Quality Management System ISO 13485- 2017

Quality Management System ISO 13485- 2017
Event on 2017-08-17 09:00:00
Course "Implementing ISO 13485:2016" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

Overview:

The final version of ISO 13485:2016 is now available and companies should be planning their implementation. There are significant changes from the earlier version; they will require major modifications to the Quality Management System (QMS). The new version has better alignment with FDA's QSR, but there are still major differences that create issues for effective QMS implementation.
This workshop covers the differences from the 2003 version to the 2016 version and offers practical implementation advice to update your QMS. Participants will also learn the differences with QSR and understand how to resolve them. The workshop uses extensive examples and exercises to help clarify the concerns.
Some regulatory systems will rely on ISO 13485:2016 through the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP). The US will participate in MDSAP, but doesn't expect to change its regulations. The EU is not participating, has published its own version, EN ISO 13485:2016, and will continue with the Notified Body system. However, the EU intends to replace the directives with new regulations resulting in new versions of EN ISO 13485:2016 and EN ISO 14971:2012.
The workshop covers implications in particular regulatory systems including MDASP and its nonconformity grading system.

Why should you attend:

The transition to ISO 13485:2016 can be complicated and, for some companies, the period is short, depending on when the current certificate expires. Start planning and implementing as soon as possible. This workshop provides the knowledge and understanding to update your QMS.

Workshop Objectives:

Participants will learn the major changes in the new version of the standard. In addition, they will understand where the new standard and QSR do not agree. The primary objective is to give participants the understanding needed for an efficient and effective QMS update.

Lineament analysis and appropriate sampling and Quality Assurance Quality Control 2017

Lineament analysis and appropriate sampling and Quality Assurance Quality Control 2017
Event on 2017-08-24 09:00:00
Course "Lineament analysis and appropriate sampling and Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) procedures to help you find your next mine" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

Overview:

Upon completing this course, participants should:
• Understand the limitations of the current exploration process
• Learn to use lineament and satellite interpretation as a way to define where to concentrate their exploration efforts
• How to implement QA&QC procedures to guarantee the quality of the collected data

Why you should attend:

We will introduce you to an effective and affordable methodology that identifies prospective targets which are related to, or controlled by tectonic structures. Even over new areas with limited or nonexistent geological information, we are able to help you concentrate your exploration efforts to keep your budget in the black.
Appropriate sampling and Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) procedures are essential in all aspects of the mineral deposit evaluation process to ensure that the best possible confidence in resultant mineral resource and reserve estimates are achieved, as the quality of an estimate is dependent on the quality of the data used.
The Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) procedures and protocols are designed to ensure that data collected and created by the company is of a high level of quality and is in compliance with CIM Standards and Guidelines. In practical terms, geological quality control procedures are intended to monitor precision and accuracy of the assay data, as well as possible sample contamination during sample preparation and assaying.
Compliance with the industry-established QA/QC is no longer an option, but a necessity for all the companies to implement, especially those that trade in the markets.
We have implemented a Quality Assurance program for the field sampling procedures which include collection, labeling, and shipping components. Quality Assurance is essentially the management system that operates to ensure credible results. Our Quality Control component of this system is a set of activities intended to control the quality of the data from collection through to analysis. It consists of day-to-day activities such as: the adherence to written protocols; up-to-date and suitable training of personnel; the use of reliable laboratories with excellent QA&QC systems in place, the regular use of Quality Control (QC) samples (blanks, standard samples, and field duplicates); and, diligent record keeping. The prime objective of the field QA program is to maximize accuracy by reducing introduced variability.
If you want to find your next ore body in the most effective way, then this webinar is for you.

Areas Covered in the Session:

• History of the problem, why we need to change the current approach.
• Lineament analysis
• Lineament analysis and satellite interpretation of data
• Physical modeling (3D strain analysis and 3D stress analysis).
• Statistical procedures (Compositional data analysis, correlation analysis, principal component and other methods).
• Defining a QA/QC program, Blanks, duplicates, standards, external controls.
• Procedures and audits
• Rock naming in the field
• Conclusions and recommendations.

Who Will Benefit:

This course is designed for people tasked with developing, maintaining and/or improving environmental monitoring programs for non-sterile manufacturing facilities. This includes individuals that have Quality Management Systems responsibilities for making general improvements in their organization's performance specifically related to microbial control of the manufacturing environment.

