This webinar will help you to develop a Quality Management System (QMS) for Medical Device Companies.  A well-structured QMS meets the requirements of the Quality System Regulations and is both effective and efficient.  The regulations require that manufacturers “establish and maintain a quality system that is appropriate for the specific medical device(s) designed and manufactured”. 
This webinar will cover the basics of how to establish and maintain a suitable QMS including:
•    The basic requirements
•    Management Responsibility
•    Quality Audit
•    Personnel
•    QMS structure
•    Quality Policy
•    Quality Manual
•    Standard Operating Procedures
•    Work Instructions
•    Forms, Templates, Records, etc.

An efficient, effective QMS sends a message to the FDA and other regulators that your QMS is complete, accurate, and consistently followed.  More importantly, it ensures that your personnel can consistently and accurately meet requirements resulting in correct outcomes and quality work. 

Why Should You Attend:

An in effective QMS can lead to serious compliance and quality issues including 483 observations, warning letters, and even consent decrees.  Even worse it can lead to inconsistent of poor product quality including non-conformances, complaints, and even recalls.  And an inefficient QMS leads to confusion, inconsistency, excessive rework, corrective and preventive action, and increased cost of quality.  This webinar will help you understand the warning signs and create a strategy and action plan for improvement
