Topic Background:

FDA has issued a number of recent 483 citations and Warning Letters for inadequate change control. FDA expects proposed changes to be thoroughly reviewed by appropriate subject matter experts, in order to assure that the changes do not result in negative outcomes. Changes must also be properly justified, assessed for risk, implemented, and documented. Furthermore, certain major changes (e.g. manufacturing, specifications) may require regulatory filings and/or prior regulatory approval. Ultimately, improper change control can lead to negative 483 findings, Warning Letters, sub-standard product, or product recall.

An effective change control system relies upon the combination of sound procedures and personnel who understand how to properly describe, assess, and implement changes. Just completing a change control form is not enough. All involved personnel must have subject matter expertise, critical thinking skills, and the ability to clearly document their actions within the change control system, or related systems. At the end of the day, it should be clearly understood what changed, why the change was made, what risks were identified and/or mitigated, how the change was implemented, and whether the change was effective.
