Best Practice Considerations for Efficient and Effective Virtual Audits

Recording from Wednesday, December 2, 2020

The presentation focused on:
Most on-site audits of excipient suppliers have been suspended (deferred) due to the pandemic; however, on-going supplier assessments are still required.
Although it would be difficult, if not impossible, to perform a remote (virtual) audit to assess a new supplier/customer, a remote audit may be an acceptable alternative for a surveillance audit.
Recognizing the challenges that these remote audits bring; how can an auditor accomplish their objective to adequately evaluate (assess) a site? How can the auditee maximize the effectiveness of this approach? This webinar will offer suggestions to achieve these mutual objectives.

Attendees were able to:

  • Prepare an audit plan tailored to the constraints of a remote audit
  • Identify the shared resources necessary to facilitate the remote audit
  • Identify the issues that should be resolved before beginning the remote audit
  • Determine how to manage an audit, based on new paradigms resulting from remote auditing
