Issues - II
Substandard materials deliberately purchased
Technical staff not involved in purchasing
Inability to re-export substandard materials
Owner insists on selling rejects
No commitment to training
Imagine in a company you are inspecting:
Substandard materials are purchased because they are cheap.
The technical staff are not involved in the purchasing decisions so inappropriate materials are bought. If material is imported at great cost and then rejected, it can be very difficult to re-export that material for replacement or exchange owing to currency regulations.
The owner of the company insists on taking inappropriate decisions about the quality of products that are to be sold.
Is there corruption concerning product quality? What do you do if you are offered an inducement not to report GMP deficiencies?
Because training costs money, the owner is not prepared to make a commitment to training that is needed.
