Why inspections are conducted and by what statutory authority?


Many regulated companies preparing for FDA inspections are not prepared and the outcome can be negative as we see all the time with enforcement actions.

This session provides the fundamentals and the ground rules on how to prepare for and survive an FDA inspection no matter if you are a Class I, II, III device or a pharmaceutical or biologics manufacturer. This presentation will review and emphasize the do's and don'ts and cardinal rules as to interviewing, how to respond, reviewing documentation, etiquette, use of certain words, body language, etc. Emphasis is placed on the company's SOP on dealing with inspectors and knowing how to be prepared, proactive...and being able to defend and justify... and what it takes to achieve a favorable outcome.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • Why inspections are conducted and by what statutory authority?
  • The emphasis on systems-based inspections…and the IOM and other crucial FDA reference documents.
  • What is subject to FDA purview and what's off-limits?
  • Understand and apply the do's and don'ts and comprehend that preparation is the key to success.
  • What are the prohibited "Acts" and the enforcement categories that you need to deal with.
  • What you need to know and do to prepare for, during and even after the inspection…and why your inspection response team is key?
  • The company's Inspection Plan (SOP) can make or break the inspection depending on how to use it and training your personnel.
  • How to respond to findings and facilitating the documentation and remediation process…and reaching final closure?
