Inspection, Measuring and Test Equipment – Webinar Recording/Transcript
Inspection, Measuring and Test Equipment: A Regulatory Approach
The journey toward medical device acceptance is long and rigorous, requiring vigilance around device quality, monitoring of external partners and readiness for regulatory audits.
One crucial step in this process? A control system with an effective inspection, measuring and test equipment (IM&TE) assessment program.
Has your team created the best system for assessing the technical and regulatory compliance of its products? Have you developed avenues to maintain quality through the processes of external suppliers? Are you prepared for the external audits your device will face before being accepted?
Ensuring your product has met all the requirements necessary to gain approval is demanding, but it doesn’t need to be painful.
This FDAnews webinar can help make your sustained efforts toward approval simpler, more transparent and most importantly, successful. Along with straightforward advice on managing what can easily turn into an unmanageable process, you’ll receive an internal audit checklist, a sample of a quality agreement and a traceability diagram template.
Operations management expert Dan O’Leary will share how to meet both the technical and regulatory requirements around inspection, measuring and test equipment. He will discuss creating a combined Quality Management System (QMS) — covering practical information on traceability diagrams, precision and accuracy testing, creating internal audit mechanisms for outsourced processes and preparing for external regulatory audits.
