How to Respond to (and Avoid) FDA Form 483 Observations for Temperature, Humidity and Other Controlled EnvironmentsAugust 26, 2010 7:57 am | by Ken Appel White Papers
No cGMP manufacturer wants to receive a Form 483 letter (“Notice of Inspectional Observations”). In such stringently controlled industries as pharmaceutical/biotechnical/medical device development, manufacturing and warehousing, receiving a list of deficiencies can feel like a heavy blow to your quality system.
Evolving end-user expectations for differentiated software functionality, sustained time-to-market, and cost pressures continue to fuel new software development within embedded devices. Time-to-market and cost considerations will continue to drive embedded systems manufacturers to utilize international engineering resources and legacy code assets whenever efficient and economical.
One of the most challenging assignments for a scientist or engineer in a cutting edge technical field is working effectively with a patent attorney. The world of the scientist or engineer is quantitative and precise.
