We reviewed your August 17, 2018,response in detail and acknowledge receipt of your subsequent correspondence.

During our inspection, our investigatorobserved specific violations including, but not limited to, the following.

1.   Yourfirm failed to establish and follow an adequate written testing programdesigned to assess the stability characteristics of drug products and to useresults of stability testing to determine appropriate storage conditions andexpiration dates (21 CFR 211.166(a)).
你公司未建立和遵守足够的书面检验程序,用以评估药品的稳定性特性并使用稳定性测试结果来确定适当的存贮条件和有效期(21 CFR 211.166(a))。

Your stability program is inadequatebecause you failed to test your drug products, such as (b)(4), formicrobial attributes (e.g., total count and absence of objectionablemicroorganisms). Additionally, you did not use stability indicating assaymethods to determine active ingredient levels.

In your response, you indicated thatyour revised procedure for stability studies includes testing samples formicrobial growth. Your response is inadequate because it does not include yourrevised stability program protocol and microbial testing results from stabilitystudies. Your response also lacks a plan to perform microbiological examinationtesting of retain samples for all batches that remain within expiry.

In response to this letter, provide:

·     A comprehensive, independentassessment and corrective action and preventative action (CAPA) plan to ensurethe adequacy of your stability program. Your CAPA plan should include, but notbe limited to:
·     一份全面独立的评估和CAPA计划,确保你们稳定性计划的充分性。你们的CAPA应包括但不仅限于:
○    A remedied standard operatingprocedure (SOP) describing your stability program
○    一份描述你们稳定性计划的修订好的SOP
○    Stability indicating methods
○     稳定性指示性方法
○    Stability studies for each drugproduct in its container-closure system before distribution is permitted
○     每种药品在其允许销售前使用其容器密闭系统进行的稳定性研究
○    An ongoing program in whichrepresentative batches of each product are added each year to the program todetermine if the shelf-life claim remains valid
○     一份每年向计划中加入每种药品具有代表性批次以确定货架期申明是否保持有效的持续计划
○    Specific attributes to be testedat each station
○     每个时间点要检验的具体指标
·     A retrospective risk assessment ofthe stability of drug products on the U.S. market within expiry. Include yourCAPA plan, including testing your retain samples for both chemical andmicrobiological attributes, to ensure that these drug products will maintaintheir purported quality attributes throughout their expiry.
·     一份对销售至美国仍有效期内的药品的回顾性稳定性风险评估,包括你们的CAPA计划,包括你们留样的化学和微生物指标检验,以确保这些药品在有效期内保持其既定质量属性。

2.   Yourfirm's quality control unit did not review and approve written procedures forproduction and process control, including any changes to them, designed toensure that the drug products you manufacture have the identity, strength, quality,and/or purity they purport or are represented to possess (21 CFR211.100(a)).
你们公司的质量部门未审核和批准书面生产和工艺控制程序,包括所有对其进行的变更,以确保你们生产的药品具备其理应具备的鉴别、剂量、质量和/或纯度(21CFR 211.100(a)

A.) You failed to adequately validateyour drug product manufacturing processes. For example, you lacked thefollowing validation studies:

·     An adequate demonstration ofhomogeneity throughout a batch (e.g. lack of (b)(4) tank samples atspecific locations)
·     充分证明批内均匀性(例如,缺少指定位置的XX罐样品)
·     Adequate validation of your (b)(4)filling operations
·     对你们的XX灌装操作进行充分验证

The purpose of process validation is toestablish scientific evidence that a process is capable of consistentlydelivering quality product. Sampling and testing of in-process materials anddrug products requires control procedures to monitor output and validateperformance of manufacturing processes that may cause variability in drugproduct characteristics. Samples must be representative of the batch, provideappropriate statistical confidence, and meet predetermined specifications. SeeFDA’s guidance document Process Validation: General Principles and Practicesfor approaches that FDA considers appropriate elements of processvalidation at http://www.fda.gov/downloads/Drugs/.../Guidances/UCM070336.pdf.

In your response, you indicated youdeveloped a new procedure for homogeneity and uniformity testing. Your responsewas inadequate because it did not include a comprehensive review of yourprocess validation studies for all of your drug products.

