“Combining science with regulatory knowledge for optimized systemic solutions.” ™ 

FDA Regulatory Compliance Advisors, Inc.

An FDA National Expert (NE) is the highest technical position an FDA Investigator could earn during his/her career. The need for specialized technical expertise and assistance in FDA becomes more evident as complex, novel and/or sensitive in nature inspections are increasingly adopted by FDA regulated industry. 

The NE provides technical assistance to other FDA Investigators during inspections and training. FDA benefits from the ability of the FDA National Expert to provide efficient and in-depth technical coverage. This translates to less chance for misinterpretation or erroneous FDA-483 observations, expediting center reviews as well as on-the-job training (OJT) for field staff.

Training performed by the FDA National Expert increases the knowledge of the field staff, allowing for the dissemination of specialized knowledge. This interaction allows for developmental growth of FDA field, Headquarter and Center staff further reinforcing succession plans of the agency.
