Predictive Compliance will help you identify, investigate, and communicate compliance issues within your organization. This webinar will help you identify and articulate risks in a predictive manner resulting in a more efficient and effective Quality Management System.

Almost daily we hear and read about companies receiving 483s, Warning Letters, and even Consent Decrees. Often executive management is surprised by these events. These companies face not only embarrassing media coverage but also costly investigations and corrective/preventive action. Quality and Compliance problems can seriously impact customer satisfaction, sales, market share, and ultimately business results. In some cases, management can face personal civil or criminal charges for failure to address issues.

So why is management surprised when they get a 483, warning letter, or consent decree?
They didn’t get the data/information identifying quality and compliance issues.The data did not clearly articulate a need or sense of urgency for improvement.

They got the information but did not effectively prioritize, resource, and implement corrective actions.

They got the information but company culture did not create an appropriate environment to clearly identify, escalate, and mitigate quality and compliance issues.

A well designed Quality Management System and program of compliance can help companies prevent issues resulting in improved product quality, customer satisfaction, and business success.
