Unless otherwise indicated, our workshops focus on the basics.  

For this we have sometimes been criticized.

However, the multimillion dollar fines, the countless GMP compliance audit  U.S.

FDA Form 483 observations, even the Justice Department actions against regulated 

companies have almost always been due to failure to adhere consistently 

to the basics. This is in spite of their employing highly trained / educated /

paid staff and consultants.  

The secrets to successful compliance lie not in exotic new ideas, but in 

consistently implementing straight forward regulatory systems that provide 

individual leeway while meeting US FDA requirements as they grow and change 

over time.
