View Course Outline

The purpose of a regulatory inspection is to ensure that your facility is in compliance with FDA rules and regulations. Investigators want to know that product was manufactured appropriately and that the current Good Manufacturing Practices are up to FDA standard. An inspection can be very intimidating to all involved, but it is vital if you want an inspection that results in a satisfactory report. Many times, the arrival of a Regulatory Investigator is a daunting experience for some. This is why it is important to learn how to properly alert key members that an investigator has arrived, the proper protocol for setting up the Inspection room and any associated war rooms that will support the inspection, and how to manage requests from the investigators in a timely and accurate manner. This preparation minimizes stress and disorder during the inspections.

Working in a highly regulated industry, we know our firms need to be inspection-ready at all times. This is not only to maintain a good rapport with the Regulators, but also as a commitment to quality for our customers, the patients who use the products.

Regulatory inspections should be a time to demonstrate the high level of compliance your firm has committed to the regulations, and to customer safety and quality.
