Design Control Compliance for FDA & ISO
- Date: Monday, July 10, 2017
- Location: Paradise Pier Hotel, Disneyland Resort; Anaheim, California USA
FDA investigators are inspecting and pursuing enforcement activities
for non-compliant Design Control violations. FDA has published that 68% of firms inspected had potential design control non-compliance and 55% of Warning Letters cited Design Control violations. As one of the four major subsystems within FDA's QSIT inspection program, expect your Design Control System to be inspected. Warning letters published repeatedly cite Design Control deficiencies. Design Control is also a very important element of ISO 13485 in which non-compliance can result in the risk of losing your CE Marks and therefore the ability to market your devices internationally. This program discusses Design Control, the regulatory requirements (U.S. & International), and methods for implementing and maintaining a successful Design Control process. A poorly implemented Design Control process can add delays and frustration to R&D teams while an efficient Design Control system will allow teams & companies to be remain creative, meet schedules, and stay compliant. Design Control Flowcharts will be provided to
assist with modeling of Design Control procedures and the implementation of
an efficient Design Control program. This course is applicable to R&D and RA/QA personnel who are responsible for their company's Design Control program. It is very beneficial for R&D engineers, QA engineers, RA, Management, Marketing, and Manufacturing personnel who participate in the design control process or may be members of a design team.
