Who knows when the day will come that a product faces a recall? It could be tomorrow, next week or a year from now.

Sadly, many firms are complacent about recalls — and woefully unprepared.

Is the company recall plan up-to-date? Or is it an old one, in a dusty binder somewhere on a shelf — or buried deep in the SOPs archives?

When was the last time the recall plan was reviewed? Does it meet the FDA’s evolving standards for recalls? Has it ever been tested with a mock audit?

If the answer is "no" or "I don't know" to any of these questions — or if a company believes in the need to be proactive and prepared — plan to attend the FDAnews conference Drug and Device Recalls Boot Camp on April 29-30 in Bethesda, MD.

This is a must-attend event for those responsible for their organization's recall readiness. In two action-packed days of expert presentations and enlightened discussions, attendees will learn:

  • The most common and simple mistakes FDA finds in recall programs
  • The top 5 reasons internal recall committees fail — and how to fix them
  • How to put an internal recall committee through a “mock recall” to identify strengths and weaknesses — and tips on how to shore up the program
  • The specific kinds of information companies should supply the FDA to make a recall run more smoothly
  • How and why the company must measure and document the financial and other costs of a recall
  • Tips to help build procedures that will appropriately link a recall strategy to corrective and preventive action strategy
  • And much more

After two days of "total immersion" in recall readiness, attendees will return to your office with proven best practices and tools that will ensure a recall program will run smoothly. And, attendees will be ready to confidently communicate about the program with the FDA and stakeholders.
