FDA's New Guidance On Medical Device Development Tools

This webinar will discuss a voluntary process for qualification of Medical Device Development Tools (MDDT) for use in device development. An MDDT is a scientifically validated tool (test) to determine clinical outcome. Qualification reflects CDRH (FDA's) expectation that within a specified use the results of an assessment that uses an MDDT can be relied upon to support device development and regulatory decision-making.

Understanding CAPA for Avoiding Warning Letters

A timely, well documented, Corrective / Preventive Action program validates a quality system that is not only capable of identifying potential problems but also effectively correcting problems when incidents do occur and as part of the Continuous Quality Improvement program, correcting potential problems prior to occurrence. Adequate incident tracking is the primary foundational element for an effective CAPA system.

GMP Expectations for Products Used in Early Phase IND Studies

Because certain requirements in 21 CFR part 211, which implement § 501(a)(2)(B) of the FD&C Act, were directed at the commercial manufacture of products typically characterized by large, repetitive, commercial batch production (e.g., those regulations that address validation of manufacturing processes (§ 211.110(a)), and warehousing (§ 211.142)), they may not be appropriate to the manufacture of most investigational drugs used for phase 1 clinical trials.

Laboratory Accreditation: Getting there is Just the Beginning

Many laboratories regard Quality Assurance, Quality Assessment and Quality Control as independent activities, others use the terms interchangeably, e.g. QA/QC. This demonstrates a lack of appreciation of the differences between Assurance, Assessment and Control, as well as the interrelationships, particularly between QA and QC. This has created confusion in the minds of many analysts with respect to understanding how QA and QC play separate, but related roles for achieving Quality Assurance in a Quality Management System (QMS).

Casper Uldriks

FDA Device Software Regulation

Software's level of complexity and use is expanding at exponential levels. Likewise the potential risks to health follow suit. Problems with software create a number of different hurdles. Software may be a standalone device, control a device's performance, make calculations, identify treatment options or begin to play a more active role in making clinical decisions regarding patient management and treatment.

Jose Mora

21 CFR Part 820 - Quality System Regulation - Applying Principles of Lean Documents and Lean Configuration

All life science businesses are required to maintain their Quality Management System (QMS) processes in a state of control, via controlled documents and objective evidence in the form of records. Medical device manufacturing plants, required to follow 21 CFR Part 820, have the additional responsibility to ensure that each and every step of the manufacturing process is controlled by work instructions, SOPs, set-up instructions, equipment maintenance, and support functions, and that evidence of this work is maintained by controlled records.

Key Concepts in Successful Water System Sanitization

Though hardly a water system is designed and installed without some capability of sanitization, the system design features, materials of construction, sanitization chemical choices and how they are used, as well as the frequency of the sanitization process have everything to do with its success.

Anna Longwell

Customer Interactions: Law, Policies, Ethics

The proliferation of legal requirements (law and regulation) governing the financial relationships between medical product companies and the doctors who order their products has led to what can only be described as a tangled mess. Many device companies have had to add personnel, or employ expensive consultants in order to have a hope of complying.

Jeff Kasoff

Concepts of Medical Devices Design Control Systems

Prior to introduction of a new device, or even a modified design for an existing device, a systematic process must be followed. This process must ensure that all requirements are met. A firm's design control process must meet all regulatory requirements, but at the same time not be so unwieldy as the present a barrier to timely market introduction.

Elisa Harvey

Quality Management Systems - Creating, Implementing and Improving

Today's manufacturers face enormous challenges managing their quality and compliance initiatives. Market trends point to even greater scrutiny of these efforts as pressure mounts from both consumers and regulatory agencies for manufacturers across a broad range of industries to deliver better, safer products and services. To meet these important regulatory challenges, it is imperative that manufacturers have a quality management system to manage processes and provide timely access to relevant data, effectively and efficiently.

Introduction to SPC (Statistical Process Control)

Manufacturing involves an attempt to produce items that as closely as possible meet design specifications (e.g., size, strength, etc.). However, all production processes exhibit variation - that is, no two items are identical. What method can we use to reduce such variation? The classic and still most widely used method is called SPC or "statistical process control".

In the meantime FDA officials reported about key findings.

Teri C. Soli

Laboratory Water Systems: Necessary Water Specifications and Validation Challenges

Laboratory water systems are often the forgotten, red-haired stepchild of pharmaceutical operations. Yet, in some ways, the maintenance of the appropriate quality of lab water systems is perhaps more important than many applications of manufacturing's water systems since the tests performed on manufacturing's products can be affected by the lab water quality in insidious, hard to detect ways, which could cause perfectly good products to appear to fail testing or bad product to appear to pass. Often too little effort is invested in understanding and maintaining lab water systems for a number of reasons that will be discussed. On the other hand, excessive effort may be expended in maintaining certain water attributes that are neither required nor consequential for the vast majority of analyses, such as the microbiological content.

John E Lincoln

Change Control - Key to Successful cGMP Compliance

There is a continuing pervasive public perception that the FDA has been ineffective in protecting the public. Recent news events in foods, drugs, and devices seem to support this perception. The "tougher" FDA is determined to change that perception. Industry must be prepared to adapt, and recognize that such adaptation will actually work to their long-term benefit. This webinar will discuss and evaluate the effects that this call for change has on a company and its change control policies and systems.

Robert Kunka

Developing an Efficient Relationship with FDA

Some pharmaceutical companies do not have the experience in the regulatory area which includes knowledge of the process, needs, and results necessary for a company to be productive at the regulatory agency. Just as a couple dances together, the pharmaceutical company "dances" with the regulatory agency. Neither of the partners wants to step on the feet of the other.

John E Lincoln

Device Changes, FDA Changes, and the 510(k)

The majority of medical devices are cleared for marketing in the U.S. by the FDA under the 510(k) process. The FDA holds companies responsible for filing new 510(k)s when one change is major enough to impact safety / effectiveness, or when a series of lesser changes finally reach the "tipping point".

Dan OLeary

Device Corrections and Removals

When your firm finds a problem with one of the devices you already shipped, fix it for the customer. Do you report it to the FDA?
