Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training will outline the possible consequences for failing to promptly and adequately correct significant violations related to cGMPs, new drugs or devices, labeling or other regulatory issues resulting in advisory, administrative and judicial actions.

Why Should You Attend:

It is important for pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and their employees to understand the full scope of regulatory actions available to the FDA as tools to bring non-compliant companies into compliance with all applicable FDA laws and regulations. Being aware of this enables individuals at all levels in the firm to know what is at stake for themselves and their company.

This webinar will provide participants with a basic understanding of how non-compliant activity can affect their company and, closer to home, themselves. While the agency has always been vigilant in taking necessary regulatory actions, it has become increasingly aggressive in the recent past in enforcing the provisions of the FD and C Act. The FDA has imposed civil penalties, huge monetary disgorgement and restitution fines, and invoked its Application Integrity Policy where fraud has been committed. The agency also has, when necessary, seized products, enjoined firms/individuals, and criminally prosecuted companies and individuals.

This webinar will provide firms and potentially responsible and vulnerable employees with an outline of the possible consequences for failing to promptly and adequately correct significant violations related to cGMPs, new drugs or devices, labeling or other regulatory issues.

In 1996, Mr. Richman took on the position of Team Leader for the Adverse Drug Reaction and Pharmacy Compounding Team in FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). In his subsequent CDER position as Deputy Director, Division of New Drugs and Labeling Compliance, he supervised regulatory operations relating to Rx and OTC drugs. He was instrumental in developing a regulatory strategy to address the marketing of unapproved drug products. In 2005, Mr. Richman became the Director of the Division of Compliance Management and Operations (DCMO) in FDA’s Office of Enforcement, providing oversight for the review and clearance of proposed legal actions submitted by field offices, supervising the review and preparation of regulatory actions to address violations disclosed during Team Biologics inspections, and overseeing the nationwide activities of field office recall coordinators.

Topic Background:

Most people in the pharmaceuticals and medical devices industries are aware that FDA investigators often issue form FDA-483s at the conclusion of an inspection and that, if deficiencies are not adequately and promptly corrected, a Warning Letter might be sent by FDA to the top management of a firm. But it is also important for employees, including middle and top level management, to be aware of all of the various advisory, administrative, and judicial sanctions that the FDA can use to prevent continuing non-compliant activity and even punish firms and responsible individuals (which includes top corporate officials) whose actions or inactions have resulted in violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
