Product ID: 701861
Training Level: Intermediate to Advanced

  • Duration: 90 Min
This 90-minute training will discuss the FDA's QSR requirements for a Device Master Record (DMR) and how you can use it to build your Device History Record (DHR). You will learn what to keep in each record and organize them to help you lower cost in the QMS and provide valuable information when you need to investigate a problem and take corrective action.

Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Have you ever been confused about what needs to be in your Device Master Record (DMR) and your Device History Record (DHR)? This webinar will help you understand the requirements and assemble a complaint DMR and use it to build your DHR.

The webinar will also help you understand some very important related documents. The Design History File (DHF) is part of the design project, and does not duplicate the DMR. The webinar will help you understand the difference. In addition, the Quality System Record (QSR) can be a valuable adjunct to the DMR. The speaker will advise you on when to put device information into the QSR.

The contents of the DHR are in 21 CFR §820.184, or so it seems. Unfortunately, there are additional DHR requirements spread throughout the regulation. For example, disposition of nonconforming material can impact the DHR as well as records (produced by designated individuals) of the primary labels. This webinar compiles these additional requirements and explains them.

Learning objectives:

  • State the four major records required in FDA’s QSR.
  • Describe the contents of the Design History File (DHF).
  • Explain the source of the Device Master Record (DMR).
  • Describe how the Device History Record (DHR) relates to the DMR.
  • State the required content of the Quality system Record (QSR).
  • Explain the difference between information if the DMR and the QSR.
  • Understand the concept of a “designated individual” and the qualifications.

Topic BackGround:

The FDA's QSR expects the manufacturer to maintain a series of documents that describe the design and production of the device. QSR allocated the information into four documents.

  • The Design History File (DHF) gives a history of device design. One of the design outputs is the Device Master Record (DMR).
  • The Device Master Record (DMR) contains all the information necessary manufacture, install, service, and maintain the device.
  • The Device History Record (DHR) has the objective evidence to support the device production history.
  • The Quality System Record (QSR) contains information that is not device specific.

The four sets of documents fit together in a structure that helps assure correct device manufacturing. The content of the documents and the allocation of information depends on your manufacturing system; you should tailor the approach to your company’s products and approaches.
