Quality vs. Compliance: Moving Beyond Standards

Many regulated businesses chase a baseline of compliance, setting standard accreditation and audit-passing as the primary objective of their quality teams.

But this approach doesn’t set businesses up for long-term success, or allow them to beat their competitors. As industry bodies from the FDA to the ISPE pivot from a compliance to a quality focus with their new initiatives, businesses need to consider how to treat standard compliance not as an end point, but as a springboard for continuous quality improvement.

This webinar breaks down why quality is the new compliance - and what your business needs to do to harness quality as a long-term competitive weapon.

Learning objectives: 

  • Explore how the latest industry guidance, from the Case for Quality to GAMP 5 Version 2, prioritizes quality over compliance - and why
  • Understand why just complying with industry standards holds your business back
  • Learn how to unlock the full potential of your organization and use compliance as a launchpad for an industry-leading quality-centric approach
