The inspection at unit-I, the Cephalosporin facilities closed with 10 observations for the Cephalosporin API facilities and 8 observations for the Cephalosporin solid oral dosage form facility," said in regulatory filing.

As a company, Lupin has committed to an enhanced quality management system and compliance sustainability plan. The Lupin Mandideep site is already executing the plan, which also serves to address some of the concerns raised during this inspection, the company added.
