Internal Audit and Supplier Audits are essential for medical device companies to self-identify and mitigate risks.  The COVID-19 pandemic has made this important task even more difficult due to travel restrictions. This webinar will provide insights into how to use remote auditing techniques to minimize the risk and maximize the benefits of conducting audits remotely.  

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • How remote auditing differs from on-site auditing
  • Effective planning to maximize benefits
  • Risk Analysis techniques for remote audits
  • Balance between Supplier Audits and Acceptance activities
  • A long-term strategy for auditing using remote techniques

Why You Should Attend:

Continuous Improvement starts with awareness of issues and opportunities. And without an effective internal audit program, management lacks awareness of the issues within their quality system. Management is blind to the gaps in the quality system and the risk that poses for the company. Even worse, management is blind to the impact on product quality and risk to the customer. It is essential to continue your audit activities, both internal and supplier, during the COVID-19 pandemic. This webinar will highlight ways to maintain your audit program while travel is significantly restricted.
