FDA Access to a Firm’s Audit Results
The agency’s policy relative to the review of quality audit results is stated in CPG 7151.02. This policy prohibits FDA access to a firm’s audit results. Under the QS/GMP, this prohibition extends to reviews of supplier audit reports and management reviews. However, the procedures and documents that show conformance with 21 CFR 820.50, Purchasing Controls, and 21 CFR 820.20(3)(c), Management Reviews, are subject to FDA inspection.
