Taking a QbD Approach to Build a Risk Based Strategy for the Development & Validation of Validation of Analytical Methods

Building a goal oriented pathway into which proper design precedes development activities for various Analytical and Test Methods as a means for building Quality into the method right from the start is extremely crucial. This is emphasized by The American Chemical Society (ACS), and is the nucleus of pharmaceutical Quality by Design (QbD).

So, how does one understanding QbD? QbD is a systematic approach towards development that is built on a set of predefined objectives. It informs a proper and thorough understanding of product and process, and process control, all of which are built on the edifice of sound science and quality risk management. QbD has been acquiring a position of preeminence in enhancing the quality, safety and effectiveness of the drugs being supplied to the patient. Its potential in bringing about substantial improvements into the quality performance of the manufacturing process is also gaining ground. Read more

Taking a QbD Approach to Build a Risk Based Strategy

The indispensability of Validation as a tool in demonstrating that the desired method is appropriate and sufficient for the purpose it is meant to serve is emphasized by the ACS. In order to achieve this, the organization has to build a risk based strategy for developing and applying these methods for their intended purpose during the entire lifecycle of these methods.

What Should You Expect from Drafting and the Use of Drug Master Files & Quality Agreements?

Outsourcing is a common practice in the pharma and biological industries. Manufacturers of pharmaceutical and biological products outsource many of their manufacturing processes to contractors/suppliers. This arrangement bestows many benefits for both sides. However, lack of clarity about the terms of the contract can become a cause for contention when there is a disagreement or dispute between the parties. In fact, lack of clarity can be a primary cause for disputes and disagreements.

The root of these problems lies in the inability of the concerned parties to thoroughly and properly delineate roles and responsibilities and set up proper mechanisms for the resolution of these issues when signing agreements. One of the crucial areas of the agreement pertains to the development, support and updating of confidential Technical Files (Drug Master files). Drug Master Files are documents which allow suppliers to protect their confidential product and process information from each and every customer, which they share with only the regulatory agencies.

Full understanding of Quality Agreements and DMFs 

So, a clear understanding of what the regulatory agencies around the world look for in the DMFs is imperative for suppliers to ensure that their agreements with contractors/suppliers are drafted and implemented without any misunderstanding. Quality Agreements and Drug Master Files, which are at the core of these arrangements, need to be drafted thoroughly. To do this, a complete understanding of the rationale behind the Quality Agreement and the Drug Master Files is a must. This is exactly what a seminar from GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance, will offer.

Technical Writing for the Pharma, Device and Biotech Industries 3

This two-day, in person seminar will have Robert J. Russell, President/CEO of RJR Consulting, Inc., as Director. RJR Consulting specializes in helping clients navigate through global regulatory compliance requirements for pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biologics, combination products and dietary supplement/OTC products. Bob has specific expertise helping companies expand into new regions globally and meet establishment and licensing requirements, clinical trial data expectations, marketing authorization/registration preparation, and meet variations/amendment filing responsibilities and license renewal filings.

Aimed at professionals involved in the areas relating to pharmaceutical, biologic and medical device products, components, and packaging materials, such as manufacturing, Regulatory Affairs, project management, global supply chain, research and development, Quality Assurance and control, validation, and development, preparation of submission materials and General Management; this course will describe the current review and enforcement environment within FDA, as well as the manner in which Drug Master Files (DMFs) are reviewed by the agency.

All about Microbial Control, Monitoring, Validation and Troubleshooting of Pharmaceutical Water Systems

Bob will also familiarize participants with the use of DMFs in the EU, Japan, Canada and Australia, during which he will highlight both the similarities and differences these countries’ regulatory requirements have to the U.S. system.

The important learning objective this course will impart is a grasp of how to prepare Quality Agreements and Drug Master Files (DMFs) with the FDA, with an understanding of the rationale behind doing so. Practical knowledge of what reviewers look for in DMFs, the consequences that can be expected as a result of non-compliance, and the strategies for avoiding the most common DMF-related errors are the other important learning outcomes of this course.

Bob will also explain how DMFs are organic by their nature, and will present strategies for establishing and maintaining effective change control programs. He will also show how to facilitate effective communications with regulatory agencies along with customers and vendors.

Of late, the FDA has been transitioning from a paper filing system to electronic submissions for initial DMF submissions, annual updates and DMF amendments. Bob will discuss this development as well.

How Covered Entities and Business Associates Can Comply Calmly, Confidently and Completely with the HIPAA Rules

HIpaa Blog wpress

Any business organization that is involved in creating, receiving, transmitting and maintaining Protected Health Information (PHI) has to comply with the requirements set out in Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Such businesses, called Business Associates, since they carry out these functions on behalf of what are called Covered Entities; are legally obliged to show compliance with the provisions of HIPAA, whose main aim is to protect the privacy and confidentiality of patient information.

So, any Business Associate has to know how to comply with the provisions of HIPAA. Considering that the provisions of HIPAA have undergone major changes from the time of its enactment in 1996 up until 2013; Business Associates often find that showing compliance with the provisions of this legislation is complex. But failing to do so attracts hefty fines and penalties.

Understanding HIPAA provisions is the key to implementation

Although HIPAA implementation appears somewhat intimidating at first glance, in reality, it is not so. It can be implemented with ease and felicity in a manner that meets all the regulatory requirements. How? By breaking down the requirements into separate parts. The ways of taking this very sensible and commonsensical approach to HIPAA implementation by Business Associates and their Covered Entities, will be the subject of a very useful two-day seminar that is being organized by GlobalCompliancePanel, a highly reputed provider of professional trainings in the areas of regulatory compliance.

