The objective of this webinar is to develop an understanding of how a compliant laboratory handles the investigation of out-of-specification (OOS) test results and how the laboratory interfaces with other units through the laboratory investigation process. The discussion will be based on the FDA guidance on handling OOS laboratory results.
This live webinar training will provide a clear process for compliant laboratory OOS investigations.
Why should you Attend: The FDA is inspecting laboratory operations very closely, with an emphasis on how the laboratory investigates Out-of-specification and out-of-tolerance observation investigations. All Laboratory and Quality Assurance management, analysts and reviewers should be aware of the FDA expectations for procedures that define a complete, scientifically sound investigation of each out-of-specification and out-of-trend laboratory observation and evidence that laboratory personnel are following the procedures. This training will build the foundation for the implementation of adequate procedures and provide a review of existing procedures and practices.
