Why Should You Attend:
Ineffective or lack of proper Complaint Handing is cited as one of the top violations in a 483 issued at time of inspection by FDA. Manufacturers of any class of medical devices are NEVER exempted from the Quality System regulation for complaint requirements (820.198). Medical Device firms and Designated Agents for foreign firms don’t understand the entire realm of the complaint process. This webinar will present FDAs current Medical Device Complaint Handling Procedures and how to review and process them for next steps in post-market evaluations. You will come away with a broad understanding of regulatory steps to track and trend complaint process, common mistakes and potential consequences of non-compliance during review. Learn what it takes to stay in compliance and the avoid risk of non-compliance and potential consequence of not understanding an issue with your product.
Poor strategies can lead to overlooked or lost information related to product reliability, raising concerns of public health and safety. Complaint Handling is no easy task; Customer satisfaction plays a significant role in measuring a product’s postmarket performance. It is an indicator of how effective the product performance is managed. Both the quality system regulation (QSR) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) require procedures and processes to monitor and control customer complaints. The complaint-handling mechanism not only collects feedback from unsatisfied customers, but also provides means for failure investigations and subsequent corrective and preventive actions (CAPA).
