Compliance Specialist Clinical Affairs Quality Assurance Management Marketing & Sales



Senior management takes responsibility for Quality and GXP compliance. It is not something delegated to the Quality unit or to the Regulatory Affairs group. Developing and implementing an effective Inspection readiness plan will help ensure better results, as well as a less stressful inspection. Planning strategically ahead will reduce document turn-around time, improve presentation skills from SMEs, and increase inspector confidence in the Quality System. Successfully completing an FDA inspection is critical to cGMP operations and commercial success. Implementing and maintaining robust quality systems is one element to accomplishing this goal.
