This purchasing control Webinar/ training will discuss how to use the tools of risk management in achieving safe and effective medical devices and reduce recalls due to failure of components, device or services supplied to device manufacturers.

Why Should You Attend:

Recent recalls of medical devices have included failures of components, devices, and services supplied to medical device manufacturers. The publication of a GHTF (Global Harmonization Task Force) guidance document for regulators of the medical device industry is also evidence of the growing concern by regulators of problems in this area.

We will also explore how to communicate risk management information throughout the development of the medical device and its manufacturing processes, both internal and external.
