Hovione today announced that its API plant in Cork, Ireland has successfully passed a pre-approval inspection by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The inspection, carried out by the FDA Consumer Safety Officer, Ms. Britanny Terhar, lasted 5 days as initially planned, started on 21st July and concluded on the 25th. The inspection confirmed the site to be compliant with the principles and guidelines of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and no Form 483 observations were issued. At the closing meeting the inspector informed that she was satisfied with what she had seen and complimented Hovione on its GMP system, inspection organization and the knowledge of its team members.

On the outcome of the inspection, Luisa Paulo, Hovione's Compliance Director, said: "The pre-approval inspection was triggered by a client NDA filing, it also covered the manufacturing of a commercial NDA and a generic antibiotic, doxycycline.
