Best Practices of Quality Risk Management

Quality Risk Management (QRM) principles require the evaluation of risk to patient safety and product quality based on scientific knowledge, data and experience. The role of Quality Risk Management (QRM) is integral in supplying and maintaining quality products by evaluating manufacturing processes and understanding risks to product quality and thus patient safety. With a critical understanding of QRM, the quality of products can be built into the manufacturing processes. Regulators expect that QRM is inherently built into the backbone of the Quality Management System (QMS) by using a lifecycle approach to implement both formal and informal risk tools that support the elements defined in ICH Q9 for risk assessment, risk control, risk review, communication of identified risks, and acceptance of residual risks.

Why should you attend?

The Quality Risk Management Master Class helps participants acquire the knowledge necessary and ability to integrate the quality risk management guidelines in an organization. It provides information with regard to the risk management principles and their application, as well as the core elements of the risk management framework and steps for a risk management process. In addition, it provides the basic approaches, methods, and practices for assessing risk in a wide range of GxP situations.
