Webinar: Remote Audits and Inspections

Thursday, 25 June 2020 14.30 - 16.00 h

Course No. 18046


Important: Deadline is 12 noon on 24 June 2020


One important part of a supplier qualification process is the performance of an on-site audit. Currently, because of the Corona crises, the fact that an auditor has to visit a site presents a potential risk to all persons involved or might simply not be possible because of travel bans.

If an on-site audit is not possible, a risk-based supplier qualification process can be supported by a remote or virtual audit. Such an audit may be conducted through various communication channels such as video calls or other appropriate tools available. Many inspectorates, including FDA, MHRA and from EU have started to utilise remote paper based inspection approaches.

But it needs to be well-prepared from both, the auditor and the auditee.

Target Group

GMP Auditors from Pharmaceutical and API Industry and those who are involved in preparing, managing and escorting audits and inspections.
