Auditing laboratories is necessary to verify compliance of laboratory practices with regulations, with external and internal quality standards and with internal procedures. When done right, for example, with appropriate feedback and follow-up, audits can also help to improve the quality and efficiency of laboratory operations.

Key Questions related to FDA compliance are:

  • Who should audit laboratories?
  • How frequently should laboratories bee audited?
  • What are the responsibilities of the audit team?
  • What does FDA require: Vertical or horizontal audits?
  • What are most critical audit questions?
  • How to prepare for an audit?
  • How to conduct an audit?
  • What documents should be audited?
  • How to effectively follow up?
  • How to audit a laboratory quality system?
  • What are critical questions for sampling, sample handling, testing, reporting and archiving of data?
  • How to write an FDA compliant audit report?

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 and examples.
