This webinar will discuss FDA's requirements for medical device supplier management and the controls you need to have in place to ensure compliance with quality. It will cover how to structure a supplier quality agreement and the tools and methods you need for evaluating and assessing suppliers.

Why Should You Attend:

Failure to adequately assess and control your supplier/subcontractor pool can result in dire consequences for an organization. Aside from the regulatory implications for failure to comply with FDA’s requirements, not assessing and monitoring your suppliers can result in product recalls, high levels of complaints, potential patient/user injuries and deaths, and expensive lawsuits.

Assessing and approving your suppliers before placing the first order with them will eliminate many headaches for a medical device manufacturer.
