Our celebration of World Quality Month continues with a guest white paper, Essential Steps for Implementing a Quality System by Richard Youngstrom. Richard has over 35 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry and has worked with Schering Corporation, Teva Pharmaceuticals, and Anrx among others. His career started with bench work on drug discovery and analytical research. He quickly moved on to director-level positions in quality control and quality assurance.

In Essential Steps for Implementing a Quality System, Youngstrom explores the challenges that pharmaceutical and dietary supplement manufacturers face before implementing a quality system. These road blocks often include a lack of understanding the resources, time and training needed to shift towards a culture of quality.
