Pharmaceutical Quality System

Plenary Session 1
David Cockburn, European Medicines Agency (EMA)

Why is a strong Quality System so fundamental to achieving and maintaining operational excellence?  What can we learn from other industries? What are the cost benefits of more effective and efficient manufacturing? In the opening session, senior leaders will discuss how the industry and consumers benefit when science-based risk management is used throughout the lifecycle to assure a robust state of control.
These sessions will address the tangible quality-business synergies reaped by "learning organisations" that proactively seek out sources of variability through daily vigilance and take advantage of contemporary technological solutions to improve product quality.
