FDA issues a Warning Letter to tell you that you do not comply with FDA legal requirements. You have 15 working days to tell FDA how you will bring yourself into compliance. This requires drafting a plan that will map out your future with the FDA. If you do not, you face the possible actions identified in the Warning Letter without further notice. The actions can be costly and cast a cloud on the firm’s reputation. The threat of action is quite real.

If you do not make a credible response in a timely manner, you will face a long and expensive road to regulatory recovery.
