The topic of inadequate or missing Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) continues to dominate the FDA's inspectional observations. They are found as one of top findings in warning letters and 483s, often lagging only behind the Quality Unit concerns. Having effective and compliant SOPs is not only a regulatory requirement but also makes good business sense. Effective SOPs provide a historical record for operational processes. Poor SOPs pose a great compliance risk. Also, SOPs are often used as training tools and as such, they need to be easily understood by all those whom they affect. Often employees fail to follow SOPs because they can't understand them. Too many times we have seen procedures that are being constantly revised. This then, results in lengthy and expensive investigations and costly revisions. Moreover, this leads regulators to believe that the organization does not operate in a state of control.

Course Objective:

By attending this webinar, you will gain a better understanding the regulatory expectations for, and the proper design and maintenance of Standard Operating Procedures.
