How to Adapt Your QMS to Address Significant Changes and Risks

In this webinar, industry insider and QMS expert, Charley Maxwell explains how the QMS is a living, breathing system that needs regular health checks.

As regulations and business operations adapt, so too must the QMS. It is never as simple as just slotting in some quick fixes that mimic the wording in the revised regulations or doing the bare minimum to meet the needs of the new operation.

Instead, he explains the advantages and introduces tools for a thorough gap analysis each time there is a significant change to review the QMS against the new regulation or commercial process. It ensures that the benefits and risks of every operation and process explained in the revised QMS are weighed and adequately assessed. It also allows the company to tabulate all the gaps, get a holistic overview of the resource needs, and make informed choices with the senior management teams.
