Growing a Compliance Program in Government Contracting

The Federal Government is a huge bureaucratic-type of organization, with a lot of moving parts, that serve different functions spread out around the world. Within this large structure, it has complex processes built upon numerous requirements that companies seeking to contract with the US Government must follow. To ensure that they are complying with the various contractual, regulatory and statutory requirements expected from government contractors, most, if not all large and mid-size government contractors devote personnel and resources to perform compliance functions to reduce the exposure to penalties and other consequences.

Differences Between API and Product Manufacturing - Points to Consider when Auditing

The development of the modern pharmaceutical industry through the 20th and 21st centuries has been accompanied, or in some case followed, by the development of controlling legislation and guidelines. The focus of this control has historically been greatest for pharmaceutical dosage forms. This is perhaps not unreasonable, these products are closest to the patient and are historically where most, and the most significant, problems have occurred.

FDA Compliant HPLC Qualification and Performance Testing

High Performance Liquid Chromatography is the most frequently used analytical tool for pharmaceutical and API testing laboratories. FDA and international agencies require HPLC equipment to be calibrated, qualified and tested to ensure accurate and reliable analytical results. Even though this is well known since long time, laboratories are unsure on what exactly should be tested initially and on an on-going basis.

GMP Perspectives on Working with Contracting Laboratories

When working with contract testing laboratories, clients must remember that the responsibility for compliance with the GMP or the GLP ultimately lies with the product sponsor. Even if the contract assignes the responsibility to the contract laboratory, the responsibility for assuring compliance lies with the client. Neither can the contract laboratory assume that the client has complied with their responsibilities.

Steven S Kuwahara

Auditing Analytical Laboratories for FDA Compliance

Auditing analytical laboratories can be complex because of the preparation that is often required. All of the GMP rules do not apply to the laboratory; while there may be additional requirements depending upon the type of testing that is being conducted. In many cases, the laboratory itself may not understand what regulations apply to the work that is being conducted.

Introduction to FDA Regulation of In Vitro Diagnostics

In vitro diagnostic devices, or IVDs, are assays designed to test body fluids for the presence of any substance of interest to researchers, clinicians, and healthcare providers. IVDs can be used to detect hormones or antibodies, viruses or expressed cancer genes, bacteria or bacterial resistance to antibiotics, and beyond. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has created a flexible, yet sometimes confusing, approach to IVD regulation.

Change Control - Key to Successful cGMP Compliance

There is a continuing pervasive public perception that the FDA has been ineffective in protecting the public. Recent news events in foods, drugs, and devices seem to support this perception. The "tougher" FDA is determined to change that perception. Industry must be prepared to adapt, and recognize that such adaptation will actually work to their long-term benefit. This webinar will discuss and evaluate the effects that this call for change has on a company and its change control policies and systems.

Robert Kunka

Developing an Efficient Relationship with FDA

Some pharmaceutical companies do not have the experience in the regulatory area which includes knowledge of the process, needs, and results necessary for a company to be productive at the regulatory agency. Just as a couple dances together, the pharmaceutical company "dances" with the regulatory agency. Neither of the partners wants to step on the feet of the other.

John E Lincoln

Device Changes, FDA Changes, and the 510(k)

The majority of medical devices are cleared for marketing in the U.S. by the FDA under the 510(k) process. The FDA holds companies responsible for filing new 510(k)s when one change is major enough to impact safety / effectiveness, or when a series of lesser changes finally reach the "tipping point".