In response to this letter, provide:

·     A comprehensive review of yourmanufacturing processes to determine your current state of control and toidentify any deficiencies in your validation studies. Include your CAPA plan orplans.
·     一份对你们生产工艺的全面审核,确定你们当前的受控状态,识别你们验证研究中的所有缺陷。包括你们的CAPA计划
·     A data-driven and scientificallysound validation program that identifies and controls all sources ofvariability such that your production and packaging processes will consistentlymeet appropriate manufacturing standards and parameters. This includes, but isnot limited to, evaluating suitability of equipment for its intended use,ensuring quality of input materials, and determining the capability andreliability of each manufacturing process step and control.
·     一份基于数据的科学合理的验证程序,识别并控制所有波动的来源,使得你们的生产和包装工艺能够始终符合适当的生产标准和参数。其中包括但不仅限于评估设备是否适合其既定用途,确保输入原料的质量,以及确定每个生产工艺步骤和控制的能力和可靠性。
·     A retrospective risk assessment ofdrug products on the U.S. market within expiry affected by inadequate processvalidation studies.
·     一份对受到工艺验证研究不充分影响的在美国市场仍在效期内的药品的回顾性风险评估

B.) You lacked adequate design andcontrol over your (b)(4) system. Our investigator observed that your (b)(4)system was not in constant circulation. Raw data related to chemicaltesting of the (b)(4) was unavailable during the inspection.Additionally, the sampling plan for your (b)(4) system was inadequate.It is essential that (b)(4) used in the manufacturing and equipmentcleaning meet chemical standards for (b)(4), USP, and appropriatemicrobial standards for your topical products.

In your response, you indicated thatyour SOP was revised to include sampling frequency. Your response is inadequatebecause it did not provide your revised procedure or evidence to support thesampling points of use, frequency, and results.

In response to this letter, provide:

·     A comprehensive, independentassessment of your (b)(4) system design, control, and maintenance.
·     一份对你们XX系统设施、控制和维护的独立全面评估
·     A comprehensive CAPA plan forremediating design, control, and maintenance of the (b)(4) system.
·     一份补救XX系统的设计、控制和维护的全面CAPA计划
·     Appropriate microbial action andalert limits to ensure this system produces (b)(4) suitable for theintended uses of each of your products.
·     适当的微生物行动限和警戒限,以确保该系统生产出XX合适于用于你们每个产品
·     Your (b)(4) systemvalidation report. Include the summary of improvements made to system design andthose made for ongoing control and maintenance.
·     你们的XX系统验证报告。包括对系统设计以及持续控制和维护所做的改进综述。
·     A detailed risk assessmentaddressing the potential effects of the (b)(4) system deficiencies onthe quality of all drug product batches in U.S. distribution within expiry. Ifdeficiencies are found, specify actions that you will take, such as customernotifications and product recalls.
·     一份详细的风险评估,说明XX系统缺陷对所有销至美国仍在效期内药品质量的潜在影响。如果发现缺陷,指明你们将采取的措施如通知客户和召回产品。

3.   Yourfirm failed to establish and follow adequate written procedures for cleaningand maintenance of equipment (21 CFR 211.67(b)).
你公司未建立和遵守足够的书面设备清洁和维护程序(21 CFR 211.67(b))。

Your cleaning validation program formanufacturing equipment is inadequate.

For example, your report APPL/CVPD/010,dated January 29, 2014, documented the cleaning validation of (b)(4) from(b)(4) tank APPL/PROD/02. The report concluded that (b)(4) washingswith water achieved a (b)(4) sample acceptance criteria of less than (b)(4)ppm for the (b)(4) tank. However, your report documented values thatindicated presence of chemicals greater than your acceptance criteria of (b)(4)ppm.
例如,你们报告APPL/CVPD/010,日期20140129,记录了XX罐APPL/PROD/02的清洁验证。报告结论说XX用水清洗,结果符合样品可接受标准NMT XX ppm。但是,你们的报告记录的值显示化学残留大于你们的可接受标准XX ppm。

Additionally, on February 2, 2018, afterproduction of (b)(4), your water sample collected from the (b)(4) tankfailed your chemical determination cleaning acceptance criteria. During theinspection, you indicated this failure was not investigated. Because this tankwas used to manufacture different drug products, there was a risk ofcross-contamination.

