Join PDA Metro Chapter and Nataly Grozovsky, Quality Lead, Johnson & Johnson, for an evening dinner discussion on Auditing Suppliers - Lesson Learned. We plan on taking a deep dive into regulatory requirements for supplier audits and sharing lessons learned and best practices in managing supplier audits.
As you know, one of the fastest-growing trends in the healthcare industry is the use of Suppliers/ Contract manufacturers for the production of materials, parts, finished products or even services. When a brand owning company solicits the manufacturing of products and services from a third-party vendor, it is essential to have effective quality oversight of the contract manufacturer to ensure receipt of compliant product. The management of these manufacturers and suppliers entails more than just routine monitoring and auditing.
This session will explore the aspects associated with successfully managing a contract manufacturer through various auditing tools, as well as how to build quality into the entire lifecycle of supplier management. This includes participation in the initial selection and qualification of a robust supplier, the articulation of quality expectations through the implementation of quality agreements, and the day-to-day management of the contract manufacturer relationship. These processes will ensure products, materials, and or services are provided in compliance with regulations and the brand owning company’s requirements.
