FDA Audit & Inspection Readiness

Preparing for an Audit

Preparation is essential for any audit or investigation, especially because of the escalating complexity and overlap of global quality regulations. Life Science companies that serve multiple national markets or rely on dispersed supply chains will commonly face compliance challenges from regulatory agencies including the US Food and Drug Administration and the European Commission, and international organizations such as the International Committee on Harmonisation and the International Standards Organisation and national governments. While all facilities within a regulated company should be audit-ready at any time, there are certain triggers that might warrant additional levels of preparedness.
