Recall Management for Medical Devices - Webinar CD/Transcript
Device recalls increased 28% last year, what some industry observers have called a “recall-o-rama.”
Thoratec, Respironics, Teleflex and Tandem Diabetes Care are just a few of the companies that have been hit.
How can you avoid being next?
Some device experts have been concerned there’s too MUCH recall reporting — firms are over-reporting just to be safe. Others charge firms with not acting fast enough. It’s clear there’s serious confusion among devicemakers.
But there are ways to significantly improve your recall management program.
Who knows when the day will come that one of your products faces a recall? It could be tomorrow … next week … a year from now.
Sadly, many firms are complacent about recalls — and woefully unprepared. Yours may be among them.
Does your company have an up-to-date recall plan? Or is it an old one, in a dusty binder somewhere on a shelf — or buried deep in your SOP archives?
Do you know the last time your recall plan was reviewed? Does it meet the FDA’s evolving standards for recalls? Has it ever been tested with a mock audit?
If you answer "no" or "I don't know" to any of these questions — or if you believe in the need to be proactive and prepared — you must order the FDAnews virtual conference Recall Management for Medical Devices CD and transcript.
