Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are required according to FDA cGMP regulations for companies that are regulated by the Code of Federal Regulations such as Title 21 and Title 493. Yet, surprisingly, there  is no guidance on how to write, organize and maintain SOPs. Consequently, SOPs are frequently written in a way that makes compliance difficult or downright impossible. Worse, this often leads to many regulatory errors that first come to light during and FDA audit.

SOP mistakes are one of the most frequent reasons that companies get 483s during cGMP audits by FDA. Common 483 violations include:

  • Failing to follow SOPs
  • Using the SOPs for another organization
  • Lack of detail in SOPs
  • Failure to approve SOPs
