We are looking for members to join a group that will be dedicated to developing in the short term a Best Practices Guide for Remote Auditing.  This guide will take into account both Supply Chain Security Audits as well as all the audit types Rx-360 currently offers.  If you are interested in joining this group, please contact Jim Fries (jfries@rx-360.org) this week, as hopefully we will look to have a kickoff meeting next week.

Thank you again and please don’t hesitate to reach out if Rx-360 can be of any help to you or your organization during this time.
