Submitted by: MetricStream, Inc.
Palo Alto, CA (OPENPRESS) July 10, 2012 -- MetricStream, the market leader in Enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions, announced today that Peter Murray, a practiced quality assurance and GMP compliance expert in the pharmaceutical industry and former Quality Director at GlaxoSmithKline, will join Vinay Bapna, Marketing Director of MetricStream, in a webinar titled 'Ensuring Product Safety with an Outsourced Supply Chain'. The webinar will be held on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 at 11 am Eastern time.
Today, most life sciences organizations resort to an outsourced supply chain system. While this system enables organizations to bring down operational costs and increase productivity, it has also invited a more tightened regulatory focus in terms of the quality of products and the safety it would provide to end-users. Any kind of oversight in adhering to the product quality and compliance standards laid by regulatory bodies, or any compromise in the safety of medical devices and pharmaceutical products would have organizations face stringent litigations or pay heavy penalties. With the trends of globalization setting in, the changing dynamics of supply chains, and the looming risks and threats that occur in outsourced supply chains, life sciences organizations are looking at effective methods and innovative approaches to identify and mitigate risks to assure product safety and quality.
With more than four decades of international experience in pharmaceutical manufacturing, Mr. Murray has over 20 years of experience in handling quality and compliance for third party contract manufacturers. During the discussion, Mr. Murray will share best practices that will enable life sciences organizations to:
Overcome the emerging challenges in the supply chain
Create strategies to maintain product safety while achieving security of supply and cost efficiency
Build systems and follow processes to support a sustainable and effective supply chain program
