Preparing for Foreign FDA Inspections

August 14, 2018, 1:00 PM EST


Have you ever wondered why your foreign suppliers: API, intermediates, food ingredients, etc. are suddenly in trouble with regulatory authorities? Did they just go astray or is your auditing program not performing as designed? Actually, there are several things at play. EAS Independent Consultant, Peter Saxon, will shed some light on reasons FDA inspections can “go south” as well as provide insight on how disappointing results can be managed. Saxon has personally attended 90 FDA inspections of foreign facilities and another 15 inspections by other regulatory agencies (TGA, WHO, EDQM). His insights will provide an opportunity for companies to consider improvements to their internal audit structure to help minimize regulatory risks. Join us August 14, 2018 at 1:00pm Eastern for a free webinar on Preparing for Foreign FDA Inspections where you will learn where most regulatory problems are found by the FDA, how OAI (Other Action Indicated) results are categorized by the FDA and the ensuing consequences and what you can do to avoid these disappointing results.
