Design Change Analysis: Five Steps to Compliance
Medical device design change is a demanding and uneasy process. Failure to dot all your i’s and cross all your t’s can lead to inspection problems and missed market opportunities.
FDA QSR §820.30(i) spells out the basics of design change but is only the starting place for you and your team.
In Design Change Analysis: Five Steps to Compliance — Dan O’Leary — an industry expert with more than 30 years of experience in quality, operations and program management — presents a comprehensive plan for creating a robust design change procedure, including discussion of the primary FDA regulations and ISO standards governing design change, as well as flowcharts and decision-making tools to walk you through the five steps to compliance:
- How production and process changes impact design change
- When a design change requires a new device identifier to be assigned
- Whether the change requires submission of a new 510(k)
- Whether the change will require a correction or removal of devices from the field
- Whether changes need to be made to the device’s risk management file
Keep all the moving parts of design change in sync with Design Change Analysis, which lays out the factors you must consider along with the decisions you must make.