Overcoming HIPAA Compliance Challenges 

HIPAA Compliance

Taking the right steps to HIPAA implementation

He will, for instance, highlight the role of the social media and how to use the electronic media for staying updated and thus reducing the crucial element of time. He will also highlight the importance of managing risks in HIPAA compliance. This is all the more critical, considering that the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) has found that a shockingly high 94% of Covered Entities failed the Risk Management audit and about 87% failed the Risk Analysis audit. This was despite the fact that every Covered Entity knew well in advance of the upcoming audit, and had filled up a pre-audit questionnaire, which gave them a clear idea of what was to come in terms of the questions that HIPAA inspectors would be asking them, and what documentation were needed from them.

The central aim of this learning session is to help participants understand how Business Associates and Covered Entities can take simple and easy steps to stay compliant, so that they don’t have problems in meeting HIPAA requirements for compliance.

Learning at this highly valuable Areas:

  • Thorough Understanding of HIPAA Rules
  • What they are
  • How they work together
  • Why and How they were made
  • How they are changing and what to expect next
  • HIPAA Risk Analysis – Risk Management for Your Organization
  • A Practical Guided Exercise done in class on your computer to take home
  • Privacy and Security Rules – Permitted and Required Uses and Disclosures
  • What information must be protected
  • Administrative, Technical and Physical Safeguards
  • Social Media, Texting and Emailing Patients
  • The inter-connected, inter-dependent relationship of Covered Entities and Business Associates
  • What is, and what is not a Reportable Breach of Unsecured PHI

GlobalCompliancePanel Seminar “Applied Statistics for FDA Process Validation” successfully done in Philadelphia, PA at May 17th & 18th, 2018.

GlobalCompliancePanel have been successfully organized the 2 days seminar in Philadelphia, PA from May 17th & 18th, 2018 by NetZealous LLC.

IMG_5439

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provided a guidance for industry in 2011 that has established a framework for process validation in the pharmaceutical industry. This guidance, titled “Process Validation: General Principles and Practices” consists of a three-stage process. The three stages are 1) Process Design, 2) Process Qualification, and 3) Continued Process Verification.

This Seminar focuses on how to establish a systematic approach to implementing statistical methodologies into a process development and validation program consistent with the FDA guidance. This course teaches the application of statistics for setting specifications, assessing measurement systems (assays), using design of experiments (DOE), developing a control plan as part of a risk management strategy, and ensuring process control/capability. All concepts are taught within the three-stage product cycle framework defined by requirements in the process validation regulatory guidance documents.

The seminars organized In Guidance for Industry Process Validation: General Principle and Practices and On the First day of the seminars which was 17th of May 2018, GlobalCompliancePanel had covered Introduction to Statistics for Process Validation, Primer on Statistical Analysis (cont.) with Mr. Heath Rushing is cofounder of Adsurgo and author of the book Design and Analysis of Experiments by Douglas Montgomery.

Clinical Data Management: an Understanding

The data generated by clinical trials serves as a critical raw material for clinical studies and the subsequent development of drugs or other medical products. This input, called clinical data, is very valuable in helping pharmaceutical, life sciences and medical device companies innovate and produce new products.

Clinical Data Management1

This data is invaluable for companies that are involved in the development of new products. This data is the crucial ingredient that helps in formulating new therapies and treatments and help take these into the market. So, organizing and managing these data to help companies put these data to their intended use is a major responsibility for companies that are in the process of developing new products.

Clinical Data Management (CDM) is the science of documentation, preservation and management of data that clinical trials throw up. CDM covers the entire range of activities from collection of data to its analysis. CDM has come a long way from being a drab and clerical function in the 1970’s and 80’s to something that companies actively look forward to and invest considerably into.

Clinical Data Management4

The main impetus for this evolution can be attributed to automation. Today, CDM is a full-fledged discipline that generates many jobs and careers, and is being actively regulated by the regulatory agencies.

Comprehensive learning about CDM

  • Data Management Plan, or DMP
  • Study startup activities
  • Study conduct activities
  • Study closeout
  • Study monitoring.

Learning outcomes

This seminar on Clinical Data Management will help participants gain complete knowledge of the crucial aspects of CDM. Following the learning gained over these two days, they will be able to define best practices as they apply to CDM processes, describe CDM processes from study start-up to database lock, apply best practice rationale when assessing data collection requirements/instruments, evaluate the benefits of standardization in establishing CDM processes, and discuss current technology/methods of data collection and associated documentation.

Do You Know How to Identify Root Cause and How to Close Out Your Investigation?

Getting the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) right is at the soul of the implementation of an effective Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) program.

Root Cause Analysis3

Getting the Root Cause Analysis (RCA) right is at the soul of the implementation of an effective Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) program. Root Cause Analysis and CAPA are tied to each other intricately. This being the case, it is commonsensical to perform the two functions in tandem with each other applying the principles of risk management. This method makes business sense, as it saves time and cost. This requires companies that want to do an RCA in conjunction with CAPA to have complete knowledge of the principles of CAPA.

Root Cause Analysis2

The lack of effectiveness of a company’s RCA is reflected in the inability of the CAPA to fulfill its purpose. An effective Quality Management System is unthinkable without CAPA. In the FDA’s thinking, a Quality System can go awry if effective CAPA is not in place.

So, a CAPA action plan rests on a sound Root Cause Analysis. Any organization that fails to implement this can expect recurring problems and issues. Some of them could turn out to be serious enough to derail their business.
