FDA, Academia, and Industry Working Together to Improve Quality – Workshop & Series
In an effort to ensure full transparency with the medical product and dietary supplement industries, the FDA Los Angeles District Office is hosting a Regulatory Policy Lecture Series on how FDA goes about improving product, processes, and service quality through the use of quality tools. During cGMP investigations and through import inspections, FDA has noted several areas where industry could improve product quality.
Graduate students from the University of Southern California (USC) – Local Regulatory Policy Graduate Program contribute to this effort by making available to a general audience a summary of the presentations conducted during the first workshop. Those presentations discuss current challenges with regulated product quality and the use of quality tools to address those issues.
