Program Agenda:

  • 5:00pm – Registration & Dinner

  • 5:30pm – Educational Presentation and Discussion

Program Description: The FDA conducts clinical site inspections to ensure the protection of the rights, safety, and welfare of human research subjects involved in FDA-regulated clinical trials, to verify the accuracy and reliability of clinical trial data submitted to FDA in support of research or marketing applications, and to assess compliance with statutory requirements and FDA's regulations governing the conduct of clinical trials.
These inspections can occur for cause or as part of market approval application submission. Because an FDA inspection can occur with little to no warning, a study site needs to be inspection ready.

Upon completion of this Seminar, attendees should be able to:

  • Discuss audit readiness: preparing for a site inspection

  • Describe inspectional processes and Investigator responsibilities

  • Discuss approach to responding to verbal and written findings

Target Audience: 
Investigators, Clinical Research Staff and Administrators, Clinical Research Coordinators, Clinical Research Associates, Clinical Project Managers, Human Subject Protection Office personnel, Research Quality Assurance staff, and anyone working in clinical research.
