MasterControl's Walt Murray will address MD&M West attendees at 2:00 PM Tuesday, February 10 in Anaheim, California.
|Walt Murray makes learning about
ISO 9001 updates interesting. Don't miss
his MD&M West presentation!
Murray is a frequent MD&M West speaker who is a recognized authority on ISO 9001. He's authoritative and entertaining, so this is a session you won't want to miss.
Murray will be part of a panel discussing the topic “Building Robust Risk Management.” His presentation, “ISO 9001 2015 Update: Implementing More Effective Risk Management” is timely, considering the transition that will be required of companies when the new standard is published in 2015. He’ll discuss the new requirements for review, documentation updates and risk management; analyzing outcomes as a result of risk management changes; and explore the more risk-driven approach to actions to address risk.
“Due to the onslaught of technology for the movement and control of information, this standard reflects the changing environment for regulated companies,” says Murray. “In terms of relevance, any company who currently has either the need or requirement for a quality management system, will be affected by the new convention that this standard promotes. Several of the requirements in the existing standard have been removed in the new standard based on an approach using risk management. That’s why we intend to explore the types and order of magnitude of risk-based thinking in this session.”
Murray is a specialist in the quality and regulatory professions with more than 25 years’ experience to his credit, working with nationally-recognized organizations including Aventis- Pasteur, Merck, Pfizer, Stryker, USANA, Del Monte Foods and the American Red Cross National Labs. He is certified in quality systems auditing, problem solving, and process control using Six Sigma principles that support lean enterprise, including kaizen improvement and advanced planning principles. His extensive audit experience covers several industries and he’s successfully brought several medical device companies to full registration under the ISO process model standard. Murray has also worked extensively in risk and supplier management.
A graduate of the University of Richmond, Murray is a member of the Society for Manufacturing Engineers (SME); Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS); the American Society for Quality (ASQ); and the Intermountain Biomedical Association (IBA).
