The FDA’s expectations for training new employees are summed up in 21 CFR 211.25(a), i.e., pharmaceutical professionals require the education, training and experience to complete their job functions.
Onboarding new or transferred employees in a Pharmaceutical Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) environment and ensuring compliance with these requirements create some unique challenges.
Although FDA expectations provide some of the framework regarding types and frequency of training, there are decisions that the company will need to make in light of its evaluation of how to best achieve compliance for its employees, maintain a quality culture, and manage the work environment.
Often there are questions regarding how to translate these requirements to the day-to-day operations of the company. Of particular interest are the different perspectives of onboarding from Human Resources and Quality Assurance (particularly Training), each of which have their own priorities.
Managers, likewise, are eager to have their employees qualified to perform their job functions as efficiently as possible because of pressure to keep pace with the business, and will communicate their expectations to these two organizations.
A successful onboarding strategy will combine the inputs of all these stakeholders and help create a consistent and well-understood process for the company.
