Contract Services Library
Frost & Sullivan estimates that the pharmaceutical contract services market in the United States is growing by roughly 8% per year. Pharmaceutical recalls, 483s and consent decrees are also on the rise. Industry observers say that the parallel growth in the use of contract services and the amount of quality issues is no coincidence. For instance, McKinsey & Co. consultants identified a 16% increase in pharmaceutical recalls that can be directly traced to quality failures on the part of suppliers or contract partners.
How are these dynamics taking place when operating companies and contract manufacturers alike are passionately dedicated to product quality and patient safety? Often, the answers are complex – lapses in effective communications, lapses in process or product knowledge, tech and knowledge transfer issues and perhaps even ineffective selection of contract partners.
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing’s Contract Services Resource Library is an assembly of resources to help with these difficult issues.
