Maumee, OH January 25, 2013: Hammill Manufacturing Company announced today that on December 7, 2012, they received an Establishment Inspection Report (EIR) from the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) which confirmed the results of their latest FDA Inspection - no observations were noted, and no FDA 483 Inspectional Observations were issued. This was Hammill’s second successful Quality Audit with the FDA in the last three years.
Back in 2008, the FDA issued a warning letter to Hammill outlining several observations relating to document traceability and control as well as, following CAPA procedures consistently. “The warning letter did not involve any Customer product; however, the findings showed that our Quality Systems were not up to par and that procedures were not consistently being followed. This was unacceptable to the FDA and frankly unacceptable to our company philosophy,” noted John Hammill, President.
Hammill Medical took the necessary steps to review, evaluate, and improve their quality system. “The renewed emphasis on quality systems and controls has paid off for our company and for our customers. The recent FDA investigation was conducted over an eight day period. We are excited that our quality systems continue to improve. The most recent investigation highlights the progress we have made . . . no observations noted and no FDA 483 Observations issued”, expressed John Hammill.
