One of the top 10 FDA 483 and Warning Letter citations is for inadequate change control. Change control receives detailed scrutiny during FDA inspections, and FDA reviews change control documentation to determine that changes did not adversely impact products, processes, equipment, facilities, etc. A single inadequate change may lead to significant negative events, including release of sub-standard product or product recall. A pattern of inadequate changes may require costly and time-consuming system remediation efforts.
It is therefore critically important to assure that changes are properly described, justified, assessed for risk, implemented, and documented. Changes must also be prospectively reviewed by appropriate subject matter experts. Furthermore, certain major changes (e.g. manufacturing, specifications) may require regulatory filings and/or prior regulatory approval.
This seminar will help all personnel involved in proposing, assessing, and implementing changes to understand and successfully apply Change Control best practices. Key focus will be placed on change proposals, justification / risk assessment and change execution / implementation. The importance of proper planning, critical thinking skills, and co-ordination of all change activities will also be discussed. Techniques for assuring robust Change Control programs in light of COVID-19 restrictions will also be discussed.
