The adoption of quality by design principles and subsequent incorporation of enhanced approaches in regulatory submissions introduced several challenges for industry as well as regulators. This session will discuss how the principles described in ICH Q9 are applied, specifically how quality risks are assessed, managed, and communicated by industry and evaluated by regulators and how results from risk assessments are used to determine quality criteria for demonstrating control and developing and maintaining a robust control strategy for a product.

Learning Objectives

Describe how quality risks are assessed, managed, and communicated by industry; Discuss how quality risks are evaluated by regulators.
