How to Perform a Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) – Part 1


Quality Risk Management (QRM) principles require the evaluation of risk to patient safety and product quality based on scientific knowledge, data and experience. Regulators expect that QRM is inherently built into the backbone of the Quality Management System (QMS) by using a lifecycle approach to implement both formal and informal risk tools that support the elements defined in ICH Q9 for risk assessment, risk control, risk review, communication of identified Risks and acceptance of residual risks. Upon completion of this course you will understand the overall concept of Quality Risk Management (QRM), where does risk come from, the potential areas for Quality Risk Management application, the regulatory requirements and the various risk management tools.
