During this webinar, FDA will provide an overview of what to expect after a compounding inspection. FDA will discuss the intent of an FDA Form 483, ‘Inspectional Observation,’ compounding inspection closeout meetings, post-inspection expectations and regulatory responses, and provide a few examples to help explain how best to respond to an FDA Form 483 observation after a compounding inspection.

If an FDA investigator observes potential violations of the Food Drug and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act and its implementing regulations during an inspection, then an FDA Form 483 is issued to the most responsible person at a firm at the conclusion of the inspection. The FDA Form 483 does not constitute a final agency determination and firms are encouraged to respond to the FDA Form 483 in writing with their corrective action plan with supporting documentation within 15 business days from the issuance of the FDA Form 483 and implement the corrective action plan expeditiously.
