U.S. FDA Warning Letters and recent high-profile recalls indicate major cGMP, process, verification and validation deficiencies in many companies.
A major failing is the lack of proper controls on the production process. The U.S. FDA's Production and Process Controls (P&PC, 21 CFR 820.70) require that production processes by controlled and monitored to ensure product conforms to specifications. Lean six-sigma principles have made "process mapping" a key element in identifying the major inputs, processes, and outputs acting upon a product. The FDA's HACCP (Hazard Awareness of Critical Control Points) is a complementary methodology to identifying, controlling and monitoring those "critical few" steps in the production process that effect the quality, reliability and safety/efficacy of the resulting product.
