The CMO relationship can quickly turn sour. Discover how to get the best from CMOs.

FALLS CHURCH, Va., April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Ensuring the Quality Connection with Your CMO via Risk Management

**An Interactive Workshop Presented by FDAnews and ValSource** June 26-27, 2019 • Raleigh, NC https://www.fdanews.com/cmo

Contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) are a two-edged sword, boosting productivity without capital investment...or landing in a costly mess of trouble.

Everything depends on how one sets up and then manages the relationship.

And that's where we come in.

FDAnews has teamed up with ValSource, a leading management consultancy to life science manufacturers, to guide one to more productive, profitable and hassle-free relationships with CMOs. Attendees will find approaches that can be mutually beneficial.

The secret? A quality systems-based relationship with CMOs. Over the course of two highly interactive days of presentations and discussions, case studies, practical risk-based thinking activities with experienced instructors (who have worked on both sides of the contract giver and acceptor equation) attendees discover:

  • What to include in quality agreements: 'Must have' vs. 'nice to have'
  • Working with a CMO using a hazard identification tool (HIT)
  • Regulatory citations: Who is responsible — you, or the CMO?
  • Monitoring and auditing your CMOs
  • Team-building: Participation from the owners' organizations and CMOs (plant-in- plant concepts)
  • Joint effective and efficient deviation investigation techniques
  • Creating a checklist: Key items to consider when working with a CMO
  • Avoiding and resolving conflicts between client company ("contract giver") and CMO ("contract acceptor")
  • Communication information to comply with process validation and health authority expectations

Plan on making time for networking. Fellow attendees will be drug, device and diagnostics makers facing the same problems . They're eager to know different solutions, and to share theirs.

New to CMOs? Unhappy with things as they are? Maybe a fresh look at relationships that wither without constant attention is needed. Whatever the situation, this conference helps shape a leaner, more effective and profitable manufacturing situation.
