ComplianceOnline

Good Clinical Practice (GCP) inspection by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can lead to the detection of problems with the conduct of your clinical trials. FDA requirements regarding GCP and related inspections have been around for decades. Despite this, GCP noncompliance is still a major reason for FDA rejection of clinical study data or other regulatory action. Often, simple proactive steps can be taken to strengthen your GCP program and help you survive these inspections. This interactive, 180-minute online course will provide you with the tools to safeguard against inspection deficiencies and satisfy regulatory agencies that your efforts are compliant. These steps need to be taken before, during, and after an FDA GCP Inspection. Undertesting the legal frameworks and reading between the lines are paramount to enable better understanding and consequently better inspection readiness, performance during these inspections and optimal handling of inspection outcome.
