The medical device industry is highly regulated due to the product risk to health. The US FDA as the leading regulator in the world requires medical device companies’ compliance to the 21 CFR Part 820, Quality System Regulation (QSR) which specifying current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) for medical devices. Medical device manufacturers selling their goods to US must be compliant from the start of production of the medical device, for high class devices even starting from the design stage. The FDA is checking 21 CFR Part 820 compliance with FDA inspections, whereby the timing and frequency of inspection can vary from 6-12 month after 510k approval up to 5 years after 510k approval and later every 3-5 years. The frequency and inspection decision depend on the criticality of the medical device and compliance history of the medical device/medical device manufacturer. This course will help medical device manufacturers to identify compliance gaps, to set up a sustaining FDA compliant Quality Management System and to prepare for FDA inspections.
