Transferring the ‘Risk Based’, ICH Q9 compliant, drug development and manufacture to CMOs can be subject to many pitfalls. I would like to share my experience of how we can make such Technology Transfer Process (TTP) effective, seamless, and utilizing the latest regulatory, technical, practical, and business tools. Considerations for preparing for the process transfer, ensuring logistics, quality based design principles, equipment and materials consistency, and post-transfer activities will be discussed, which are very crucial to the success. Key Learning Objectives will include: • Understand the product transfer process from preparing the transfer, performing the transfer, and what is required after the transfer • Establish and Review Metrics (measurement/feedback tools) to determine product transfer success • Establish a solid Technical Quality Agreement (TQA)
