Developing a Pre-Inspection Plan

A stepwise, sequential plan should be developed by management to establish pre-inspection planning and continuous compliant work practices. These steps can be shared by administration and staff members, as appropriate.
This plan may include but is not limited to the following:
  1. Staff review of all standards, regulations, checklists, self-assessments, and other guidance and preparatory tools.
  2. Review and confirmation of file contents to include personnel files, proficiency testing records, policy and procedure manuals, instrument records, and others required by the inspecting agency.
  3. Verification of management review and signatures of appropriate documents and manuals at appropriate intervals.
  4. Mock Survey for verification of compliance with requirements and processes at all times.
  5. Complete staff participation in the post-inspection organization of required changes and adjustments, submission of a plan of correction (POC), and institution and consistent adherence to the submitted plan of correction.
