What does an FDA inspection cover?


The FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) is used to inspect facilities to determine whether regulations and laws for the manufacture, labelling and handling of products that are commercially distributed from Germany in the USA are being observed.



4 Examples of FDA inspection


Companies that manufacture high-risk drugs and devices are inspected by the FDA as a matter of priority, as are newly registered facilities and those that have committed violations in the past. Here are four examples of FDA inspections you should know as a manufacturer:



  • 1. Routine inspection
    A standard inspection is every two years for domestic facilities and about every 9 years for foreign facilities. Immediate corrective action as soon as violations are detected is assessed positively.

  • 2. Pre-approval inspection
    this is an inspection that is applied before a new product is marketed.

  • 3. Inspection based on a specific problem
    is used to investigate a problem that has been notified to the FDA.4. Follow-up of compliance - is the second inspection of violations that have already occurred.
