Unpacking the FDA Clinical Investigator Inspection Process in order to Maximize the Probability of Successful Inspection Outcomes

Conducting clinical research in an FDA inspection-ready environment is crucial and is arguably the best predictor for a positive FDA inspection outcome. As such, understanding the FDA inspection process should motivate an investigator’s clinical research-related processes. Lastly, navigating the FDA inspection process from inception to complete resolution often relies on a savvy understanding of how to best respond whenever 483-worthy findings are noted. 309

Source Documentation: Common Pitfalls and Site Monitoring Visit Findings

Source documentation issues is one of the most common findings cited by clinical site monitors. The source document should speak to the patient’s progression in the trial and how the data is initially obtained. Missing or inadequate source documentation jeopardizes the patient’s safety and eligibility, and the accuracy and reliability of the data. To avoid common pitfalls and cited monitoring findings, source documentation should be clearly defined and agreed upon by the site PI, research staff, and sponsor/CRO prior to trial initiation. 311
