Many biotech companies and some pharma companies today are small, “virtual” organizations that outsource most GxP-governed activities such as clinical trials, manufacturing, packaging, laboratory testing, and drug safety monitoring. Such companies often lack in-house knowledge of GCP, GLP and GMP requirements, or have such knowledge vested in very few people. The prospect of an FDA inspection can be a daunting one, as can ensuring that your vendors will pass FDA scrutiny.

This live eLearning training course will help you understand what you need to have in place, what the high-risk areas are, and how best to manage those risks as you grow and bring activities in-house. This training course explains the GMP, GCP and GLP responsibilities of virtual companies or others who predominately outsource GxP-governed activities.
