ISO 13485 has been revised! The rational for the change was to provide an easily understood quality management system (QMS) standard for medical devices that is designed for regulatory purposes including supporting the future Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP) goals and improving the alignment with EU Medical Device Directive (MDD) needs.
This class also covers the FDA 21 CFR 82030 for design control guidance for Medical
Device Manufacturers, the section of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act relating to
Medical Devices, Labeling for Medical Devices, US FDA QSR regulations and Good Manufacturing
Practices (GMP), Post Market Surveillance, and Human Factors in Medical Device Design.
Key changes include:
“Life cycle of the product” added to the Scope;
Risk-based decisions and principles throughout the QMS;
Update of some requirements to current best practices based on previous Global Harmonization Task Force (GHTF) documents
GHTF was a voluntary group of representatives from national medical device regulatory authorities, i.e., the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the members of the medical device industry whose goal was global standardization of medical device regulation
It was disbanded in 2012 and replaced by the International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF) with no industry representation.
This one day class will include lecture, group and individual exercises.
Who Should Attend
This seminar is designed for Management representatives, process owners (e.g. Compliance, Purchasing, Technical Services, and Quality) in ISO 13485-certified companies and auditors.
