Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Can ORA perform a surveillance inspection of a combination product at a firm participating in the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP)?
  2. How will MDSAP ensure that every RA has the same evaluation standards for the Auditing Organization?
  3. How do I find out more specific information on the documents, policies, and procedures used in the MDSAP?
  4. Can industry provide input into MDSAP documents or the program in general?
  5. What is the best way to determine what is expected of the Auditing Organizations with regard to multiple jurisdictions?
  6. Can Contract Research Organizations participate in MDSAP and What about Certified Quality Auditors?
  7. If an RA decides to change its GMP/QMS or Regulatory requirements, how will the changes be incorporated into MDSAP?
  8. Can an Auditing Organization contest an unfavorable recognition decision or a nonconformity and its grading?
  9. How do Auditing Organizations ensure that duplicate efforts are not performed during an audit of a manufacturer that sells in multiple jurisdictions?
  10. How are nonconformities that are identified during an MDSAP audit managed? What is the timeline for a manufacturer to respond to nonconformities?
  11. Where you mentioned outsourced processes are typically not audited via MDSAP, could we anticipate that there is a higher chance that the FDA could choose to perform an inspection of a contract manufacturer?
  12. Is the estimated durations what is recommended for internal audits as well as 3rd party?
  13. Would it be required to use the MDSAP grading of nonconformities when conducting the internal audit?
  14. Is a root cause analysis needed regardless of the finding grade?
  15. Can you please highlight country specific requirements?
  16. No. if there is a finding grade 5, understandably a root cause analysis is needed. What if it is a finding grade 1, not as severe?
  17. I understand the grading. Indirect not repeat without device on the market means 1 and it is typically not high risk.
  18. Where in the MDSAP documents is "repeat" defined? Is the assumption just the next time audited?
  19. Is "repeat" the second NC within the direct or indirect sections or the next time we are audited?
  20. Question came up during an internal audit - how to show compliance with Australian rule that design input must include Essential Principles when original product project was not thinking about Australian market. From what I heard you say, it seems that basic input is adherence to standards related to basic safety of device. Is this correct interpretation? Otherwise how does one remedy after the design phase when deciding to move into a new regulatory territory?
  21. Could that be a quality plan to review all design docs and fill gap?
  22. Do you grade and document a finding when there is already an open CAPA for it?
