Although an effective Quality System should always be inspection ready, many medical device companies make basic mistakes during inspections leading to 483s and even warning letters.  This webinar can help you manage inspections efficiently and effectively.  A professional, polished, responsive approach sets a good tone for an inspection.  You will learn how to present information about your quality system in the most competent and professional manner.
