Importance of Audit in Pharmaceutical Industry

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9000 requirements do not have the same status of “the law” in the U.S. as do requirements listed in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Because 21 CFR 210 and 211 have legal status, the U.S. Justice Department has extensive powers to ensure compliance. For example, product in the marketplace can be seized, fines can be levied, and personal liability can be assigned. So, management must understand that auditing must be taken seriously, and the requirements listed are just that – requirements. While audits are the common place in the pharmaceutical industry, the preparedness for those events varies. The companies that develop a risk-based approach to audits are able to remain competitive while meeting quality and government compliance standards on a regular basis. Conversely, the companies that have not implemented strong processes are putting themselves at risk for non-compliance. According to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, “Registered domestic drug establishments shall be inspected by the FDA at least once every two years.” Under some conditions the inspections may be even more frequent, As regulations become more stringent, regulatory authorities are likely to step up audits which is even more reason for companies to be prepared.
