All medical device manufacturers marketing in the United States must have procedures for reporting adverse events to the FDA. This applies regardless of where in the world the company manufactures the device. During an FDA Inspection, the investigator will ask for the procedures and verify that they follow the regulation.
This includes linking the MDR information to complaints and reporting to FDA. Failure to implement the MDR regulations properly is one of the most common problems cited in Warning Letters. It comes just below the complaints and corrective and preventive action, both of which are often related.
This presentation provides the framework to understand the most common MDR problems: procedures, reporting, and records. The regulation has a section for each area that states the requirements; the presentation explains them. In addition, the presentation covers the role that complaints play in managing the MDR process.
To help understand the requirements for procedures, the presentation uses the most commonly cited problems in Warning Letters. FDA often uses "stock" language to point out these deficiencies, so identifying these common problems can help make your procedures better able to pass an FDA Inspection.
Why Should You Attend:
Because MDR implementation is one of the most frequently cited areas in Warning Letters, the conclusion is that most companies don't have a good understanding of the requirements. This presentation, with its analysis of Warning Letter citations, provides the information you need to ensure your implementation robust, and will pass Inspection.
