The FDA is coming! Your colleagues are panicking because they know that inspections always bring out the worst in people. They’ve been running around like crazy trying to prepare for their visit making sure their workspaces are secure, the SOPs are readily available, that all outstanding training modules are completed, and also making sure to close out any of those pesky CAPAs that has been stuck open for 488 days. 🙂 But that doesn’t do us any good if we don’t take action now before it gets too late: we need to get those fires burning hot so that when inspectors come through looking for issues, there will be nothing left but ashes from all this panic-driven work. We can best support our expert teams by reminding them again how important their job really is. They don’t just put out fires; they are first and foremost quality control experts, which means knowing exactly what needs to be done and ensuring compliance with FDA regulations. With a little bit of focus and preparation, we can make sure that your teams are ready for anything the FDA throws at you.
So, the next time your office is in a frenzy of activity due to an impending FDA inspection, remember that we’re all on this team together. Let’s support each other by doing our jobs well and keeping things running smoothly–and most importantly, by staying cool under pressure. And if you need help getting fires burning hot before the inspectors arrive, don’t hesitate to reach out for assistance. We’re here to help reach us at Compliance Insight
