The changing nature of the business strategies of pharmaceutical companies necessitates intra- and intercompany product transfers. This can happen at any stage in the product life-cycle. A transfer project has to make sure, that the receiving site manufactures product with the same quality as the donor site. But this is only one aspect of the interdisciplinary requirements of a product transfer. For an approval of the receiving site, the regulatory strategy has to be defined and the required documents have to be submitted. Maybe new equipment has to be set up and qualified. The transfer of the analytical methods, stability studies, raw materials & packaging components and logistics have to be considered as well.
This means that a transfer cannot be handled by a single-person and a cross-functional transfer teams has be installed as a first step in a transfer project. As interests and expertise are quite different within the team it is further essential to understand the project in its entirety and the tasks and deliveries of the single sub-teams. This is especially true for the transfer project leader.

Target Group

This course addresses to staff from Production, Quality Assurance, Regulatory Affairs and Project Management in charge of site changes. This involves project team members, from receiving sites as well as from
donor sites.
