MCC Special QM Webinar, “How Regulators are Supporting the Quality Management and Risk Based Procedures in ICH GCP E6 (R2)” featuring guest speaker Ann Meeker-O’Connell, Former FDA Director of the Division of GCP Compliance.

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

The International Conference on Harmonisation’s R2 addendum to the ICH E6 Guideline for Good Clinical Practice (GCP) provides direction on a new approach to clinical monitoring and trial management that requires the use of centralized, quality risk management (QRM) throughout a clinical trial. Sponsors and CROs that are adapting to the changes are approaching this in a variety of ways. That leads to the question, what will regulators expect from organizations as they integrate the new guidelines into their SOPs?
The presentation on January 11th , open to all MCC members, focused on the processes and behaviors that the FDA and other regulators are promoting through the quality management and risk-based guidance in ICH-E6(R2) section 5.0 Quality Management. This should be of interest to all organizations whether you have already integrated the changes into your practices or are just starting to plan for the integration.
