Insights On FDA’s Warning Letter Close-Out Program

FDA notifies the firm in the form of a Warning Letter when the Agency finds that a firm has significantly violated FDA regulations (current Good Manufacturing Practice, cGMP).  The Warning Letter identifies the firm’s violations including, but not limited to, poor and inadequate manufacturing practices, problems with claims for what a product can do, or incorrect directions for use. The letter also makes clear that the company must correct the problem and provides directions and a timeframe for the firm to inform FDA of its plans for correction.

As part of FDA’s enforcement initiatives, FDA implemented a Warning Letter “Close-Out” Program, which applies to Warning Letters issued on or after September 1, 2009.

According to the Close-Out Program, FDA may issue a Warning Letter "Close-Out Letter" once the FDA has completed an evaluation of firm’s actions undertaken in response to a Warning Letter.

In this audio session, Dr. David Lim, Ph.D., RAC, ASQ-CQA will discuss about FDA’s Warning Letter Close-Out Program, including the thirty-two close-out cases. He will talk about practical, actionable, and sustainable guidance on how to prepare for a sustainable FDA inspection and how to manage the FDA inspection process including Dos and Don’ts before, during and after the inspection. In particular, David will present the FDA’s Warning Letter Close-Out Program and actions based on 32 recent cases.

This session will provide great opportunities to become familiar with the FDA inspection practices, warning letter close-out program, and the most common deficiencies observed during the FDA inspections of firms (devices and pharmaceuticals) for the past seven years.

The speaker will also share his PASS-IT recommendation/suggestions.
