FDA Compliant Warehouse and Distribution Practices
A warehouse can simply be defined as a planned space usually a large commercial building for handling and storage of goods. Distribution on the other hand is the process of making the goods available for consumption by business users and final consumers. Both warehousing and distribution practices are critical components of the supply chain management. Any non-compliance or disruption in either can immediate and long-term adverse impacts on the bottom-line or even existence of a company. Hence, maintaining safe and GMP compliant warehouse and distribution facilities and practices are critical for all manufacturers. While there are a few general guidelines from the FDA regarding supply chain management, FDA’s expectations from receipt, warehousing, and distribution practices are widely misunderstood by manufacturers leading to frequent findings of non-compliance in these aspects during FDA audits.
