The International Standards Organization (ISO) as a whole aims to ensure that products and services are safe as well as reliable by producing standards that can be incorporated into any organization large or small, complex or simple in the nature of the products/services offered. Certification to ISO 9001:2015 demonstrates that a specific set of criteria for the quality management system has been created, maintained and supported by top management. 2 Several elements of ISO 9001:2015 ISO 9001 Certification are already present in robust pharma quality systems included from regulations (domestic and international), regulatory guidance, best practices and industry expectations. Therefore, the focus of this article will not be how to incorporate ISO 9001:2015 into a pharmaceutical organizations quality system, but rather on supplier quality where ISO 9001:2015 plays an important role in setting a quality system standard for suppliers. This standard is recognized internationally and numerous excipient and packaging component suppliers already possess the ISO 9001 certification, so updating to ISO 9001:2015 will be valuable. While ISO 9001 certification is not required it is desired by pharmaceutical companies to ensure that suppliers possess a documented Quality Management System (QMS). To contrast with 21 CFR 211, ISO 9001:2015 certification entails audits performed by registrars that are qualified by an ISO governing body (direct fee paid for certification), while CGMP compliance is enforced (in the U.S. with fees paid via PDUFA (Prescription Drug User Fee Act) by the federal government (FDA). The new revision of ISO 9001:2015 offers a number of benefits such as providing clarity, enhanced leadership involvement in the management system, risk-based thinking, simplified language, common structure and terms, as well as aligning QMS policy and objectives with the strategy of the organization.1 However, the following should be the top five (5) areas of focus --not necessarily in order of importance for the pharmaceutical industrys suppliers that are certified to or at very least, claim conformance to (while pursuing certification) and when assessing their suppliers: 1. Risk-based Thinking 4. Process Approach 5. Leadership Risk-based thinking is critical in every facet of business to achieve the best possible outcome. This concept has always been present in ISO 9001, but is now more apparent in ISO 9001:2015, with additional emphasis on potential areas that would have a direct impact on the operation and overall performance of the QMS. Additionally, risk-based thinking is incorporated in the overall management system, applying the process approach. There are requirements in the standard to determine its QMS process and identify/address its risks and opportunities, define responsibilities of top management to promote awareness of this concept-- and most importantly determine and address risks and opportunities which can affect product/service conformity. Risk-based thinking provides multiple benefits to an organization, such as improved governance and a proactive culture of improvement and compliance.3 For a packaging supplier, if there was a single source identified for a critical material required for production, it would be the suppliers responsibility to have that risk identified and a plan to mitigate such risk for example, qualifying additional suppliers of said material. As a customer who relies on the packaging supplier, wouldnt you want to ensure that analysis is performed to ensure there is a consistent, conforming supply of the components your organization requires to service the marketplace?
