What are common distribution issues?
Improper labeling: FDA-regulated products must be labeled with information about the product, such as its claims, ingredients, expiration date, storage instructions, and etc. in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements. Improper labeling can make it difficult for consumers to use the product safely and effectively.
Lack of or insufficient quality management system: Failure to establish a comprehensive and appropriate Quality Management System (QMS) tailored to your specific product can result in significant repercussions during an FDA inspection. QMS is essential for all entities involved in the entire product lifecycle, from development to distribution--such as design and development, manufacturing, packaging and labeling, distribution, customer complaints, corrective and preventive action, post-surveillance activity and more. It is imperative to ensure that your company's QMS aligns with its unique characteristics to ensure compliance. Additionally, non-compliance at one facility can have adverse implications for other facilities within the organization. Hence, diligent adherence to QMS standards is paramount to mitigate potential consequences.
Contamination: FDA regulated-products can become contaminated during transportation or storage. This can happen due to a variety of factors, such as exposure to moisture, heat, or chemicals. Contamination can make the product unsafe to use.
Logistics challenges: FDA-regulated products may require special handling and transportation, which can add to the cost of distribution. Additionally, the FDA may have specific requirements for the distribution of these products, which can further complicate the process.
FDA regulation violations can result in warning letters, recalls, fines, and product seizures. Serious violations may lead to criminal prosecution, injunctions, and debarment. The FDA aims to protect public health and may take appropriate actions to ensure compliance with regulations for drugs, medical devices, food, cosmetics, and more. Consequences vary based on the severity and intent of the violation, aiming to safeguard consumers and maintain product safety.
