Audits and inspections are always a stressful time for pharmaceutical companies. Join us to learn how to stay up to date on regulations and ensure audit readiness.

About this webinar

Compliance audits and inspections are always a stressful time for pharmaceutical companies. The situation is even harder to handle when regulations continually change. For companies selling in worldwide markets, keeping track of the requirements from multiple regulatory bodies and ensuring compliance exacerbates the challenge. Being inspection and audit ready at a moment’s notice is nearly impossible unless pharma companies are willing to digitise their quality systems.

Being inspection ready and staying apprised of new or changing regulations is even more important in light of COVID-19. The pandemic changed the nature of how regulators interact with pharma companies. Now it’s expected that businesses can share their documents electronically. Electronic systems make it easier to send documents, but also make it easier to track and update them when regulations change.

During this webinar, MasterControl Product Management Director Patricia Santos-Serrao shares how pharma companies can keep up with changes while remaining audit ready.

  • The benefits of using digital systems for change management.
  • Ways that pharma companies can pass audits in a post-COVID world.
