How to write clear, concise, and flexible SOPs

Description

Failure to Follow established SOPs” is the most common observation from regulatory bodies. Translated this means the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) put into place were not adequate for personnel to follow as well as record the information needed. Poorly written procedures make it difficult for your employees to understand and consistently follow procedures. Once these SOPs are put into place it is difficult to rectify the problem, putting the work and thoughtfulness up front to make sure your procedures are concise and understandable will save your business trouble when an auditor arrives for an inspection.

Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are a critical ingredient in an effective and efficient Quality Management System. Well written SOPs send a message to the FDA and Notified Bodies that your QMS is complete, accurate, and followed. More importantly, well written SOPs ensure that your personnel can consistently and accurately follow your processes resulting in well documented and justifiable results

This webinar will help you to write clear, concise, and flexible SOPs. You will learn techniques for creating easy to read and clear SOPs your employees can easily follow. Well written SOPs ensure that your employees understand and consistently follow your manufacturing processes.
