Part 2 - Data – The Critical Element to QAPI Success! 
 

Description:
Part 1 - Use the new regulations as the operational building blocks of a robust risk management process. Build you process on the solid foundation of facility assessment. Build your walls with a solid QAPI plan. Learn to use QAPI as the daily process for maintenance and improvement of operations. Protect your entire operation with the roof of Corporate Compliance. This intensive demonstrate how these three elements are not separate programs but integrated components of managing risks. This is how we do business – not what we do.
