This presentation describes how quality systems and continual improvement fit into the overall quality strategy of a company. The role and involvement of senior management in the development, deployment and improvement of quality systems will also be discussed. The approach to quality systems deployment and the level of engagement and involvement of senior management can enable the development of a quality culture.
The 2012 PDA ICH Q10 Workshop will highlight the recent changes in regulatory compliance trends including warning letters and consent decrees, regulatory expectations for operations and executive management, and how pharmaceutical quality systems can be used to align the company across multiple sites and drive the right quality culture.
