This week’s roundup consists of the Life Science industry and what’s going on this month. We have an article from LNS Research on how to achieve smart manufacturing, an article from Quality Digest on how the FDA is enhancing their approach to drug review and development and our own post on how to prepare for, manage and follow up an FDA inspection with a risk-driven approach.
This week’s post is a follow up response from last week’s “letter”—if you missed last week’s post, see it in full here.

The goal of many companies involved in the Life Sciences world is to reach and maintain compliance with regulations set forth by agencies such as the FDA. Automated solutions help to achieve these goals and track compliance from beginning to end, while enabling systematic and objective decisions to be made.

While cloud-based Quality Management solutions offer a quicker and cheaper method for achieving quality and compliance, it’s not a one stop destination. You can’t just “park your car and get out.” After implementing the solution, you’ll still have to guide the way to quality, in order to maintain a steady speed and ensure you meet your goals.
This is why I consider the Quality Management System (QMS) to be the cruise control of compliance.
This week’s roundup focuses on Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). Read more to learn strategies for success in ISO 14001:2015, the value that lies in the depth and detail of processes and how to take down risks with EHS management software.

Last year, Primetime producers went on surprise inspections of certain school cafeterias. To their dismay, they found conditions that you should never find food in— from dead rodents in the vicinity, to storing food in temperatures where potentially dangerous bacteria could breed—there were overall hazardous conditions. According to experts who track food safety in schools, these conditions occur across the country, putting children at risk.
Government figures show that the past decade has brought 300 outbreaks of food illness and these incidents are rising by 10 percent each year.
With that said, food experts say that proper handling in school kitchens will kill potentially dangerous bacteria. This supports the need for an automated Food Safety Management System (FSMS).
