2017 ISPE/FDA/PRQI Quality Manufacturing Conference

The 2017 ISPE/FDA/PQRI Quality Manufacturing Conference  offers a new and exciting format where participants will be able to interact directly with pharmaceutical industry and regulatory leaders in a four-series workshop rotation.  Today’s blog focuses on the details of Implementing Next Steps for Quality Metrics, one of the four core workshops  taking place at the conference.

The FDA Draft guidance on Quality Metrics was reissued considering industries comments on the first draft.  Now what? ISPE has been leading the charge to bring pharmaceutical industry and regulators together to create an open dialogue about shaping the Quality Metrics program as it is launched industry wide.  Industry has given input that the current program is heavy on burden and light on benefit.  This is your opportunity to explore and engage in dialog with your peers and FDA on the path forward … to drive greater value out of a quality metrics program for patients, industry and FDA.

Objective of the Workshop:

  • Create a vision for a quality metrics program that drives continual improvement and more effective and efficient regulatory oversight
  • Expand and change perspectives on the overall intent and goals of quality metrics for both FDA and industry
  • Consider which metrics are the most powerful in predicting and measuring the performance and health of quality systems
