  9. Quality Management QA System should ensure (2): • Controls are performed, including intermediates, bulk, calibration and validation • Correct processing and checking of the finished product • Products are sold/supplied only after review by the authorized person • Complying with marketing authorization, production and QC requirements • Proper storage, distribution and handling 1.1 e - h

  10. Quality Management QA System should ensure (3): • Procedures for self-inspection and/or quality audits • Reporting, investigation and recording of deviations • System for change control/approval • Regular evaluation of product quality to verify consistency and continued improvement 1.1 i - l
