Vendor Qualification, Inspections and Mock Pre-approval Audits

Vendor Qualification, Inspections and Mock Pre-approval Audits


Proactive initial and routine evaluation of vendor cGMP compliance minimizes the risks of quality issues and supply chain disruptions. It also reduces the potential for health authority actions such as 483s, compliance observations, warning letters, market restrictions, consent decrees, etc. Preparing in advance for preapproval inspections demonstratively assists in the avoidance of surprises during the approval and launch process. We identify, remediate, and help to minimize the impact of compliance issues, which can cause costly stock out or delays in commercial approval.

DSI has audit expertise in every domain (e.g., nonclinical, clinical, CMC, other regulated activities). Whether you need to proactively review and refine operational processes or need to implement an audit program in response to prior regulatory contention, DSI is your partner.
