Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

The US FDA has required medical device manufacturers to validate certain production processes since the 1980's. Recently the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) recognized the Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF) guidance on Process Validation. They no longer use the 1987 FDA Guidance as it has become outdated, and the Center for Drugs has instituted a separate guidance for other FDA offices.

This webinar will discuss the CDRH interpretation of the GHTF guidance and how manufacturers should develop process validation plans and conduct production process validation. As this webinar focuses on the GHTF guidance, the information here can be used by medical device manufacturers worldwide and not just in the US.

  • How does the US FDA interpret the GHTF guidance document?
  • Why should a company validate production processes?

Topic Background:

All medical device companies are required to review its manufacturing processes to determine which processes require process validation, and which processes may be qualified by other methods. The FDA enforces these requirements through its inspection program, and in the last few years well over 1/3 of all inspection observations have occurred in production and process controls. Many of these observations have cited companies for failure to perform adequate process validation.
