  • 1.  Complete Access to FDA 483s and EIRs

    Posted 03-31-2022 09:21

    Hi Everyone,

    We're looking for a subscription product which would provide complete access to FDA 483s and EIRs, including from the most current inspections, across regulated products (e.g., drugs, devices, biologics, vet meds, and tobacco).

    And we need it for more than drugs and biologics….. for firms, and 483s and EIRs from specific inspections.

    Thank you for any suggestions!

    Hi Betty:

    I have used the following to search for 483s and EIRs.  Access all depends on if these organizations acquired them from FOIA, so one vendor may have it, but another doesn't.  If you use FDA's FOIA, be prepare to wait years (yes, years!) to get documents.

     Hi Betty. FOI Services can do one-off requests, but we do not have a subscription service. Redica Systems does have a subscription. Even if they don't have the EIR/483, they usually have some info about the inspection that might be helpful.

    483s are usually pretty fast & easy to get (a couple weeks to 3 or 4 months, depending on which FDA office is handling the request). EIRs, on the other hand, take much longer. The FDA can't send them until after the inspection has been completely closed out, so they recommend waiting 6 months to a year after the date of the inspection to request them (if you request an EIR before the inspection is closed out, you will just receive a No Records letter). Some offices will put EIR requests in the fast track and will fill them in about 3-4 months or less, but some, like Center for Devices, will route them to the complex queue, which has an 18-24 month wait time.

    Also, FDA deletes their inspection records after a certain amount of time (I believe it is 15 years for NAI and 30 years for VAI/OAI, though some centers follow this more stringently than others), so if you ever need something really old check with me, as we have a lot of EIRs and 483s from the 80's and 90's that FDA no longer has.

    Hey Betty!

    Have you looked into Govzilla from Redica Systems? 2 of my clients have it and appreciate its value Redica/Govzilla brings to the table. Also Redica partners with FOI Services too!

    Hope that helps!

    Stay safe & Cheers,

    Chrissy
