Does FDA allow some flexibility with respect to scheduling physics surveys?

Policy Guidance Help System logo

Yes. While the medical physics survey must be performed annually, FDA realizes that surveys cannot usually be scheduled exactly on the anniversary date of the previous survey. Therefore an occasional period of up to 14 months between surveys is acceptable. Facilities may choose, however, to have the physics surveys performed at higher frequencies (shorter intervals) during any annual cycle.
