Med Device Form 483s: What You Need to Know
Compliance protocol in the medical device manufacturing industry isn’t just extensive and complex — it’s also constantly changing and evolving. Even the most efficiently run facility can find itself trying to keep pace with new and updated regulations or struggling to ensure nothing gets overlooked in the race to put medical devices in the hands of consumers.
Unfortunately, errors and missteps do happen — and when they do, regulatory inspectors often log and record them using Form 483s. Issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, these forms outline:
- Specific findings
- Plan of action for resolving issues
- Assigned deadline for necessary changes
Most importantly, Form 483s details potential ramifications for any medical device manufacturers not making the amendments in the designated time frame.
