How to Survive FDA's 'New' Inspection and Enforcement Practices

With Industry Proven Tool Kits for Preparation, Conduct and Follow-up

Recorded, available with all reference material at any time

Order Button


FDA inspections and enforcement recently have become much more aggressive  Just a few facts: in 2011 FDA has increased the budget for manufacturing plant inspections by 30% to $135M$, in the same period the number of  warning letters increased by 155%, shipment holds and multiple product recalls have been announced even for global players, one company had to pay 500 M$ fine as a result of failed inspections, and inspectors ask for details they never did before.

Single and multiple 483 Inspectional Observations and Warning Letters can be a disaster for a company
. The only way to survive the new practices is to get up-to-date information on the new inspection practices and to prepare your organization accordingly.  Knowing FDA regulations and guidelines help but is not enough any more. Knowing what FDA inspectors are looking at, knowing inspection trends and what type of response is expected in case of inspectional observations and warning letters is much more important.

Key Questions related to FDA Inspections are:

  • What is FDA's traditional inspection process?
  • Why did FDA change the inspection and enforcement practices
  • FDA is using the risk based approach for inspections, what items are considered high risk?
  • What are the new inspection questions and details we should be aware of?
  • What are most common deviations?
  • What to do if we don't agree with the inspector's observations?
  • How can I avoid 483's and Warning Letters: during the inspection, in the exit meeting, afterwards?
  • To what level does FDA expect preventive actions to avoid reoccurrence of the same or similar problem: same equipment, same department, same site, for the entire company?
  • Many times FDA did reject responses to 483s because there was not enough detail, what should be the level of detail?
  • Is the information provided in the seminar also useful for other inspections, e.g., national inspections, or international inspections, such as WHO, EMA or combined inspections, e.g., FDA and EMA plus WHO?

How does the audio seminar help:

Answers will be presented by Dr. Ludwig Huber in a new interactive audio seminar. During the seminar, the speaker will present strategies and give practical recommendations. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like case studies, SOPs, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective preparation for FDA and other inspections.

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • Inspection process for API, drug manufacturing and device manufacturing
  • Recent changes: summary and details
  • 10 Examples of recent observations/deviations that came as a surprise
  • Strategy to respond to the 'New' type of inspections
  • Case study: Going through a typical inspection process
  • Preparing your staff for the 'New' FDA inspections
  • Conducting 'FDA inspection like' internal audits
  • Tips how to respond during inspections to avoid inspectional observations
  • The role of the Exit Meeting to avoid enforcement
  • Developing a corrective action plan with identification of the root case
  • Developing a detailed preventive action plan to avoid reoccurrence
  • How to use all this information for all national and international inspections