In your response, you indicated that anew system and process for cleaning the vessels will be validated. Yourresponse is inadequate because it did not include an assessment of otherequipment cleaning validations and lacked a timeframe for completion.

In response to this letter, provide:

·     A comprehensive plan to evaluatecleaning procedures, practices, and validation study results for each piece ofmanufacturing equipment used to manufacture more than one product
·     一份全面计划用于评估清洁程序、颗粒物,以及生产多个产品所用每台生产设备的验证研究结果
·     Scientific rationale for yourcleaning validation strategy to ensure your cleaning procedures are effective
·     清洁验证策略的科学合理性,确保你们的清洁程序有效
·     A summary of updates to yourcleaning validation protocol incorporating conditions identified as worst case.This should include, but not be limited to:
·     一份对你们清洁验证方案更新综述,包括识别为最差情形有条件。其中应包括但不仅限于:
○    Evaluating drugs of the highesttoxicity
○     评估最高毒性药品
○    Assessing drugs of the lowestsolubility in their cleaning solvents
○     评估在其清洁溶剂中溶解度最低的药品
○    Evaluating drugs withcharacteristics that make them difficult to clean
○     评估具有难清洁特性的药品
○    Swabbing equipment locations thatare most difficult to clean
○     最难清洁的设备位置擦拭
·     A summary of updated SOPs thatensure an appropriate program is in place for verification and validation ofcleaning procedures for new products, processes, and equipment
·     一份更新SOP综述,确保新产品、工艺和设备具备适当的清洁程序确认和验证程序
·     A retrospective risk assessment ofdrug products in the U.S. market within expiry affected by your inadequatecleaning program
·     一份受清洁程序不充分影响的美国市场仍在效期内的回顾风险评估

FDA's regulations regarding cleaning validation are now relatively old. A GUIDE TO INSPECTIONS VALIDATION OF CLEANING PROCESSES dates back to the early 90s. In this context, Warning Letters show the "current thinking" of the FDA.

An example of this is a current Warning Letter from Anicare. What has been criticised?

With reference to 21 CFR 211.67 (b), the FDA criticised that the cleaning validation report confirmed that the acceptance criteria for the residues had been met, although there were values that exceeded the limit. In addition, an exceeded limit was found in the routine production, which has not been investigated. The limit excess was identified by the FDA as critical with regard to cross-contamination for the corresponding tank.
参考21 CFR 211.67 (b),FDA批评,清洁验证报告证实,残留物已经达到可接受标准,尽管有些值超过了限度。另外,在常规生产中发现超标,未进行调查。FDA确定了该限量超标,考虑到对应反应罐的交叉污染,这是关键的。

Anicare replied that they would validate a new cleaning procedure.

This simple answer was not enough for the FDA. The FDA expects a broader consideration, also with regard to other cleaning validation processes and a timetable for the completion of cleaning validation runs. It is explicitly required to provide:
  • A plan showing how the cleaning processes, practices and validation study   results are evaluated for each piece of multipurpose manufacturing equipment.
  • A scientific rationale for the cleaning validation strategy that shows that the cleaning processes are effective.
  • A summary about updating the cleaning validation protocol with - at least   - the worst case scenarios:
    - Evaluation of the medicinal products with   the highest toxicity
    - Evaluation of medicinal products with regard to the lowest solubility in their cleaning agents
    - Evaluation of the   characteristics of the medicinal products that are difficult to clean
    -  Swab sampling points of the locations that are most difficult to clean.

The FDA also requires an overview of the updated SOPs to ensure that an appropriate programme is in place to verify and validate cleaning processes for new products, processes and equipment.

Retrospectively, the company should provide the FDA with a risk assessment of the medicinal products affected by the inadequate cleaning programme and still on the US market within the expiration date.

Regardless of the deficits in cleaning validation, insufficient process validation with regard to homogeneity within a batch was also criticised. As a corrective measure, the FDA requires a data-based, scientifically founded validation programme that identifies the sources of variability and also demonstrates their control. This applies to both manufacturing and packaging processes. This includes demonstrating the suitability of equipment, the consistent quality of raw materials and the determination of capabilities and reliability of each manufacturing step.
