Change management is essential in the pharmaceutical industry. Unforeseen changes in raw materials or the packaging of pharmaceutical products can potentially cause unintended effects on product performance or safety, even creating potential risks to patient health and brand security. Even if changes would be known in advance, frequent changes mean frequent need to requalify changes, which takes time and resources. With a comprehensive change management protocol, changes are overall avoided as much as possible, and mandatory changes are assessed and informed to relevant parties.
