International GMP regulators like the FDA and TGA continue to find GMP deficiencies in organisations relating to Out Of Specification (OOS) events. The citations range across:

  • Inadequate management (no SOP or not following the SOP)
  • Inadequate investigation (lack of depth or lack of documentation)
  • Inadequate outcomes (testing into compliance without (justifiably) invalidating the OOS)

As such, regulatory GMP inspectors are looking into how companies handle out of specification results and this course is designed to help you understand the current best practice for OOS investigations.

Participants

You will benefit from this training if you are a regulated laboratory analyst or supervisor/manager, or if you have an interest in GxP and laboratory practices.

Format and Course Length

The course will be delivered as an online virtual-classroom training session.

Participants will be provided with a PDF of the training material in advance of the training should they wish to print and annotate notes. Participants will be connected to the trainer and other participants via online collaboration tool Zoom with connected video (webcam / screen sharing) and audio (computer audio or phone dial-in). Theory will be delivered by the trainer sharing their screen of the PowerPoint presentation. Facilitated workshops will be run in digital breakout rooms (e.g. a group of 12 might split into 4 breakout rooms each with 3 participants to separately work on a problem). Breakout rooms can call the trainer in for support when required and the trainer can electronically bring everyone back to the main session to debrief when appropriate.

The training will be delivered as 2 x 3.5 hour sessions over 2 days. Breaks are included.

PDF Certificates will be provided to participants electronically.
