ICQ’s Mike Gatta, Al Guarracino, and Victoria Hayes attended last night’s PDA meeting as sponsor representatives, staffing an information table during the networking reception. Due to the popularity of the topic, Regulatory Inspection Trends, the conference room at the Hilton in Woburn, MA was nearly full of attendees. The first speaker was Edmund Mrak of the FDA, who shared some of the most frequent types of 483 citations. He offered some insights into some very avoidable findings. During his presentation he fielded many questions from the audience on this engaging topic. Next to speak were David Sencabaugh and William Frisch, both from the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Pharmacy. These gentlemen shared updates about compounding pharmacies and the new practices that were put into place in the wake of the fungal meningitis fatalities traced to the New England Compounding Pharmacy. ICQ would like to thank everyone who stopped by and visited our table.
