ComplianceOnline

The globalization of the pharmaceutical supply chain has led increased us of Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs). The use of CMOs provides many benefits; however, it can present unique compliance risks, particularly since the operations are not in your facility and therefore not under your direct control. The compliance risks are highlighted by FDA Warning Letter trends, the majority of which are related to serious compliance and data integrity issues at foreign CMO sites.

If you use CMOs, your company has the ultimate responsibility for product quality, safety, efficacy, and cGMP compliance. Furthermore, FDA has clearly stated that organizations using CMOs will be held accountable for CMO compliance to cGMPs, as well as adherence to regulatory commitments. Therefore, issues identified at your CMO may result in FDA 483s and/or Warning Letters issued to your company. Since FDA is holding firms using CMOs responsible, it is imperative that your organization have a robust CMO management system. At the end of the day, your organization’s ability to provide proper quality oversight of CMOs is the key to assuring product safety and your company’s compliance profile.

This seminar will help all personnel responsible for CMO oversight understand how to manage CMOs- from start to finish. In-depth focus will be placed on Selection and Qualification, Quality Agreements, Understanding of CMO Operations, and Review of Key CMO Records. Considerations for different types of manufacturing will be highlighted, and techniques for managing difficult CMO situations will be discussed. This is a practical how-to course, designed to provide participants with skills they can immediately apply to CMO oversight within their own organizations. Group exercises will allow participants to practice skill sets with feedback from the instructor.

    Local Attractions of Philadelphia, PA

    Philadelphia Museum of Art

    Philadelphia Museum of Art

    The Philadelphia Museum of Art sits majestically on a rise at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The vast collections of this temple of art make it the third-largest art museum in the country, and an absolute must-see on the city's cultural circuit.
    Among its impressive holdings in Renaissance, American, Impressionist and Modern art, some standouts include a great Rogier van der Weyden altarpiece, a large Bathers by Cezanne, a room devoted to Philadelphia's own Thomas Eakins, and Marcel Duchamp's notorious mixed-media Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors (The Large Glass), exactly as the dada master installed it.

    Valley Forge National Historical Park

    Valley Forge National Historical Park

    With more than 3,600 acres of rolling hills and well-worn trails, Valley Forge is now a magnet for runners, bicyclists and picnickers as well as history buffs.
    The vast expanse of open space links the Schuylkill River Trail to the Horse Shoe Trail, turning the park into a major hub in a 75-mile system linking Philadelphia to the Appalachian Trail.

    The Liberty Bell Center

    The Liberty Bell Center

    The Liberty Bell has a new home, and it is as powerful and dramatic as the Bell itself. Throughout the expansive, light-filled Center, larger-than-life historic documents and graphic images explore the facts and the myths surrounding the Bell.

    National Constitution Center

    National Constitution Center

    The 160,000-square-foot National Constitution Center explores and explains this amazing document through high-tech exhibits, artifacts, and interactive displays. The Kimmel Theater, a 350-seat star-shaped theater, features “Freedom Rising,” a multimedia production combining film, a live actor and video projection on a 360° screen to tell the stirring story of “We the people.”

    The Franklin Institute

    The Franklin Institute

    An innovator in designing hands-on exhibits before “interactive” became a buzzword, The Franklin Institute is as clever as its namesake. Its eminently touchable attractions explore science in disciplines ranging from sports to space.
    Highlights include The Sports Challenge, which uses virtual-reality technology to illustrate the physics of sports; The Train Factory's climb-aboard steam engine; Space Command's simulated earth-orbit research station; a fully equipped weather station; and exhibits on electricity.

    The Barnes Foundation

    The Barnes Foundation

    The Barnes Foundation was created in 1922, a school originating with Barnes’ educational experimentation in his Argyrol (pharmaceutical) factory. Barnes and The Foundation’s first director of education, John Dewey, were interested in fostering cognitive development through new approaches to education, and in heightening critical-thinking and problem-solving skills through the study of art. Barnes, like Dewey, was actively engaged in development of an intellectual framework and educational philosophies and practices with many of the best artists and thinkers of his day.

    The Rocky Statue

    The Rocky Statue

    One of Philadelphia’s most famous pieces of public art is a bigger-than-life boxer… literally. Originally created for Rocky III, the sculpture is now a real-life monument to a celluloid hero. The fictional Rocky Balboa of Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky movies was immortalized in bronze in 1980. After filming for the movie completed, Stallone donated the statue to the City of Philadelphia.

    Franklin Square

    Franklin Square

    Franklin Square, one of Philadelphia’s five original public squares laid out by William Penn in his original plan for the city, has undergone a dramatic renovation. The park now boasts several family-friendly attractions, including a miniature golf course, classic carousel, burger joint, storytelling bench, picnic area and more.
