Supplier Management in Regulated Industry - NEW ISO13485:2016 UPDATE INCLUDED

Wednesday September 27, 2017 | Toronto, Canada

Supplier qualification and assessment is required in both the QSR regulations and ISO standards. Many companies spend a great deal of time and money in pursuit of compliance. Many companies can spend significantly less time and money, and still be in control of their suppliers and in compliance with the regulations. This one-day class will review the QSR and ISO requirements for supplier evaluation and assessment, and provide cost efficient, equally compliant options to many of the most common practices. Also prominently covered will be supplier nonconformances: issuance, followup, and acceptance.
