QUALITY HISTORY IN THE WORLD Evolution World Chronology 1900 Inspection made by the employee / supervisor 1920 Quality Control as a specialized function 1940 Statistical Control of the process 1960 Total Quality 1980 Systems of Quality Assurance 2000 Quality Systems Management
QUALITY SYSTEMS FEATURES & BENEFIS Features: Defined systems. Measurable. Standardization. Performance Indicators. Benefits: Costs reduction. Control of the measurable parameters. Process monitoring. Domain of the process (reliability). Routine optimization. Objective improvement of the goods.
GMP IN LATIN AMERICA All companies must receive GMP certification otherwise may be punished according to the local legislation. Despite the fact that the certification applies to companies dealing with products risk I, II III and IV, the local regulatory authorities may push those who manufacturer / distribute products risk class III and IV.

SOME COMMENTS FROM A LATAM NATIVE… Despite the targets that talk about Control of the Risk Factors for the health of the consumers based in the Mercosur harmonized legislation and norms, there is a political side that has to be considered. The LATAM governments decided (also) to adopt one quality system in order to: 1.Create a local culture of Quality; 2.Push the quality of the local Medical Devices and IVD kits into a worldwide acceptance range, creating more jobs; 3.Push the prices of the local MD and IVD into a worldwide level, what generates more tax collected; 4.Improve exportations; 5.Avoid importation of bad quality MD and IVD. Summarizing: regulatory affairs can be (and effectively are) as an instrument of government in order to improve economy, create non tariff barriers, besides the protection of the people health. Quality Systems are definitely included in this scenario.

CONCLUSION (I) The Latin America region started to develop mandatory GMP quality systems since 2000 despite the voluntary ISO 9000 certifications previously granted; All companies must be certified according to LATAM GMP; The certification is a pre-requirement for the products registration specially for risk class III and IV; GMP must be renewed annually; Certification of Foreign Manufacturers (Extra Zone Inspection)
CONCLUSION (II) LATAM clients are more demanding about good quality products day after day (learning curve); Employees from companies established in LATAM learned about QS leading to a new level of quality inside the said companies (learning curve). Summarizing: the LATAM GMP is helping to create a new level of culture among companies and clients, including doctors, hospitals, clinics, labs and common users. Companies must pay attention to this social/economical consequence.
