Topic Background:

One of the observations made recently in FDA inspections is inadequate investigation or follow-up. During site inspections, FDA investigators focus on how the firm identifies, investigates and corrects or prevents deviations. Every firm should have an effective program for deviation identification and investigation. All personnel involved in the production and control of a pharmaceutical product should understand the need to identify deviations, identify the cause and take actions to correct the deviation, and/or prevent future occurrences of the deviation.
