Ways of getting the PREDICT, ACE and the HTS right to smoothen shipping

In September 2014, the FDA deployed a new risk-based screening tool for imports called the Predictive Risk-based Evaluation for Dynamic Import Compliance Targeting (PREDICT). The main aim of PREDICT was bringing about improvement in screening and targeting of adulterated or misbranded goods or those that flout any of the FDA’s rules. The FDA seeks to bring this about by doing away with its legacy electronic system, OASIS’ admissibility screening function.

Understanding and applying ICH Q3A and Q3B

The ICH Q3A and Q3B are guidances on dealing with impurities in new drug products. These documents have been issued by the FDA and are updates of earlier versions on the same topic that were prepared by the ICH, which this FDA guideline complements.

Another 12 States are in the process of implementing their laws.

Although credit card regulations have traditionally opposed surcharging; companies have been circumventing merchant rules to ensure that credit card surcharge continues to be made. Even…
