Pharmaceutical quality assurance (PQA) is a  high priority, indispensable parts of a pharma company, which includes well- coordinated activities and responsibilities required to ensure that the marketed medicines  are effective, safe, acceptable in quality, and at reasonable cost.

PQA has been designed to meet the needs of the ever-increasing demands of the pharmaceutical industry & research organizations with special emphasis on the quality management system and regulatory submissions

PQA  includes both technical and managerial activities focused on planning, documenting and agreeing on a set of guidelines that are necessary to assure quality plans, inspection and test plans, the selection of defect tracking tools and the training of people in the selected methods and processes.

QA-QC involves the validation of the quality of drugs and ensuring that the in-process & finished products comply with the standards and guidelines of the regulatory bodies.

The quality control expert is expected to test the accuracy and precision of the company’s products and also document & report the same along with the testing procedures used in the process

The career opportunities in different areas in pharmaceutical industries include the following:

  • Quality control and quality assurance which covers the important aspects like cGMP, QC tests, documentation, quality certifications, GLP and regulatory affairs.
  • new product development process including expertise on preparation and submission of regulatory dossiers
  • Transfer technology from R&D to actual manufacturing
  • Quality management principles and systems utilized in the manufacturing industry, including the quality evaluation in the pharmaceutical industries such as quality ISO management systems, tools for quality improvement, Analysis of issues in quality
  • Quality evaluation of pharmaceuticals Stability testing of drug substances and formulations
  • Analytical and bio-analytical method development and validation, which includes instrumental techniques for identification, characterization and quantification of drugs in single and combination dosage forms
  • Post graduates of PQA are also trained and encouraged to build their career as entrepreneurs to start pharmaceutical company or as consultants to pharma companies
