Auditing and Qualifying Suppliers and Vendors

Regulatory agencies hold companies accountable for delivering high quality products that meet all established requirements and specifications. Suppliers and vendors play a key role in accomplishing these mandates and it is the company’s responsibility to ensure their suppliers/vendors meet all regulatory specifications for the supplied materials, components, equipment and/or services. 

For many years, industry has implemented procedures for selection, approval and qualification of suppliers and vendors. However, in many cases these protocols were not being implemented effectively or formally documented. Making these programs part of a risk-based quality system approach that the FDA and other regulatory agencies have come to expect from industry is critical. The course includes a process for selection, audit, approval and qualification of vendors/suppliers based on the material/equipment/service being delivered. These decisions must be documented and must be based on the impact (risk) to the final product. 

Initially, the course will discuss the regulatory expectations and other industrial references/ standards that will impact your system and will include the general requirements of a vendor/supplier (outsourcing) control program followed by specific requirements for different types of supplied materials/equipment/services. During these sections, attendees will establish the documentation requirements, applicable audits and the impact of the quality agreement/contract details. 

In conclusion, participants will learn the maintenance aspects of such a program including handling of non-conformances, and timing and nature of additional audits. During the course, several interactive exercises will be included to provide opportunities for discussion and sharing of experiences.

This course has been pre-approved by the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) as eligible for 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.
