- Failure to promptly correct violations and respond in writing within fifteen (15) working days may result in legal action by FDA without further notice, including seizure and/or injunction.
- Your response should outline the specific actions you are taking to address these violations and to prevent similar violations from occurring in the future.
- You should include in your response documentation and any other useful information that would assist the FDA in evaluating your corrections.
- If you cannot complete all corrections before you respond, you should explain the reason for your delay and state when you will correct any remaining violations.
FDA could recommend engaging a third-party consultant qualified to evaluate your operations to assist your firm in meeting CGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) requirements. Your use of a consultant does not relieve your firm’s obligation to comply with CGMP.
FDA may also advise the appropriate regulatory officials in the country from which you operate that it considers your product(s) listed to be adulterated and misbranded products that cannot be legally sold to consumers in the United States.
