483 Response Information General: How do I submit my FDA-483 Response following my inspection?
E-mail your inspection-related correspondence to the email address listed below. Please include your company’s FEI number, if known, in the subject of the email, and on the cover letter or documentation. Hard copy responses are discouraged, but if that is the only way you can send a response, please use the address listed below. Thumb drive or compact disc (cd) may be sent to the address below.
We prefer e-mail correspondence due to efficiency, fiscal responsibility, expedited service to stakeholders and environmental awareness. The Division will acknowledge receipt of your e-mail (size limit 100 megabytes) to the email box for your firm's geographic location.
- Division 1: ORADevices1FirmResponse@fda.hhs.gov
- Division 2: ORADevices2FirmResponse@fda.hhs.gov
- Division 3: ORADevices3FirmResponse@fda.hhs.gov
- Foreign: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be sure that any attachments are readily labeled and/or identified for ease of review to include the FEI number. Documentation should be submitted as a single pdf file, with bookmarks to easily identify table of contents, memos, attachments, etc. If a single pdf file exceeds the 100MB size limit, please submit multiple pdf files, with bookmarks, as appropriate. Please do not provide multiple folders that contain individual files as this will delay the processing of your response. There is no need to provide a back-up hard copy of any correspondence sent via email or provided in thumb drive or cd format.
