    Seminar Instructors Martina LaGrange and Shelly Maifarth are former FDA employees and currently working as the principals at FDA Compliance Group LLC.

    Ms. LaGrange began her 14 years of career with the FDA as a field investigator and retired as a Medical Device Specialist. She performed medical device, dietary supplement, pharmaceutical and clinical investigator inspections both domestically and internationally. She inspected some of the world's largest manufacturers, with 75% of inspections resulting in the issuance of a Warning Letter. Ms. Maifarth began her career with FDA as an investigator and microbiologist and then served as an FDA Compliance Officer for more than 22 years. As a senior Compliance Officer, Ms. Maifarth successfully completed numerous regulatory actions such as warning letters, seizures, injunctions, prosecutions, inspection warrants, license suspensions and revocations to bring firms and products into compliance.

    During the two day FDA inspections seminar, instructors will discuss why the FDA conducts inspections and the sanctions available to the FDA for those companies who choose not to comply with FDA requirements. They will also cover do's and don'ts during inspections, choosing your core inspection team and facilitators and how to prepare your subject matter experts (SMEs) to respond properly. This course will provide attendees an understanding on what to expect during the FDA inspections, including how to communicate with the investigators, how to run front and back rooms, and present documents and records. This two day interactive workshop includes the real life inspection scenarios/case studies and this is one of the most popular ComplianceOnline training sessions.

    The seminar will be valuable for any regulatory personnel in FDA regulated medical device, pharmaceutical, food and dietary and Med Tech industries who handles functions involving top and middle management, quality assurance/management, compliance management, manufacturing, laboratory and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).
