Drug Digest: FDA Quality Management Maturity (QMM) Overseas Pilot Program Findings

Published on: 

DA has begun championing Quality Management Maturity (QMM), a new quality surveillance initiative intended to raise awareness at all levels of management in the pharmaceutical industry as to how to best achieve quality objectives and improve manufacturing site quality and supply chain reliability in drug manufacturing processes. QMM follows a maturity modeling paradigm. According to FDA, QMM is the state attained when drug manufacturers have consistent, reliable, and robust business processes to achieve quality objectives and promote continual improvement. FDA mentioned QMM in its 2019 report, Drug Shortages: Root Causes and Potential Solutions, which pointed to a lack of manufacturer incentives to improve their quality management beyond the minimum required for current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) compliance
