Question of the Week

Does quality assurance have to be separate from quality control?

There is no obligation to divide the duties of a quality function into two independent departments of Quality Control and Quality Assurance. Depending on the size and structure of a company, however, this may be advisable. If such a division is made, the responsibilities of the Head of Production, Head of Quality Control and Head of Quality Assurance must be unequivocally defined and differentiated.

[GMP MANUAL, Chapter 19.A.3]
