On February 22, 2020, Biocon's Insulin Manufacturing Facility in Malaysia Completes US FDA (PAI) Inspection.
The company informed that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted a pre-approval inspection (PAI) of our subsidiary, Biocon Sdn. Bhd's Insulins manufacturing facility based in Malaysia, for Insulin Glargine, between Feb 10 and Feb 21, 2020.
At the conclusion of the inspection, the agency issued a Form 483 with 3 observations which we believe are procedural in nature.
"We will respond to the FDA with an appropriate Corrective and Preventive Action Plan (CAPA) and are confident of addressing these observations expeditiously.
