Don’t let a common misunderstanding get you into trouble! There is more to the US Medical Device Regulations than Part 820.

Companies that don’t understand will face regulatory scrutiny and receive FDA Form 483s and Warning Letters. Recently a device manufacturer got a Warning Letter relating to updates to shipped devices, which said, “The Quality Manager stated he was unaware of the corrections and removal reporting and recordkeeping requirements.”

  • Cover more than just the Quality Management System
  • Provide an overview of regulations and how they fit together
  • Explain Unique Device Identification (UDI) in detail, covering the issues device manufacturers will face as well as timeline for implementation
  • Help attendees understand the four major elements of the US regulatory structure: laws, regulations, guidance, and consensus standards

Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium

Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium

Birch Aquarium is north of San Diego in La Jolla. It's not as big as some of the other aquariums in California or as flashy as the big sea-themed park down the road, but instead just right, filled with interesting exhibits and home to leafy sea dragons like the one above, creatures so improbably they look more like something from a children's book than from the ocean.

Legoland

Legoland

Legoland theme park takes its inspiration from Lego toys, those cute little bricks that snap together to build all kinds of fun things. It's one of several Legolands worldwide.

San Diego Zoo Safari Park

San Diego Zoo Safari Park

The San Diego Zoo's sister park offers a different kind of animal experience. Its name (Safari Park) is the clue and it indeed offers a more safari-like experience. Lots of large animals live in the same big, open areas here - predators kept away from prey, but otherwise much as they would in their natural habitat.

Coronado Island

Coronado Island

Coronado isn't really an island but a peninsula - a fact that doesn't get in the way of the name most people use for it. Whatever you call it, it's on a slender strip of land between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, barely a few blocks wide. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, with a beach that's been named among the best in the country, a classic hotel and a compact, lively little downtown. Coronado's laid-back temperament makes a nice break from the busier parts of San Diego across the water.

Balboa Park

Balboa Park

Originally built for temporary use during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, Balboa Park boasts buildings beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, especially if you're a photographer. They're surrounded by trees, lawns and fountains, but that's only the beginning.
