This webinar will instruct the participant on how to write, organize, and maintain SOPs and train personnel in a way that will ensure compliance in a way that is concise, reproducible and easy to follow.
It will begin with a strategic view of SOPs in a company and how SOPs can help streamline operations in addition to ensuring regulatory compliance. This will be followed by explanation on how to get from regulations to the SOP. Finally, Best Practices for creating, implementing and maintaining SOPs using a risk based approach and getting SOPs ready for inspection will be presented.
Why you should attend: Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are required by law for companies that are regulated by the Code of Federal Regulations such as Title 21 and Title 493. Yet there is no guidance on how to write, organize and maintain SOPs. Consequently, SOPs are frequently written in a way that makes compliance difficult or downright impossible. Worse, this often leads to many regulatory errors that first come to light during an FDA audit.
This webinar will show you how to write, organize, and maintain SOPs and train personnel in a way that will ensure compliance in a way that is concise, reproducible and easy to follow.
