The FDA inspection is one of the critical measures of your quality system and your organization as a whole. Since a perfect quality system is usually not implemented, the preparation for and management of an FDA inspection is critically important. A well-established quality system provides a solid foundation for passing FDA inspections; however, if you don’t proactively examine your quality system from the perspective of a FDA inspector, you can still have difficulties. A less than perfect quality system has the potential to attract FDA observations, but if you prepare, proactively identify and mitigate the compliance risks, you can still achieve good inspection results and avoid or minimize negative impact on your business.
Based on extensive experience of both managing inspections from the industry side and conducting inspections from FDA side, this seminar will share insights about FDA inspections and provide a set of comprehensive strategies and instructions on how to prepare for and manage an FDA inspection, including how to follow-up and closing out 483s or Warning Letters.
