The most frequent category of FDA Form 483 inspection observation is design controls (i.e., 21 CFR 820.30). There are 10 different sections of the design controls requirement. Manufacturers that do not have design controls in place will frequently receive multiple observation findings during the same inspection–all related to design controls. The most common design control observations are:

  1. A procedure for design and development has not been established in accordance with 21 CFR 820.30a
  2. A procedure for design transfer has not been established in accordance with 21 CFR 820.30h
  3. A procedure for design changes has not been established in accordance with 21 CFR 820.30i
  4. A design history file (DHF) has not been established in accordance with 21 CFR 820.30j

If a manufacturer has no procedure for design controls, then the manufacturer could receive 4 different observations on FDA Form 483.

ISO 13485:2016 Requirements

On March 1, 2016 the 2016 version of ISO 13485 was released. The new version of the Standard now requires procedures for design transfer, design changes and design and development files in an effort to be harmonized further with US regulatory requirements.
