Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will explain FDA regulatory records requirements for medical devices and finished pharmaceuticals. It will cover statutory requirement, required content, format, purpose, retention, and structure for regulatory records for both medical devices and pharmaceuticals.

Why Should You Attend:

In the eyes of the FDA, manufacturing safe and effective products is not an option, nor are the records required to document those activities. Aside from the need to satisfy those regulatory requirements, having useful, clear, and complete chronicles of the processes followed could be of significant benefit to the organization in the event of a product liability action against it. Those records, if properly constructed, completed, maintained, and filed could eliminate additional regulatory actions, adverse publicity, and actual and punitive damages.

This webinar will provide attendees with detailed information on the required regulatory records for their industry and provide examples of both proven record design and best practices that will satisfy the FDA’s requirements for regulatory records. Dos and don’ts with respect to records will also be discussed during the session.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the FDA’s regulatory records requirements for medical devices and finished pharmaceuticals.
  • What are the format requirements for regulatory records?
  • What are the potential penalties for not maintaining regulatory records?

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

For each of the required regulatory records identified below, the session will address the statutory requirement, required content, format, purpose, retention, and structure. Examples will be provided that can be tailored for individual company use. Misnomers will be clarified and Good Documentation Practices will be explained.

Topic Background:

Manufacturers of both medical devices and finished pharmaceuticals are required to document their activities, including those of manufacturing and distribution. Those records enable the company to provide objective evidence of their adherence to their own policies and procedures, as well as to a myriad of regulatory requirements. In the United States, the FDA is not acquiescent on the types of records required, but they are flexible in how those records are structured and maintained. Knowing and understanding the various regulatory records, and constructing them in a value-added manner, will enable the organization to meet its obligations for documenting their activities.
