Guidance for Industry: Exempt Infant Formula Production April 2016

Final
Docket Number:
FDA-2014-D-0044
Issued by:
Guidance Issuing Office
Office of Nutrition and Food Labeling

Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs), Quality Control Procedures, Conduct of Audits, and Records and Reports

This guidance is intended to convey to industry the current thinking of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) about the manufacturing of exempt infant formulas in relation to the requirements for current good manufacturing practices (CGMPs), quality control procedures, conduct of audits, and records and reports for nonexempt infant formulas in 21 CFR part 106.

FDA’s guidance documents, including this guidance, do not establish legally enforceable responsibilities. Instead, guidances describe our current thinking on a topic and should be viewed only as recommendations, unless specific regulatory or statutory requirements are cited. The use of the word should in our guidances means that something is suggested or recommended, but not required.
