Additionally, the FDA may take appropriate action, including ordering the company to cease receiving, labeling, holding and/or distributing any or all drug substances, in the event the defendants further violate the FD&C Act, its implementing regulations or the consent decree.
The consent decree sets a strict timetable and requirements for the firm to ensure it obtains compliance with current good manufacturing practice requirements under the Federal Food, Drug, & Cosmetics Act (FD&C Act) & requires ongoing compliance auditing and reporting to the FDA.
