Why Should You Attend:

Vendor selection is a serious process. Manufacturers are responsible for compliance from their selected vendors. Any violations from the vendors can cause serious problems for the manufacturers. Choosing a foreign vendor is no different than choosing a domestic vendor. Foreign vendors are held to the same FDA standards as domestic vendors. Manufacturers have to have assurance that their foreign vendor is suitable. They have to know the vendor will not be the source for major issues as Manufacturers are responsible for any vendor oversights or problems.
