Background:

The coronavirus outbreak is having a huge impact on global supply chains, APIs, and drug substances and products in India and China — the largest combined pharmaceutical and medical device markets in Asia

You still need to carry on with your routine business practices and expected audits during this time of uncertainty. And you need to maintain supply when it might be limited.

This webinar will lay out the steps you’ll need to take to tackle this pressing issue. To be most effective, you’ll need to secure your supply chain, prepare suppliers for inspections, implement best practices, develop appropriate quality agreements, track and ensure supplier CAPA closures, determine supplier compliance and inspection histories, implement supplier scorecards and learn how to avoid unpleasant surprises. We will discuss best practices (GxP) and provide strategic tips to meet your business needs amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Would you like an intro or refresher on how to conduct remote audits and desktop audits

Would it be helpful to receive guidelines for PPE for (unavoidable) business travel, roundtrip travel and onsite supplier needs?

What if we review methods to prevent drug shortages?

Would you like to receive a checklist of CAPA for Suppliers to Implement?
