The observations related to “procedures followed for the annual quality standards record evaluation” and “cleaning and maintenance of equipment at appropriate intervals during manufacturing campaign” according to a Neuland Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) filing.
The firm said it “has already initiated corrective and preventive actions for the observations and is confident of satisfying the FDA within the stipulated time.”
The facility – known as Unit-1 - is situated at Bonthapally Village in Medak District. It houses seven active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) production lines and quality assurance & quality control (QA&QC) and Regulatory Affairs (RA) units.
