Learning from Laboratory Related Warning Letter

Learn from Mistakes Others Made and How to Avoid Them


Order Button

Analytical laboratories are considered high risk systems. Typically they perform the last control step before products are released. Therefore laboratory systems are on the radar screen of FDA and other inspections. Laboratories are most frequently inspected and the number of warning letters and 483 inspection observations rank before production and distribution systems. Laboratories are unsure on how to avoid warning letters.

Key questions related to laboratory warning letters are

  • What are inspectors looking for during inspections?
  • What are most frequently found deviations?
  • There are so many warning letters letters on the internet, how can I find the ones related to laboratories?
  • 483s are hardly published on the Internet, where can I find them?
  • Establishment inspections reports (EIR) are like FDA inspection protocols and very useful, where can I find them?
  • How can I avoid 483's and warning letters?
  • What can we do to reduce damage after we received a 483 or warning letter?

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 typical and representative examples of 483s, EIRs and Warning Letters with deviations related to laboratory work. Each example will be followed by detailed recommendations on how to avoid them. After the seminar, an extensive list of reference material like SOPs and templates will help to develop and implement procedures to avoid FDA observations and Warning Letters. .

During the interactive presentation you learn about:

  • FDA enforcement practices - 483's vs. EIR and Warning letters
