Join us for a webinar on July 15  for a discussion of the webinar Publicly available warning letter and inspection observation data provide powerful resources for understanding areas of regulatory focus and a benchmark for evaluating potential vulnerabilities within your quality system. 

Fiscal year 2019 saw the most warning letters issued by FDA to makers of finished pharmaceutical products in recent history. During the last 12 months, a total of 81 warning letters were issued to finished product manufacturers worldwide, the most since the fiscal year 2015.  This is in contrast to the number of warning letters sent to API manufacturers, which has fallen since peaking in 2017. 

Over half (46 to be exact) of the 81 warning letters were issued to companies located in the United States.  The most frequently cited GMP violations in warning letters concern basic requirements.

In addition to an increase in Warning Letters, the frequency of FDA 483 observations issued to pharmaceutical companies has continued to rise over the past few years.

In the fiscal year 2019, there were a total of 779 483 observations issued for drug inspections compared to 716 in 2018, 694 in 2017, and 691 in 2016.

The specific issues contained within these recent warning letters and 483 observations reveals a continuation of a trend that’s been running for years: lapses in meeting basic GMP requirements.
