In normal conditions, regulatory inspections and audits are conducted on-site, however, travel and social restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic have forced regulatory inspections and audits of affiliates to be conducted remotely.
This is a very different way of working and a multi-company collaboration, comprising subject matter experts from 29 BioPhorum members, has shared case studies and discussed the practical factors that make remote inspections and audits effective. Learning from post-inspection feedback from inspectors has also been shared. This experience has been captured in Peer to peer practical guidance on remote inspections and audits.
In this podcast, a member of the collaboration, Søren Thuesen Pedersen, Senior Director of Quality Intelligence and External Affairs at Novo Nordisk, talks to Dawood Dassu, BioPhorum Fill Finish Lead.
