New Inspection Models: Will Your Next Regulatory Audit Be On-Site, Virtual or Hybrid?
Perplexed by remote and hybrid audits? Will on-site inspections return? Among the things the pandemic upended are conventional good manufacturing process (GMP) inspections. And the FDA and other agencies are forging ahead to build new inspection models.
The lessons regulators are learning today will inform how they conduct inspections tomorrow. Whether it’s virtual, hybrid or on-site, New Inspection Models: Will Your Next Regulatory Audit Be On-Site, Virtual or Hybrid? will ensure your future inspections — in all forms — go well.
Will inspectors examine things remotely they would not on site? Does a regulatory document review carry the same weight as a traditional inspection? What are the implications for security of protected health information?
This management report prepares you for whatever the future brings. It explains what regulators expect to see and do in a remote audit (documents, records, staff interviews, virtual tours), how to prepare for new technical requirements and how communication differs. You’ll also gain insight into on-site inspections.
New Inspection Models will explain how to handle all kinds of inspections with ease.
Management report takeaways:
- How regulators will choose which manufacturers to inspect
- How often you can expect to be inspected in the post-pandemic era and whether there will be extra steps (reviews, meetings) between inspections
- Guidance from the FDA and the EMA on dealing with remote inspections
- Different types of audits and how to prepare for them
- Effective document and data integrity control
- How to view a virtual inspection from both the regulator’s and the manufacturer’s perspectives
In the pandemic, the FDA and other agencies are making the rules for GMP inspections as they go. New Inspection Models: Will Your Next Regulatory Audit Be On-Site, Virtual or Hybrid? provides everything you need to stay steps ahead now and going forward.
