This tutorial will review and discuss the legal, regulatory, and practical challenges of (1) FDA enforcement priorities for 2013 and beyond (e.g., application integrity policy and GMP/GCP requirements); (2) FDA administrative enforcement weapons and how the Agency uses them (e.g., inspections, warning letters, publicity, recalls, and investigator disqualification proceedings); and (3) the civil and criminal penalties for violations (e.g., seizure, injunction and criminal prosecution). Included in our focus will be FDA's renewed commitment to enforcement as articulated in an August 2009 speech by Commissioner Margaret Hamburg. We also will address how to handle an FDA enforcement action should you face one, particularly in the wake of an inspection or Warning Letter, and the impact of the new initiatives related to responding to 483s and Warning Letters implemented in 2009 following Commissioner Hamburg's pledge to boost enforcement. These interactive discussions will focus on how FDA operates and makes decisions and how to respond effectively, using tactics ranging from negotiation to, when appropriate, litigation.
