Guide to International Inspections and Travel


The Guide to International Inspections and Travel provides FDA personnel with standard operational, inspectional, and investigational procedures when conducting international inspections. It provides instructions and references to assist investigators and analysts who conduct international inspections. It contains information regarding authorities, objectives, responsibilities, policies, and guides applicable to inspectional operations, administrative procedures, and the basic guidance necessary for FDA personnel who travel to foreign countries.

This is an up-date of the July 1999 revision. The entire document has been reorganized from seven to four chapters and the entire Guide including the exhibits is in WORD format.
