FDA Form 483

  • Overview
  • Why Work With NSF?

An FDA Form 483 is issued to firm management at the conclusion of an inspection when an investigator has observed any conditions that may constitute violations of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act and applicable regulations and requirements. It is important that companies take 483 observations seriously and respond to them in an appropriate and timely manner.

Responses to 483s need to be carefully crafted to reflect a firm’s understanding and commitment to remedy the objectionable observations in a holistic manner that focuses on the entire system rather than on the specific observation. The 483 is not inclusive of all objectionable conditions, but reflects only what was noted during that  particular inspection. Companies are therefore encouraged to take the opportunity to assess their quality system as a whole and address any gaps present beyond those noted on the 483.

NSF Pharma Biotech experts have been part of the regulatory authority and industry for decades. They can offer unique insights into the 483 observations and help your company draft communication to the FDA and take the necessary corrective actions to remediate objectionable conditions.
