What is FDA Readiness & Remediation

Inspection Readiness (IR) is a process of getting ready for an inspection by a regulatory authority (such as the FDA), which is conducting an official review of documents, facilities, records, and any other resources that are deemed by the government authority.

Every company is responsible for inspection readiness by providing training to employees and ensuring their understanding and application of policies, standards, and procedures.

FDA readiness involves managing risk—understanding the vulnerabilities and areas of improvement, anticipating how investigators will perceive them, and preparing your staff to respond.

An FDA 483 or Warning Letter often only addresses a small portion of the true deficiencies in the quality management system (QMS).

CIQA can help determine the actual depth and breadth of the QMS deficiencies via a comprehensive FDA Compliance GAP Assessment. The GAP Assessment includes performing baseline audits and developing a remediation plan to address all of the deficiencies and bring the Quality System or specific sub-section into compliance.
