Production and Process Controls (P&PC) are one of the key capabilities necessary for medical device companies to consistently and effectively produce products. Because Production and Process Controls are so critical they are one of the major subsystems emphasized in inspections by the FDA.
Failure to adequately implement Production and Process Controls (P&PC) can lead to disaster for your company… or even worse… for your customer. And P&PC continues to be a leading cause of 483 and warning letter observations from the FDA.
Even more alarming, P&PC failures are a leading cause for complaints, malfunctions, and product recalls. This webinar can help you prevent serious issues such as these. You’ll learn about FDA quality system regulation expectations, and how you can successfully and efficiently establish these into your Quality Management System.
