    FDA 21 CFR 211

    FDA 21 CFR 211 details current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) requirements of finished pharmaceuticals by the FDA.

    FDA 21 CFR 211 TECHNICAL CONSULTANTS

    FDA inspectors demand full compliance with GMP requirements as per 21 CFR 211. Anything less than complete adherence will cause the manufacturers the stamp of “adulterated” or “misbranded” in the eyes of the FDA.

     

    Compliance with the 21 CFR 211 guidelines for finished pharmaceuticals is necessary to ensure finished drug products meets the specification in terms of safety, quality, strength, and purity.

     

    Full compliance to 21 CFR 211 requirements is mandatory for FDA registered establishments shipping drugs to the United States. Anything less or partial compliance with the standard will be put under the banner of “adulterated” or “misbranded” drugs.
