Past “good” inspections are no indication of future inspection


This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all regulated companies in evaluating their existing compliance and internal audit emphasis in light of the changes in the FDA's CGMP and EU MDR inspection / audit "paradigm".  Once recognizing the danger and likely locations of potential problem areas, a company can evaluate / perform a gap analysis, and then put in place the necessary fixes to ensure continuing compliance.

The U.S. FDA is getting tougher and has “gone global”. The new EU MDR mandates a change in the Notified-Body inspection paradigm in Europe.  These changes in focus have a major impact on individual compliance objectives, efforts and measurements of success.   Past “good” inspections are no indication of future inspection results.     Once model companies have fallen.  Enhance staff awareness and modify internal inspections to match this global regulatory shift. The FDA is increasingly willing to "pierce the corporate veil" to prosecute senior management involved in lying or fraud.   Counter the negative effects of poor CGMP compliance by being proactive, being prepared with an aggressive, current internal inspection / audit program.
