ABC Announces Completion of FDA GMP Inspection

March 6, 2015
By Business Wire News


ABC Laboratories announced today that a GMP facility inspection conducted by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) at both Columbia facilities was completed Friday, March 6. The general GMP facilities inspection included ABC’s Synthesis operations at ABC Lane as well as its Discovery Ridge location where all other GMP pharmaceutical analytical services are performed. At the conclusion of the 5-day inspection, no FDA Form 483 was issued, and no verbal observations were issued. This inspection follows last week’s 4-day GLP inspection from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which also concluded with no observations.

“Regulatory inspections provide a great opportunity for our organization to demonstrate the rigor with which we address regulatory compliance every hour of every day,” said John D. Bucksath, ABC President & CEO. “I think it is uncommon for ABC or any laboratory to be inspected by both agencies back-to-back, but I was confident that ABC’s quality systems and processes would stand up to regulatory scrutiny. I am very proud of our team.”
