The aim of this course is to discuss the process of the statistical sampling by attributes of units of finished drug products, of packaging materials (primary and secondary) and of medical devices as well as sampling of starting materials (APIs and excipients) and to define the prerequisites for implementing a system for reduced sampling and reduced testing for these products.

Starting with regulatory and compendial requirements around sampling, this course will also address charting and trending nonconformities and non-conformant items and good quality practice around sampling plans.
