The management responsibility section of the QMS is one of the most important parts because it sets the tone for other sections. If you are involved in any aspect of management responsibility, then you need to understand how to set up the system as well as what can go wrong. This presentation provides you with an explanation of the issues, implementation tools, and illustrations of problems that could arise.

Why Should You Attend:

Management responsibility is the name of a QSR section that describes how top management sets up the quality system. There are significant elements of this system that are essential to a smooth running QMS. Understanding them is vital. In addition, ISO 13485:2016 mirrors the QSR requirements, but also diverges. For example, QSR requires a quality policy and quality objectives, while ISO 13485:2016 adds some specific areas to include.

Other QSR sections support management responsibility. For example, the quality audit program provides information to management on the QMS effectiveness. The Quality System Record contains necessary QMS information.

This presentation explains the required elements of management responsibility and the supporting sections. The approach looks at QSR as seen through the regulations, the preamble, QSIT, and Warning Letters. In addition, the presentation looks at the ISO 13485:2016 requirements, the handbook, and the MDSAP audit criteria. The result is a unified explanation of how to meet the combined requirements of both systems.

Bonus Materials:

Participants receive checklists to help ensure effective implementation of the management responsibility.
