  • The Changing Role of the QP and Regulatory Challenges That Impact the Clinical Supply Chain

    The globalization of clinical trials presents challenges to all those involved in clinical trial conduct around the world. The role of the Qualified Person is key to ensuring the smooth release of IMP in accordance with regulatory guidelines such as the EU Directive.

    The purpose of this webinar is to discuss recent changes in regulatory requirements and their impact on the clinical supply chain, including:

    • The QP release process
    • Considerations when using comparators
    • Cold chain/temperature sensitive materials

    We will discuss ways in which a Sponsor can take steps to address these challenges. The result is a defined approach towards understanding and interpreting new regulatory requirements so as not to compromise on the timelines of a clinical trial.


    Senior level executives in R&D, Quality and Clinical Supply functions for pharmaceutical/biotech companies worldwide.
