Normally corrective actions are instigated in response to a customer complaint, abnormal levels if internal nonconformity, nonconformities identified during an internal audit or when foreign contamination was found during a tank cleaning.
The single item on the 483 cited the company for taking no corrective action after an investigation of a deviation found that a bag tie, closure button and packing material fragments were found during the cleaning of a tank. Although the company's report on the deviation went into detail "about how the foreign contaminants would not affect the product quality," Lilly did not "outline any corrective actions that should be undertaken to prevent" any future contamination, the investigator noted.
In its letter of response to the 483, General Manager Lawrence McShane noted the company would communicate the "results of the deviation investigation, corrective actions taken and the FDA investigator's comments directly to the personnel involved through a training session that will be clearly documented." Further, the company stated it would revise its SOP on deviations "to include a minimum requirement of personnel communication and/or retraining re·train

The investigator noted that among the issues he discussed with the facility's management team was "storage of raw materials, intermediates and finished APIs in the firm's T18 warehouse," which had no temperature or humidity controls Humidity control
Regulation of the degree of saturation (relative humidity) or quantity (absolute humidity) of water vapor in a mixture of air and water vapor. Humidity is commonly mistaken as a quality of air. . Although temperature and humidity had been monitored and some hold-time studies had been performed, Bizjak stated "that they should have data for the step five intermediate at accelerated conditions, since the T18 warehouse conditions can exceed the conditions that they currently have data for."
The close-out meeting also included discussion about the need for Lilly to document employee training taken as part of a corrective action, the EIR EIR n. popular acronym for environmental impact report, required by many states as part of the application to a county or city for approval of a land development or project. (See: environmental impact report) stated.
Two issues noted on a 483 following the previous year's inspection were noted to have been corrected, the investigator concluded.
