If your virtual company is involved in drug, biologics, and medical device development or manufacturing, it is crucial to ensure you are compliant with regulatory requirements for managing quality. With so many companies outsourcing critical jobs to third-parties, it's vital to understand how to handle the numerous contract service providers to ensure compliance effectively.

MWA Consulting will help you understand the responsibilities involved in contract service provider management and oversight. It also provides insight into the most significant risks for a virtual company with recommendations on successful management of contract service providers. The presenter is a seasoned QA and compliance professional who will share her insights on this critical topic.

During this dinner meeting, our speaker will share her knowledge about the current challenges managing in a virtual company, including:

  • Management's Responsibility
  • Importance of Management Commitment
  • Criticality of a Quality Culture
  • Management of Outsourced Activities and Purchased Materials
  • Risks and Challenges facing Virtual Companies
