Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Quality Manuals are too often long documents that contain little more than a regurgitation of the standard requiring the manufacturer to have one. They end up being daunting to employees, confusing to everyone except those in Quality, difficult to maintain, and ultimately, a failure to meet the intent of the standard. In this webinar, attendees will learn to focus on the true intents and requirements for having a Quality Manual, and how to meet them efficiently. Imagine being able to create a fully compliant and effective Quality Manual in as little as 4 pages! What if it were possible to create a Quality Manual as a tri-fold brochure instead of a 3-inch thick binder?

  • Have you ever wondered why it takes 20, 40, or even more pages to meet just four requirements stated in ISO 13485?
  • Does anyone in your company ever read the Quality Manual other than when it first came out or when they’re required to do an annual acknowledgement?
  • More importantly, does anyone other than your Quality staff understand its content?
  • Is your Quality Manual designed to just meet the stated requirements rather than achieve their intents?
  • Is the content of your Quality Manual redundant with the content of your SOPs?
  • Does that redundant content differ because the SOPs were updated and the Quality Manual wasn’t?

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • How does a Quality Manual provide value; even if your standard no longer specifically requires one?
  • Common mistakes
  • What are the requirements and what do they actually mean?
  • Illustrations vs. words
  • Best practices beyond what’s required
  • Building a better process model diagram
  • Building a better documentation pyramid diagram
  • What not to include in the Quality Manual
