Seminar Content

Omnex is an international training provider and offers this 4-day course on MDSAP to cover the requirements for and the auditing of the Medical Devices Single Audit Program (MDSAP) as an internal auditor. The MDSAP specifies requirements for combined ISO 13485:2016 and compliance requirements for all participating Regulatory Authorities.

Many medical device companies are utilizing ISO 13485 as a platform to build their business management systems because of its value or due to requirements by customers and/or regulators to hold third party certification. The MDSAP offers further value by adding an Audit Model that is recognized by various countries’ Medical Device(s) Regulating Authorities. Currently Australia/TGA, Brazil/ANVISA, Canada/HC-CAMDCAS, Japan/MHLW and US/FDA have accepted the MDSAP as either supportive or alternative to their Routine Inspections.

If your company participates or plans to participate in the MDSAP, it is inevitable that you be ready for any planned or unannounced audits.
