When developing the quality audit, there are a number of requirements and expectations that must be met. These include technical, regulatory, quality, responsiveness, location, readiness, and those less defined but critical. This webinar is designed to provide the participants a working knowledge of quality audits. The why, when, who, how, and what of conducting a quality audit will be reviewed to ensure that your organization is capable of meeting all of the regulatory expectations.

Why You Should Attend:

Many organizations conduct quality audits because they are required to do so by their company or a regulatory agency. Others conduct the audits because they have been a good check for compliance to the regulatory standards.

While all of these reasons have varying degrees of validity, none of them articulate the best reason for having a robust quality audit program. A good quality audit program should allow an organization to assess and periodically re-affirm the ability of its departments to provide conforming product consistently, reliably and compliantly. It should be one of the most important initiatives toward fulfilling the goal of having a sustainable quality culture.
