FDA Announces NIPP For Sterile Injectable Drugs



“This New Inspection Protocol Project (NIPP) uses standardized electronic inspection protocols to collect data in a structured manner for more consistent oversight of facilities and faster and more efficient analysis of our findings. The protocols also include additional questions related to quality culture observed in facilities. The new tool is being applied to our inspectional work related to sterile injectable drugs, which have been the subject of sterility problems and shortages in the past. The primary focus of this new tool is to ensure a more streamlined and consistent coverage and reporting of our inspectional activities.”

“These aseptic processing drug inspection protocols for sterile drugs are the first of what we plan to be a series of valuable new inspection protocols covering all dosage forms. As we integrate learnings from these pilots in our field activities, our goal is to have them ready for full implementation within the next two years. These modern tools are a key part of our efforts to protect the health and safety of U.S. patients.”
