Topic Background:

While being conscious of the products and services purchased is good practice for consumers and most businesses, it is a regulatory requirement for FDA regulated industries. For these organizations, the decisions where to purchase components, raw materials, manufacturing and testing equipment, and even consulting services, need to be well informed and documented through a vendor qualification program. The results of making poor purchasing decisions can lead to situations that impact product quality, regulatory compliance, company profits, and even the reputation of the company.
