Recipient: Medico Labs, Inc.
An inspection of your manufacturing facility was conducted from November 2 through November 16, 2006. During the inspection, our investigator documented deviations from the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) Regulations, Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 210 and 211 (21 CFR 210 and 211) for drug products manufactured and tested at this site. These deviations cause your drug products to be adulterated within the meaning of Section 501(a)(2)(B) of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (the Act) (21 U.S.C. section 351(a)(2)(B)), and are as follows:
6. Appropriate controls are not exercised over computers or related systems to assure that changes in analytical methods or other control records are instituted only by authorized personnel [21 CFR 211.68(b)]. Specifically,
a) There was a failure to validate the [redacted] software to assure that all data generated by the system was secure. This software runs the laboratory HPLC equipment, generates and stores data, and performs calculations during testing of raw materials, in-process materials, finished products, and stability samples.
b) User access levels for the [redacted] software were not established and documented. Currently, laboratory personnel use a common password to gain access to the system and there are no user access level restrictions for deleting or modifying data. Furthermore, your system does not have an audit trail to document changes.
