Recorded, available with all reference material at any time

Order Button

While Quality by Design (QbD) principles have widely been used to advance product and process quality in many industries, now they also are increasingly adopted by the Pharmaceutical industry for development and commercialization of drugs to improve process efficiency and product quality. For example the  US FDA and the EU EMA are driving QbD principles through common FDA/industry pilot programs and through incentives such as faster new drug approvals. While several QbD based new drugs have already been approved the majority of the industry is unsure what QbD really means and how to implement it.

Key Questions related to QbD are

  • What is QbD?
  • What is the difference to conventional processes?
  • Are there examples for the related terminology such as Critical Process Parameters (CPP), Critical Product Attributes (CPA) or Design Space?
  •  What are the be benefits for the industry?
  • Is QbD required by regulations?
  • Why is FDA so much interested in QbD?
  • Why is risk assessment so important?
  • How to define the design space?
  • What are the elements of the QbD based drug development process?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and an overview and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs, test scripts, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation. The seminar lasts one hour and will be conducted over the phone and supported by the Internet.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • History and regulatory background
  • FDA and EMA co-operation
  • ICH Q8/Q9/Q10/Q11-Guidelines – The foundation for QbD
  • Principles and key benefits for patients, industry and FDAs
  • QbD elements and terminology
  • Comparison with conventional processes
  • Going through the QbD process and steps for drug development
  • The role of risk assessment
  • Defining the design space
  • The right control strategy: Real time release testing vs. end product testing
