Successful FDA Inspections

Preparation - Conduct - Follow Up


Order Button

An FDA inspection can be a nightmare that costs your company money, time and reputation, or it can be an opportunity to make a long lasting good impression at the FDA and to improve your quality systems.

Single and multiple 483 Inspectional Observations and Warning Letters can be a disaster for a company. Bad reputation for the company and employees, delay of new product approvals, import alters, products recalls, multi-million $ fees, seizures and consent degrees can be the consequence if not followed up correctly in time. However, 483's and warning letters can be avoided.

Knowing FDA regulations and guidelines help but are not enough. Knowing what FDA inspectors are looking at and knowing enforcement practices and trends are equally important. And when it happened, damage can be minimized by effective and timely response.

Key Questions related to FDA Inspections are:

  • What is FDA's new system inspection process?
  • Which systems are always inspected?
  • What are inspectors looking at within the systems?
  • What are most frequent deviations?
  • How to prepare our staff for an inspection?
  • How to treat an inspector?
  • What to do if I don't agree with the inspector's observations?
  • What documents should be available and what can/should we give or not give to the inspector?
  • How can I avoid 483's and Warning Letters: during the inspection, in the exit meeting, afterwards?

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 SOPs, templates and examples will help immediate and cost effective implementation.

  • Understand the inspection process
