Begin FDA Inspection Readiness Early Experts Say
Inspection readiness is more than a quick practice session before the FDA investigator arrives; preparation should begin long before an inspection is even announced, say regulatory experts who advise establishing standard operating procedures that will maintain a constant and thorough state of readiness.

John Taylor, president and principal of compliance and regulatory affairs at Greenleaf Health, says facilities’ SOPs for inspection management should contain clearly defined roles and responsibilities for staff before, during and after an inspection. And knowing these SOPs must be second nature given the stressful atmosphere of FDA inspections.
