This webinar will cover traceability requirements and techniques useful in the event of quality deviation investigations and potential FDA Recalls.
The session will also cover associated information like identification, classification and protocols.At the end of this webinar, the speaker will handle your specific questions related to the topic.
Why you should Attend:The documentation review authority for the FDA has increased with the passage of FSMA. Enforcement has begun to expand as well. Not only does the FDA now have the authority to mandate product recalls, the records and information they may request to see has increased as well. Allergen mislabeling microbiological and foreign material contamination are the leading causes of Class I recalls. Additional funding is expected to allow even greater sampling and inspection of products and facilities in the New Year. More and more alerts are being issued at the risk of brand confidence. It is often a slow recovery for customer sales following a product recall, not to mention the cost of communication, product return and disposal. You can make the difference between gaining and losing customers.
Developing quality systems that result in good traceability can lessen the impact of a market withdrawal or even recall. It starts with the management team and must include the operators. From lot identification throughout the supply chain, to effectively reviewed recovery exercises, your team must have comprehensive systems and be ready to quickly execute your plan in the event of an incident.
