Quality Culture has evolved into a critical component for biopharma and medical device companies since it was initially established in the early 2000s, when both regulatory agencies and industry were focused on increasing quality throughout the entire life cycle of product development. It has become clear that, whatever an employee’s position is – from technician to C suite executive – every department of the company should be built around quality so that the end goal is to ultimately provide the end-user – the patient – a quality drug or medical product.

Over the past 10-20 years, companies have developed the work required to develop a Quality Culture; some have accomplished this, but some have not. Initiatives taken to advance towards Quality Culture include working on regulatory deficiencies and all issues that can trigger the receipt of FDA warning letters; these initiatives require hard work to actually equate all work done to true Quality Culture.  Everyone in the organization must be fully knowledgeable about quality; the quality concept must be instilled as a critical requirement in their jobs. 

In addition to ensuring training and educating all employees on the importance of Quality Culture, another challenge, especially for older companies, is bringing their facilities thoroughly up-to-date, including equipment, computer and document management systems, digitalization, etc.; that can be costly and time-consuming.  New facilities and those being planned should focus particularly on current and future trends, equipment, and digital capabilities.
