All pharmaceutical and biologics stakeholders, especially lawyers, should understand the current framework for creating and following good manufacturing practices (cGMPs), and the steep legal and regulatory consequences for failing to meet those standards.  This conference, specifically tailored for lawyers but appropriate for all drugs and biologics stakeholders, provided an overview of cGMPs (including revisions mandated by enactment of Section 711 of FDASIA), how FDA evaluates company compliance with good manufacturing practices (including an examination of recent guidelines published by the International Conference on Harmonization and the latest developments on quality by design), and practical advice for how to remain current and compliant.
