FDA Inspections Lawyers - Federal Lawyers

Inspections of regulated facilities by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are performed to determine their compliance with laws and regulations pertaining to their operation.

Violations can cause a company to be made criminally liable for their action or inaction. They could also face disbarment, administrative penalties involving losing their profits, fines and more.

Regulatory inspections, as well as compliance audits are conducted by the FDA’s Office of Regulatory Affairs. The Department of Justice (DOJ), as well as the Health and Humans Services (HHS), also conduct investigations on behalf of the FDA. They focus on possible issues of harm involving patients.

Deficiencies
When a person or organization associated with the healthcare industry is contacted by the OCI or the FDA Office of Regulatory Affairs with a notice of inspection deficiencies, it needs to be carefully reviewed. Legal experts will know what actions are necessary when responding to all deficiencies listed. An innocent mistake made when providing a response could cause serious future problems.

It is possible a company could be required to appear before a formal or informal administrative hearing. The nature of any possible enforcement will be determined by the type of violation. It could involve something as serious as criminal prosecution or simply a letter of notification requesting a correction. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney will know the best way to handle the FDA’s accusation of deficiencies. They can help in clearing noncompliance issues, defend against complaints trying to obtain civil monetary penalties, other forms of administrative hearings and more.
