PDA FDA - Interesting Manufacturer Statistics

At the recent international PDA/FDA meeting, some very interesting statistics were shared. Drug products are manufactured in over 130 countries. In those 130 countries, there are over 300,000 manufacturers. Those manufacturers work through 130,000 importers. It is no surprise that the FDA requires drug manufacturers to audit suppliers and assure that the plant shown is the plant that will manufacturer the drug product. The FDA wants to make sure that there are no "shadow plants" being operated out of CGMP compliance.
