CMOs give you a manufacturing edge. That’s why you take them on. But then too often you find yourself in a management morass — getting unsatisfactory results, wasting precious time and resources, even skirting with regulatory violations.

Maybe it’s time for a fresh approach — a quality systems-based relationship rather than the piecemeal management style that drags down so much of drug, device and diagnostics manufacturing.

Mark your calendar for the workshop where you discover all that — and more.

You’ll spend two days in intense hands-on learning with ValSource COO Hal Baseman and his team of experienced instructors (who have worked on both sides of the contract giver and acceptor equation). They’re steeped in quality systems, aseptic processing, validation, training, contamination control and running a CMO. You’ll go home armored with your own plan to build and managed a risk-based lifecycle model custom-tailored to your needs.

Here’s just a sampling of what you’ll discover:

  • What to include in quality agreements: ‘Must have’ vs. ‘nice to have’
  • Working with a CMO using a hazard identification tool (HIT)
  • Regulatory citations: Who is responsible — you, or the CMO?
  • Monitoring and auditing your CMOs
  • Team-building: Participation from the owners’ organizations and CMOs (plant-in-plant concepts)
  • Joint effective and efficient deviation investigation techniques
  • Creating a checklist: Key items to consider when working with a CMO
  • Avoiding and resolving conflicts between client company (“contract giver”) and CMO (“contract acceptor”)
  • Communication information to comply with process validation and health authority expectations
  • And much more!
