Why 'FD&C act section number' and 'section number' in the title of the act are different?

#1
Hi, all

I recently am trying to learn and search the medical devices regulation in the United States.

When I browsed the FDA website, I found out the difference between the 'FD&C act section number' and 'the section number in the title.'

For example, the FD&C act section number of the title 'Sec. 360 - Registration of produces of drugs or devices' is 'Sec. 510', not 'Sec. 360'

It confuses me, although I guess that this is because of the amendment of a law.

Is there any clear reason for this difference?

Many thanks for your opinion!
