Knowing what to do immediately after an FDA inspection can be just as difficult – and is just as critical – as knowing what to do before and during the inspection. Even when the inspection ends, there is still work to do. Failure to meet the investigator’s requirements can have devastating consequences. “The FDA Just Left – Now What?” webinar will give detailed insight into what to do after an FDA investigator has completed an inspection, issued a Form 483, discussed response requirements and left your facility.

MasterControl’s Walt Murray and Underwriters Laboratories’ Linda Chatwin will take an in-depth look at what steps to take at the conclusion of an inspection, including:

  • How to address major FDA findings
  • How to manage appropriate response types
  • How to apply CAPAs to the findings
  • Why to update the FDA on your progress

Murray has more than 25 years’ experience in quality and regulations and Chatwin has more than 30 years’ experience working with regulated medical products. Join them to learn what the FDA expects after an inspection.
