Kari Miller, Vice President of Regulatory & Product Management, Pilgrim Quality Solutions
Let’s face it, the arms of regulators are getting longer and so is their vision. The extended supply chain is experiencing additional oversight by regulatory bodies around the world, and in fact, your suppliers’ suppliers are not immune to that scrutiny. The list of organizational quality stakeholders continues to grow as the value chain expands to include suppliers and even regulators themselves.
This means that a Quality Management System (QMS) needs to be enterprise strong and it needs to be global if an organization is to respond to harmonization of standards, guidelines, and regulations around the world regarding the organization’s value chain.
