WARNING LETTER Swabplus, L.P. MARCS-CMS 584803 — OCTOBER 31, 2019

4. Your firm failed to exercise appropriate controls over computer or related systems to assure that only authorized personnel institute changes in master production and control records, or other records (21 CFR 211.68(b)).
Your firm failed to have adequate controls in place for your High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) systems. For example, you did not establish unique user names for each analyst. Additionally, you did not properly maintain backup copies of your original data from your laboratory equipment.
In your response, you stated that your systems were “legacy equipment” incapable of an appropriate backup. Your response is inadequate because your firm lacked a comprehensive assessment and retrospective review of all data generated from all computerized laboratory systems used in CGMP operations...

Batch Release without Determination of Identity and Strength and other GMP violations - A Look at FDA's Warning Letters over the Last Months

When analysing the Warning Letters sent to manufacturers of finished medicinal products worldwide in the last fiscal year (from October 2018 to September 2019), it is first of all the sheer amount that surprises: with a total of 81 Warning Letters, this is the highest number over a five-year period (the Warning Letters addressed to Compounders or Compounding Pharmacies are not included in this analysis). In contrast, the number of Warning Letters to API manufacturers has fallen to the level of 5 years before after a peak value in fiscal year 2017.

WARNING LETTER Bingbing Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd MARCS-CMS 584327 — OCTOBER 03, 2019

1.    Your firm failed to maintain written production, control, or distribution records specifically associated with a batch of a drug product for at least one year after the expiration date of the batch (21 CFR 211.180(a)).
You manufactured drugs at your Wuhan facility at Building (b)(4), No. 5, Kangda Street, Longyang Avenue, Hanyang District, Wuhan, and then transferred drug production to your Hubei facility and closed the Wuhan facility. Your firm failed to maintain manufacturing records, raw material and finished product testing records, retain samples, stability samples, and other CGMP records for your over-the-counter (OTC) (b)(4) drug products manufactured at your Wuhan facility. During the inspection at the Hubei facility, you stated that you lost CGMP manufacturing documentation and drug product samples during the transfer of your manufacturing facility from Wuhan to Hubei in May 2018...
4.    Your firm failed to maintain an adequate written record of each complaint (21 CFR 211.198(b)).
You firm failed to maintain a complete and accurate record of your complaint investigations. You opened investigations B-18002 and B-19001 in response to complaints of poor (b)(4) for batches manufactured in Wuhan. In these investigations you stated that you evaluated reserve samples and found no deficiencies. However, you had previously stated that all reserve samples were lost for batches manufactured at your Wuhan site and therefore reserve samples were not available for evaluation...
Data Integrity Remediation
Your quality system does not adequately ensure the accuracy and integrity of data to support the safety, effectiveness, and quality of the drugs you manufacture. See FDA’s guidance document Data Integrity and Compliance With Drug CGMP for guidance on establishing and following CGMP compliant data integrity practices at https://www.fda.gov/media/119570/download.
We strongly recommend that you retain a qualified consultant to assist in your remediation...

MHRA : Digital Health and Pharma 4.0

Posted by:

I’ve always had a keen interest in all things digital.  It probably started from when I bought my first computer in 1981 (albeit a 1K ZX81) whilst still at primary school.  My coding as child on that first machine did not get much better than
10     PRINT “Mark is Cool”
20     GOTO 10
but, it gave me a lifelong interest in technology...

WARNING LETTER Deb USA Inc. MARCS-CMS 570944 — JUNE 11, 2019

2. Your firm failed to establish laboratory controls that include scientifically sound and appropriate specifications, standards, sampling plans, and test procedures designed to assure that components, drug product containers, closures, in-process materials, labeling, and drug products conform to appropriate standards of identity, strength, quality, and purity (21 CFR 211.160(b)).
You did not have a procedure governing (b)(4) of High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) data. Additionally, your procedure did not require the same number of replicate HPLC injections ((b)(4)) to average and obtain a final result.
Our investigators identified several examples of your firm using (b)(4) and reporting passing results without adequate procedural controls or justification. For instance, Deb Pure Bac Foam Wash, lot 049559, initially failed during (b)(4) and upon (b)(4) yielded a passing result that was reported...
3. Your firm failed to establish and follow required laboratory control mechanisms (21 CFR 211.160(a)).
Laboratory personnel failed to follow written procedures for testing components and drug products. For example:
A. Your personnel failed to follow your procedure for enumeration of viable microorganisms. Your procedure requires (b)(4) and (b)(4) in (b)(4) on both (b)(4) and (b)(4). Your firm’s practice is to prepare (b)(4) on a (b)(4) plate and a (b)(4) plate for incubation.
B. Your procedure for enumeration of viable microorganisms required (b)(4) to be tested per (b)(4). However, your firm tested (b)(4) samples on the same (b)(4). In your response, you acknowledged testing (b)(4) samples on the same (b)(4).

Many microbiological testing activities were not contemporaneously documented. Significantly, our investigators found microbiological test plates in a laboratory trash can with no written record of their receipt, preparation, incubation, or reading. The test sheets for the undocumented plates were not completed and the employee stated he would record the results later from memory...
4. Your firm failed to ensure that laboratory records included complete data derived from all tests necessary to ensure compliance with established specifications and standards (21 CFR 211.194(a)).
Our inspection found instances in which your firm overwrote electronic testing data, discarded original testing records, and failed to report OOS laboratory test results. For example:

A. Your HPLC software configuration allows users to overwrite data resulting in original data being irretrievable. A torn-up HPLC chromatogram was discovered in a dumpster outside your facility on October 23, 2018. The chromatogram was for a stability testing assay result for Refresh PureBac Foam, lot 044262. The electronic file and method were manipulated yielding different results. The data manipulation was not captured in the audit trail and the passing result from a single injection was reported on the “OTC Stability Testing Results” form.
B. The OOS result from HPLC assay testing of Brady Clear, lot 8072, was not reported. Two injections of the sample were performed and yielded results of 0.516808% and 0.495222%. Your procedure requires the results to be averaged (specification of (b)(4)). However, rather than reporting the average assay result, which failed, you reported the initial single injection result that was (b)(4) to meet the specification (b)(4).
