The use of contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) in the life science industry has been growing at a rapid pace over the past decade, and the trend is projected to continue across all industry sectors, including pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device. As industry leaders continue to turn to external partners at a rapid rate, experts predict that the global CMO market value will exceed $60 billion by 2018. Thus, effective quality oversight and risk management have become more essential than ever when ensuring successful partnerships, GMP compliance and a lucrative completion of the product’s outsourced manufacturing supply chain.
The 6th CMO Quality Oversight & Risk Management Summit brings together industry innovators to connect and discuss the latest outsourcing trends and hot button issues in pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device contract manufacturing.
The conference is designed to optimize partnerships between sponsors and CMOs while serving as a networking platform and offering professionals vital information on how to strategically navigate the outsourcing and quality oversight of CMOs in an evolving regulatory landscape. Additionally, this event offers vigorous tactics to track and prevent GMP failures, ultimately preventing product recalls and other adverse events.
A mutual understanding of risk involved for each project and a transparent working relationship are both key prerequisites for a successful client/CMO partnership. This conference will offer a unique tool kit to help design the right manufacturing and development program, establish a sense of co-ownership and responsibility for the CMO and client, execute a unified contract, and identify roles and responsibilities for each member of a project.
Additional topics will include: best practices to effectively oversee and manage external manufacturers, tips on utilizing Big Data analytics to improve CMO results, the newest FDA policies and their impact on CMO partnerships, effective risk management strategies for pharma companies and CMOs, the latest outsourcing trends, and strategies for creative contracting.
