We report our experience with GCP inspection by FDA. Prior to the inspection, preparations were made by conducting a preliminary consultation with the client and a mock inspection. The inspection by FDA was conducted by one inspector for a duration of 8 days. The inspection revealed no problem. Compared with the GCP inspection by EMA that we received previously, the GCP inspection by FDA involved the same procedures of confirming the documents related to the clinical trial, including all the primary outcomes and adverse events. The two inspections differed in the number of inspectors and the inspection schedule. Based on the experience with the FDA and EMA inspections, construction of quality control system in medical institutions is considered necessary.
