Read Frequently Asked Questions

This Medical device quality audits training review the process used by FDA to perform inspections of medical device manufacturers and will provide advice for quality and regulatory personnel that required providing information to an FDA inspector.

FACT: The US FDA conducts inspections of medical device manufacturers to determine compliance with quality system and other regulations. FDA inspections are different from audits by Notified Bodies and other certification organizations. The FDA is a law enforcement organization and uses each inspection to gather evidence for enforcement actions. Your organization must be prepared to defend its position with the investigator, and be vigilant against inadvertently placing itself in a position where FDA will take an enforcement action.

This presentation will review the process used by FDA to perform inspections of medical device manufacturers. It will also review the types of inspections that may be conducted and the plan used to inspect a facility. In some cases the FDA will not notify a facility in advance of an inspection, the presentation will discuss those cases, providing tips on how a manufacturer should respond.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • How does the FDA determine what facilities to inspect.
  • How to respond to advance notification of inspection.
  • What to do when the inspector arrives if not notified of inspection, and if notified in advance.
  • Planning for an inspection from FDA.
  • Developing procedures for an FDA inspection.
  • What are the different types of inspections and how do you prepare.
  • What actions can FDA take as the result of an inspection? How does the manufacturer respond to the inspection report?
