FDA Update: September inspection citations

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspects numerous facilities around the nation to ensure that they comply with current rules governing FDA-regulated products.

The aim of publishing companies’ inspection data is to encourage compliance with related laws and regulations and give the public a window into the agency’s enforcement activities, according to the FDA. The agency’s public database on inspections is not comprehensive, however, since some information is not published until a final enforcement ruling is formulated. 

Inspections carried out by states, as well as examinations of nonclinical laboratories and mammography facilities, are not included.
