Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are a critical ingredient in an effective and efficient Quality Management System. SOPs are typically one of the first things an investigator asks for in an inspection. Well-written SOPs send a message to the FDA and Notified Bodies (NBs) that your QMS is complete, accurate, and followed. More importantly, well-written SOPs ensure that your personnel can consistently and accurately follow your processes resulting in correct outcomes and quality work.
