An Interative Workshop Presented BY WCS & David R. Dills

This is a practical, hands-on course designed to provide pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, biologics and medical device professionals with the information and tools they require to prepare for and manage an FDA inspection efficiently, effectively and successfully. Many regulated companies preparing for FDA inspections are not prepared and the outcome can be negative as we see all the time with enforcement actions. This seminar provides the fundamentals and the ground rules on how to prepare for and survive an FDA inspection no matter if you are a Class I, II, III device or a pharmaceutical or biologics manufacturer. This presentation will review and emphasize the do's and don'ts and cardinal rules as to interviewing, how to respond, reviewing documentation, etiquette, use of certain words, body language, responding to questions/requests, etc., and certainly replying to 483's and Warning Letters.

The course will go through what typically goes on during an FDA Inspection and will then cover how to prepare for, host and follow up to a regulatory inspection. It will emphasize and focus on the critical and vital elements that you should do or not do during the inspection. Typically, FDA inspections can be highly structured and there are procedures that are to be followed as you prepare for state of readiness. It is important for anyone who might be involved in the inspection to be aware of these procedures, including all employees and personnel to ensure there are no surprises.

The course will also provide information for inspections conducted by international agencies as well as non- FDA agencies, including self-inspections for manufacturing and the famous FDA Mock Inspection or Mock Audit. It will explain how to prepare for an inspection, how to handle a scheduled or non-scheduled inspection, what to expect during an inspection and what follow up to expect after an inspection.
