Webinar Includes : All the training handouts , certificate ,Q/A and 60 mins Live Webinar


What to do and what not to do when it comes to testing and retesting FDA regulated products in the medical device, pharmaceutical and food industries is what this webinar is about. When an out of specification (OOS) test result is obtained during product release or during product validation testing, the scientists dealing with retesting need to understand the FDA rules and expectations about repeating their testing. This is prescribed in the FDA guidance document, which will be clearly explained in this webinar. Auditors and Auditees in regulated industries will walk out of this webinar with a thorough knowledge on what is allowed and what is not allowed and areas that need to be looked at for a thorough investigation of all sorts of OOS test results in today’s highly regulated industries.
