Why should you attend?

Regulatory audits are a standard part of doing business in the medical device or pharmaceutical industry. The outcome of a regulatory audit can determine if a product is approved for sale or the plant itself can continue to manufacture.

Understanding the flow of an audit and being prepared with the appropriate materials, staffing, facilities can make all the difference between a good outcome and a poor one.

The successful outcome to a regulatory audit is highly dependent on preparation for and how the audit is conducted. Careful preparation, staffing and managing an audit can mean the difference between a good outcome or a poor one. This webinar will discuss the strategy and staffing, as well as advanced preparation needed to host a successful regulatory audit.
