Would you know what to do if a regulatory body such as (FDA (CDER, CBER, CDRH, CVM), EMA, CFIA, PMA, etc.) or notified group showed up at your door? This two-day workshop provides you tools to prepare your organization for a regulatory inspection, and a chance to practice these skills in a safe and mentoring environment. We have all heard the adage “fail to plan, plan to fail,” and in no area is this more relevant than inspection readiness. This two-day, practical interactive workshop will prepare you to plan for inspections efficiently (without stressing you or your staff), accurately, and be able to execute them effectively by knowing what to expect and how to best respond.
