Auditing Quality Systems for FDA & ISO Compliance
- Date: Tuesday, July 11, 2017
- Location: Paradise Pier Hotel, Disneyland Resort; Anaheim, California USA
Internal auditing and vendor auditing are extremely important compliance activities in the avoidance of FDA enforcement actions and are cited repeatedly in FDA Warning Letters to manufacturers. Notified bodies also verify that internal and vendor audits have taken place when inspecting for ISO registration, CE Mark approval, or the CMDCAS requirements of Health Canada. Internal audits are required by both the FDA Quality System Regulation and by ISO 13485 (including ISO 13485:2016). Be aware that Notified Bodies have access to your internal and vendor audit reports when performing their registration and surveillance audits. This course will provide an understanding of auditing concepts and techniques when auditing medical device manufacturers for compliance to quality systems such as; FDA QSR (21 CFR Part 820), ISO 13485 and CMDCAS. Vendor auditing will also be discussed during this course. Training will cover auditing techniques for quality systems designed to meet FDA, ISO and CMDCAS requirements. This course will be beneficial to new auditors, experienced auditors wishing a refresher, and companies anticipating or expecting to be audited or inspected. It is recommended for QA, RA, R&D, and management of both device manufacturers and vendors to device manufacturers.
