GMP Perspectives on Working with Contracting Laboratories Webinar by GlobalCompliancePanel

9/12/2013 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM

Overview: This presentation will cover the responsibilities of both parties, and the procedures for assuring that responsibilities are met.

When working with contract testing laboratories, clients must remember that the responsibility for compliance with the GMP or the GLP ultimately lies with the product sponsor. Even if the contract assignes the responsibility to the contract laboratory, the responsibility for assuring compliance lies with the client. Neither can the contract laboratory assume that the client has complied with their responsibilities.

Areas Covered in the Session:

GLP requirements that are assigned to a test facility and cannot be transferred back to a client.

Responsibilities of the sponsor or client.

The quality agreement and what it should contain to protect the interests of both client and contractor.

Auditing the contractor for compliance with the GLP ot GMP.

What is ISO 17425 and what is its effect on contract laboratories and their clients?

Who Will Benefit:

Employees of contract laboratories who must deal with clients.

Quality assurance personnel

Regulatory Affairs personnel.

Project managers who must select contract testing laboratories.

Auditors who must deal with contract testing laboratories.
