Read Frequently Asked Questions

This 90-minute webinar on device corrections and removals will clarify your obligations for corrections and removals under Part 806 of the FDA regulations.

Course "Device Corrections and Removals" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 1.5 RAC credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.

Why Should You Attend:

When your firm finds a problem with a device you shipped and fixes it, do you report it to the FDA?

If you send a letter to a customer that says, “We found a problem, but, not to worry, we will fix it for you!”, you may have invoked the Corrections and Removals process. Under Part 806 of the FDA regulations, you must report this event to FDA. Under certain circumstances, you may not need to report, but you must keep a record of your decision.

An FDA Inspection will check for Corrections and Removals since it is part of QSIT. Often Inspectors will check specific actions, since they will monitor your website and have copies of letters you sent to customers. If you send a letter that notifies your customers of a problem, it will almost certainly get to a competitor who will send a copy to FDA. If you didn’t report to FDA, the Inspector will ask for your records documenting the reason not to report. This webinar will clarify your obligations for corrections and Removal under Part 806.

Topic Background:

Often, device manufacturers think of FDA’s QSR as the regulation they must follow. Unfortunately, device manufacturers often forget about other parts of the regulations. One of the most commonly missed items is Reports of Corrections and Removals under Part 806.

Part 806 requires you to report to FDA, but it also has some exemptions. Often device makers, who are aware of the requirement, find it confusing to determine when an exemption applies. In addition, if an exemption applies, the device maker must keep records of the decision not to report.

FDA Inspectors check for these requirements, since it is part of the Quality System Inspection Technique. Increasingly, FDA issues Warning Letters to firms that don’t comply.
