The Pharmaceutical Quality System (PQS), supported by ICH Q10, is the key foundation on which product realization depend. Through lecture and group exercises this course illustrates how quality systems work, the purpose of the different elements, how they connect to each other and how to recognize and transfer knowledge/connectivity throughout the organization. The diagram below from ICH Q10, covers the product life cycle for a PQS/QMS system and all aspects will be covered by this course. We will be using QMS and PQS terms interchangeably throughout this course to establish a holistic approach.
