Each year, the FDA makes adjustments to its inspection processes and policies and this year is no exception.
Recent important changes include:
- If you think you can easily stop the FDA from taking pictures of your facility during an inspection, think again. The FDA now advises its inspectors to not ask for permission but take their cameras into facilities and snap pictures as they see fit. If a firm complains, the new policy is for the inspector to contact the firm's legal counsel and advise the district management immediately.
- A new user fee may be assessed if FDA conducts a reinspection to evaluate corrective actions that were classified Official Action Indicated (OAI) and determined to be material. This fee may also be assessed for not complying with a recall order issued by FDA under section 423 or 412(f).
- FDA investigators are actively data mining your records during inspections. As nearly all inspectors are using laptops and tablets during their inspections, many are asking for electronic copies of complaint or AER data and taking it back to their hotel rooms each evening to dissect the data and be prepared to ask additional questions the next morning. Providing old or inaccurate data can quickly lead to problems.
