The FDA is cracking down on corporate executives, using the Park Doctrine and the FDAAA to impose civil penalties, jail time and industry bans.
This audio conference presentation focuses on the things your management team needs to be doing on a regular, consistent basis to 'ensure the suitability and effectiveness' of your company's quality system. Our speaker, who is president of an independent review organization (IRO) for a current consent decree, provides insight on what FDA investigators and district officers expect to see from your management team.
