Jubilant HollisterStier (JHS) has been informed by the FDA that its pharmaceutical sterile manufacturing facility in Spokane, WA has been upgraded to the status of Voluntary Action Indicated (VAI). The Spokane site’s Establishment Inspection Report (EIR) indicates that inspections conducted in April 2014 and December 2014 have been successfully concluded. This upgrade by the FDA from Official Action Indicated (OAI) to VAI is indicative of the cGMP status at the facility since a warning letter was issued in 2013.
