Management Responsibility

Plenary Session 3
Neil Wilkinson, NSF-DBA LLC

ICH Q10 deliberately brings to the forefront the critical area of Management Responsibility within a Pharmaceutical Quality System (PQS). Deming recognised this 50 years ago, and it subsequently became a key part of the ISO 9000 series of Quality Management standards. ICH Q10 aims to reinforce the importance of management in establishing and maintaining a company wide quality culture along with an effective PQS that assures a state of control and drives improvement.
In these sessions we will hear how these concepts are used in practice within companies and throughout their supply chains for outsourced activities and purchased materials. We will also hear from the regulators what the current expectations are as to how management should oversee the PQS.
