“Failure to Follow established SOPs” is the most common observation from regulatory bodies. Translated this means the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) put into place were not adequate for personnel to follow as well as record the information needed.
Poorly written procedures make it difficult for your employees to understand and consistently follow procedures.
