2.4 Personnel

Sampling inspector: person responsible for performing the sampling operations. The sampling inspector need not be a qualified analyst. However, everyone called upon to take samples should be trained in the practical aspects of sampling and should have sufficient knowledge of pharmaceutical substances to execute the work effectively and safely. A conscientious approach, with meticulous attention to detail and cleanliness, is essential. The sampling inspector must remain alert to any signs of contamination, deterioration or tampering. Any suspicious signs should be recorded in detail in the sampling record.
