Supplier Quality Audits:
Supplier audits verify your suppliers follow industry standards and quality regulations set by organizations such as the FDA, EMA, and ISO as well as your own internal standards.
During supplier audits, PSC auditors focus most of the quality audit time to observe the “on the floor” operation at the vendor site in addition to assessing the quality systems and records to assure that the materials produced are made in compliance and to determine if the vendor operates in a “state of control”.
Types of audits:
- Quality Systems Audit
- ISO 9001 Quality Audits
- Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) Audit
- Risk Assessment Audit
- Regulatory Audit

Internal audits evaluate the company’s control and compliance with federal regulations. These types of audits are a great way to identify gaps in the company’s processes and policies, which will allow you to close those gaps before a significant audit occurs. Gap analysis is a high-level view of controls and has a narrow focus. It identifies gaps between actual performance with the desired performance.
Risk assessment is more comprehensive, and the goal is to accurately identify and thoroughly assess potential risks. A risk assessment determines possible mishaps like their likelihood of occurrence and potential consequences of an occurrence.
PSC Biotech can help with oversight, investigations, gap assessments, and auditing for compliance with applicable regulations.

483 Warning Letter and CAPA Remediation
Quality audit means a systematic, independent examination of a manufacturer’s quality system that is performed at defined intervals and at sufficient frequency to determine whether both quality system activities and results of such activities comply with quality system procedures, that these procedures are implemented effectively, and that these procedures are suitable to achieve quality system objectives.
PSC Biotech can assist your company to be in full control and compliance with these regulatory requirements cost-effectively and sustainably. Our professional auditors have broad education, training, and extensive hands-on experience to perform the job and advise their subject of expertise.
We are adept in providing quality assurance remediation support to life science companies. The PSC Biotech auditing team will develop a quality management plan establishing a proactive and effective strategy to address two functions of CAPA: corrective action and preventative action. Your company’s CAPA process is an indicator of system-wide QMS compliance and needs to meet regulatory requirements such as FDA 21 CFR 820.100, ISO 13485:2016, and 21 CFR Part 211.
