Frequently Asked Quality Control Questions (FAQs)

Is heavy metals testing still a requirement for Drug Product?
No. Heavy Metals testing has been replaced with USP <232> and <233> Elemental Impurities and ICH Q3D Elemental Impurities. Companies must comply with ICH Q3D and assess elemental impurities to develop risk mitigation for those elements that do not provide a therapeutic benefit.  An Elemental Impurities Risk Assessment can be used to evaluate all potential sources of elemental impurities and their contribution to drug product. Learn more at Elemental Impurities | FDA 
How is the reliability of raw materials used in cGMP manufacturing best achieved?
It is critical to control the raw materials used in the manufacturing process by qualifying the suppliers of the raw materials.  Without qualification, assurance in the safety, quality, identity, purity, and potency of the final product can be impacted.  However, it is often not necessary to perform full Certificate of Analysis testing for every raw material upon receipt. A risk assessment can be used to evaluate the required grade/purity of the material, the criticality of the raw material to the process, the applicable compendia, etc. to determine the appropriate level of raw material testing upon receipt as well as the frequency of requalification. 
Are in-use stability studies required for non-preserved products?
There is a regulatory expectation for non-preserved products that will be prepared, stored and punctured multiple times following release of the product to the clinic or hospital have an in-use stability study to support the use and storage of the product over a defined amount of time. In-use stability studies provide supporting data on the impact of sample manipulation, multiple punctures, storage temperatures, and duration of use for the product.  
What gap assessments are involved with Pre-Approval Inspections (PAIs)?
PAI readiness gap assessments include a review of and support with: Vendor, Raw Material, and Component Qualification; Stability Program Plans, Protocols, and Reports; QC Method Development, Qualification, and Validation protocols and reports ; and Elemental Impurities Risk Assessment.
