This webinar will help you understand specific product verification and validation requirements for medical devices to comply with ISO 13485: 2016 and FDA quality system regulations. It will focus on the topics such as product development process, traceability and risk management at all stages, design outputs and documentation in DMR and DHR, design verification and design validation activity cycles and more.

Why Should You Attend:

Design Control is an integral part of any quality system in regulated industries. FDA Quality System regulation, Quality System Inspection Techniques (QSR and QSIT) and ISO 13485: 2016 have specific product verification and validation requirements that must be fulfilled in the medical device industry. FDA is getting more and more stringent about product design requirements for risk management and to fulfil its mandate for safety and efficacy of all medical devices. The design controls are now being expected from outside equipment manufacturers (OEM) and suppliers to the medical device industry.

The goal of this webinar is to educate you on the key areas that you need to focus on to fulfil the design control requirements for your medical device.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Product development process overview for design control management in the medical device industry for introducing a new product and sustaining your product design throughout the product life cycle.
  • Overview of applicable design verification and validation requirements for your globally distributed medical devices.
  • Testing requirements including the pertinent ISO guidelines to fulfill the key acceptance and evaluation criteria for your products at the different stages of its evolution and its life history.
  • Translation of user requirements into design inputs and role of testing and regulatory requirements.
  • Fulfilling critical to customer and critical to quality requirements.
  • Design verification and design validation activity cycles.
  • Traceability and risk management at all stages.
  • Design outputs and documentation in DMR (Device Master Records) and DHR (Device History Records).
  • Proof for how design outputs meet functional and operational requirements of your device.
  • Compatibility of the design with components and other accessories including software, packaging and labelling management.
  • Criteria for establishing test requirements to fulfil acceptance criteria for final products after validation and into the manufacturing cycle.
  • Design reviews at major decision points to withstand regulatory scrutiny.
  • How are changes and their effects controlled and documented during the device life cycle?
  • Key concepts for translating your device customer requirements into design inputs, outputs and fulfill product compliance/ audit requirements throughout your product life cycle.

Who Will Benefit:

  • R & D , Quality and Manufacturing Engineers
  • QC/QA Personnel
  • Test Engineers
