Accelerating Post-approval Change Management with ICH Q12 and Modern Technologies

An FDAnews FREE Webinar • Sponsored by Veeva Systems and Axendia Inc.
Thursday, April 18, 2019 • 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EDT

Adopting ICH Q12 and modern technologies can reduce the number of changes that require regulatory approval as well as accelerate evaluation, implementation, and global approval of a change. In a 2017 PDA survey, almost 40% of respondents said that 50% or more of their post-approval changes required submission to a health authority. With increasing complexity in the manufacturing of new therapies and growing number of changes that require filing review and updates in multiple markets, the global post-approval change management (PACM) process is becoming unmanageable.

Modern technologies are reducing complexity in pharma by bringing together systems and people to seamlessly support global, end-to-end processes. With greater visibility and collaboration, change management processes are more efficient and less risky. In this webinar, learn:

  • What is ICH Q12 and potential benefits
  • Best practices and approaches to key PACM challenges
  • Approaches to manage ‘established conditions’
  • How technology can support ICH Q12 and simplify change management
  • Innovative ways leading pharma companies are addressing PACM
