Noncompliance with GxP regulations can result in significant repercussions for sponsors and their collaborators. This could include financial penalties and legal actions. If a sponsor fails to adhere to federal GxP regulations to a significant extent, endangering public safety, they may receive a warning letter from regulatory authorities. In response, the sponsor must submit a corrective plan, carry out the necessary actions, and gain approval from the FDA before proceeding with development.
In more severe cases of non-compliance, a sponsor's product may be subject to a recall if it poses risks due to adulteration, misbranding, or incorrect labelling. Additionally, the sponsor may face a consent decree if regulatory violations are not rectified, and the product presents a clear risk to the public. Companies under a consent decree are required to halt operations, address the identified issues, and pass verification audits before being allowed to resume their operations.
