FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) Launches Inspections Database
Yesterday, as part of the FDA Transparency Initiative, CDRH launched the ‘CDRH Inspections Database’. The database provides information about medical device inspections that were the responsibility of CDRH from 2008 to the present (approximately 25% of the medical device inspections conducted since 2008). The database contains information about the firms, types of devices and inspections, and links to warning letters (when available).
You can search the inspection database by various parameters, including company name, inspection type, product code, inspection classifaction, inspection action, and date. You can find the database here.
We encourage your feedback on the database and welcome your suggestions for additional information you would like to see. You can provide feedback on the FDA Web site.
