FDA’s is authorized to inspect regulated facilities and point out problems. How a firm responds to the inspection and how it plans to correct the problems has a significant impact on how FDA treats the firm after an inspection. Firms usually do not know the key points that sway FDA’s evaluation and classification of an inspection. What you say and how you say it has a major impact. This information is fundamental to any FDA regulated firm.

FDA inspections look for noncompliance with applicable manufacturing regulations. During the inspection the FDA investigator makes a “list of observations” that gives examples of violations. The list is known as the “483.” Some observations are very serious and can easily lead to receiving a Warning Letter, which threatens legal action. Your response to a 483 plays a critical role in how the agency will evaluate the inspection.  A poorly written response or not responding at all will certainly lead to a Warning Letter and follow up action by FDA.
