Event Overview:

FDA 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

Join the webinar to learn what QMM is, and how far beyond GMP functions QMM will drill into.

Key Learning Objectives:

Learn about QMM’s 4 pillars:

  • Compliance management: ability to consistently meet and/or exceed compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and industry best practices
  • Risk management: ability to identify and manage organizational risks and build resilience
  • Quality culture: ability to develop and maintain an organizational mindset and behaviors that value continuous learning and improvement, and customer satisfaction
  • Sustainability: ability to successfully secure and manage appropriate technology, infrastructure, human capital, suppliers, customers, institutional knowledge, and other resources to sustain the operations.
