Emergency ServicesFDA Inspection? 483 or Major Observation? Warning Letter? Product Recall? Reportable Event?
Stay calm. Help is on the way.
If you manufacture a medical or in vitro diagnostic device, emergencies happen. The FDA can inspect you at any time with very little or no notice. An adverse event can occur. How prepared you are can differentiate between an efficient and cost-effective response and a prolonged, expensive struggle to resolve the problem. It is critical to respond carefully and thoughtfully.

FDA inspections can either be announced a few days prior or be unannounced. Internationally, your inspection may be announced with less than six months’ notice. Stressful? Our experienced staff has been in your shoes; we have been in front of FDA Investigators and ISO Auditors defending a Quality Management System. We have been in the back room, predicting their next move, coaching subject matter experts before they go into the front room, and providing guidance to keep you compliant.
Corrections and Removals
If you have a potential domestic or international product recall, you have to know where to start and when to tell the appropriate authorities. All of these questions require a risk/benefit analysis. Every issue must be handled appropriately to ensure patient safety and minimize any potential damage to your firm’s reputation and bottom line. If you are not prepared, the process can become challenging and expensive.