FDA Effective Regulatory & Quality Submissions 2017

FDA Effective Regulatory & Quality Submissions 2017
Event on 2017-08-03 09:00:00
Course "FDA Legal Writing Skills that Result in Effective Regulatory & Quality Submissions" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

Overview:

Law school prepares attorneys to condense complex sets of facts into concise, persuasive arguments that achieve client objectives. These writing skills are even more critical when drafting responses and applications to FDA that are predicated on arcane scientific and technical arguments. Because regulations are legally binding requirements predicated upon statutory laws and judicial opinions, it is essential that professionals in the pharmaceutical and medical device companies clearly understand and effectively employ legal writing techniques to frame persuasive argument when negotiating with FDA. The success or failure of many new drugs, biologic or medical device projects hinge on presenting essential information in a persuasive manner. Do you use these legal drafting skills when preparing quality and regulatory documents?
In this seminar, you will learn the legal writing skills and practical techniques that will enhance your chances for success even if some of your test results or other supporting information are somewhat lacking. Remember, good regulatory writing will meet FDA branch-level requirements but the best and most effective submissions can withstand scrutiny at the FDA Division level.

Why you should attend:

Most regulatory, quality and R&D professionals rise within an organization due to their scientific and technical understanding of the products in their company's pipeline. However, those professionals who can prepare written and oral arguments that effectively persuade regulatory agencies to agree with their positions are the one who achieve the highest levels of success within the organization. Lawyers know these writing techniques – do you?

Areas Covered in the Session:

• Basic communications skills that all successful attorneys use to win arguments, in legal briefs and oral presentations.
• Step-by-step analysis of how to present both good and poor data in a persuasive manner.
• How to train scientists and engineers to generate "good" data to support legal, regulatory and quality claims
• Tips and secrets to framing an argument that makes even poor data look good.
• Examples of good writing that can be useful templates for training and skills development.
• What you should never say in a quality or regulatory document

Who Will Benefit:

The seminar will be valuable to any person working in Regulatory Affairs or Quality Management who is responsible for summarizing data and technical results, obtaining regulatory clearance or approval of a product, and selling or marketing regulated products.
• Regulatory Affairs professionals
• Quality Assurance professionals
• Marketing professionals
• Scientific and Engineering / Product Development Managers
• Consultants to any regulated industry

Buzztala Intros HD Quality Product Video Ads for Search Advertising


(PRWEB) May 20, 2015

Today Buzztala announced the addition of high definition quality video ads designed for ecommerce retailers who are interested in reaching shoppers in the mobile era. Buzztala is solving a huge product search problem for top brands online. Retailers and brands spend more than $ 18B per year on search engine marketing (SEM) trying to attract customers using desktop and mobile browsers. However, this approach misses over half the intended audience as 52% of all internet time is now spent in mobile apps (primarily Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) where users prefer video content over reading on limited screens. Moreover, despite half of the U.S. Digital Ad market is spent on Search, there is still no product centric video content in this huge sector to reach these mobile + visual shoppers.

Buzztala is filling this need by rapidly building a vast library of Product Video Ads (PVAs) ideally suited for mobile consumption. At the core of Buzztala is its proprietary Product Video Ad platform that turns retailers product feeds into short hosted videos and then publishes them everywhere and anywhere people are consuming content, desktop or mobile. Buzztalas proprietary video SEO surfaces videos organically in search engine result pages (SERPs) while its platform traffics ads programmatically to boost margins and meet advertiser performance goals. The results speak for themselves: Buzztala videos average an industry leading 9.6% click through rate (CTR), 2.8% conversion rate, and outperforms Googles most effective ads by more than 4X based on current data.

The visual web is here and Facebook is a great example. The growth of Facebook has entirely shifted to mobile, and users overwhelmingly prefer video content, says Jay DeDapper, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Buzztala. Yet while the rest of the world has embraced the mobile era, product search marketing is still done thru product feeds and static, flat image content. Buzztala is now working with some of the largest retailers in the world like Sears and Walmart to modernize their product catalogs into video so they can generate more effective campaigns from their search marketing budgets.

Product search has one-to-one mapping of products to metadata like descriptions, prices and images but not video. A lot of advertisers tell us theyre ready to change that to stay ahead of their competitors, said Henry Wong, co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Every month the Buzztala Platform is producing tens of thousands of videos hosted by real people talking about our clients products and services videos watched by millions of shoppers in social (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube), via organic search, and in traditional PPC campaigns bolstered with performance-boosting video links.

About Buzztala

The Buzztala Organic Video Ad Marketplace is giving brands and retailers better ROI on search marketing budgets with our Product Video Ads (PVAs). These short video product summaries capture top organic search positions and deliver industry-leading CTRs. With our technology platform and presenter network Buzztala can produce videos featuring real people at scale for millions of products — at just $ 5 per video for new Advertisers! The results speak for themselves: Buzztalas PVAs are outperforming Google search ads by 4x and deliver industry leading performance metrics.
