An integrated approach is needed for Complaints Handling, Adverse Event Reporting, and Recalls

Adverse Event Reporting, and Recalls4

The fact that medical device manufacturers work and operate in various regulatory systems whose requirements are different and not always consistent with each other is recognized and empathized by the new ISO version, the ISO 13485:2016. Because of the divergence in the requirements of each regulatory system; manufacturers are required to identify their roles, as well as the regulatory requirements for that role, and then incorporate them into their Quality Management System.

When it comes to post-market device issues; the various jurisdictions, however, deal with these in different ways. Three interlocking, interrelated processes need to go into the QMS:

  • Complaint management
  • Adverse event reporting
  • Recalls

Supporting QMS processes such as corrective action and design changes also need to complement these three processes. Over and above the QMS processes come the regulatory requirements, which usually involve areas such as recordkeeping and reporting.

A complete learning on how to implement an integrated QMS

Adverse Event Reporting, and Recalls3

A highly educative and valuable learning session on these primary and secondary QMS processes and the way they need to be understood and implemented vis-à-vis the US, EU, and Canadian regulations is being organized by GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of reg...

This seminar has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.

Alignment with the FDA’s QMS is a major point

Complaints, Adverse Event Reporting, and Recalls - An Integrated Approach

One of the highlights of the final version of the ISO 13485:2016 standard, which has now become available, is the extent of its alignment with the FDA’s Quality Management System (QMS) requirement. Although the degree of alignment set out in 2016 version of 13485 is significantly higher than that of the previous version of 2003; there still do exist a few points at which it deviates from the FDA’s QMS. Companies that are required to comply with this standard have to keep this in mind.

Now that the ISO 13485:2016, the Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP), and the new EU Medical Device Regulation have been introduced; companies need to update their QMS and integrate all of the elements if their implementation has to be effective and compliant. At this two-day session, Dan will provide the tools that the participants will need for this.

Safety Sign Colors and International Standards

Colors make a difference to our environment. They help us analyze the surroundings and distinguish between objects. We recognize plants as green and the sky as blue, whereas a frog, for example, can be either green or blue. Deviant colors, in this case blue, warns us about poisonousness. If we detect unusual colors in our food, for example, we associate them with rottenness, which then activates a warning in our mind “Don’t eat!” Colors cause diverse feelings and opinions, and even distinct…See More
