Every medical device manufacturer has to deal with nonconforming product — but based on the number of warning letters citing 21 CFR 820.90, it’s clear many don’t know how.

Register Now — Avoid crucial regulatory mistakes.

Yes, mistakes happen. It’s human nature. So be smart, be preemptive. When finished device products — or in-process devices, device components, returned devices or specific manufacturing materials — don’t measure up, learn how to deal with them in ways that save money and keep the FDA off your corporate back.

This webinar will help you:

  • Understand best practices for managing nonconforming product.
  • Discover the crucial differences between a correction and a corrective action.
  • Properly document decisions to use nonconforming product, using FDA-tested examples.
  • Understand the need for retesting and reevaluation after rework.
  • Know the role of quality data trending using appropriate statistical techniques in 820.100 and how this applies to nonconforming product.
  • Reduce the chance that a nonconforming product investigation will lead to corrective action.
  • Explain to FDA investigators why you were justified in using a nonconforming product for another use.
