Overview of the webinar

 

Pharmaceutical and life sciences companies are under an extreme amount of pressure to maintain an ever-increasing amount of regulation and legislation. With this pressure, they still need to increase efficiencies, bring new products to the market faster, reduce prices, deliver innovation, ensure patient compliance and maintain business compliance. After completing this course, you’ll be able to:

 

  • Articulate Packaging and Labeling’s role in product development
  • Ensure adherence to regulatory agency requirements
  • Anticipate potential obstacles in marketing, medical affairs, regulatory, legal or quality assurance
  • Work effectively with contract manufacturers or packagers
  • Manage labeling in foreign languages
  • Avoid unnecessary production costs, back orders and recalls, especially during product launches

Who should attend?

This course will be of benefit to anyone who is a stakeholder in product launches, revisions to pharmaceutical labeling and packaging, or timely delivery of the product, including:

  • Marketing
  • Project Management
  • Operations
  • Regulatory Affairs
  • Labeling and Packaging
  • Quality Assurance
  • Production Control
  • Packaging Technology
  • Labeling Coordination
  • Package Engineers
  • Packaging Operations
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Quality Assurance Consultants
  • Research and Development

Why should you attend?

Occupying a critical position in the success or failure of any pharmaceutical product launch, Packaging and Labeling form a bridge between the conception of a product and its realization and distribution. Their activities are also crucial for compliance with regulatory agency requirements.

Still, their importance is often underestimated, especially in the planning phases, which leads to unnecessary increases in cycle time, costly errors, and delays in product availability, or product recalls due to noncompliance. Understanding the packaging and labeling process in the larger product development process will provide you with an advantage in achieving success.
