setup transparent systems

The regulations help us, guide us along, but let’s be fair..it can be a pain as well. The pharmaceutical regulatory environment is in constant change and it’s hard for companies to be ready through the entire supply chain when rules come in effect.

  • What needs to be done?
  • When does it need to be done?
  • What are the costs involved?

How does this impact our product portfolio and supply chain planning?

It is my experience that regulatory people are highly motivated and very knowledgeable but struggle to pass information through the supply chain.  Regulatory information and forecasting systems are moving information in different directions.

It is advisable to setup transparent systems and cross-train in the use of these systems in order to make sure compliance needs are met in an effective way.
