional development.
