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 will help you manage inspections efficiently and effectively. You’ll learn about the FDA’s inspectional approach, focus areas, and what documents they will be asking for. 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.   

Why Should You Attend

An FDA inspection can be a very stressful and challenging experience.  These stresses can lead even experienced people to make very costly mistakes during an inspection. But good preparation can ease the stress and lead to much more favourable results.   

This webinar can help you prepare a strategy and detailed plans to more successfully prepare for, manage, and respond to an FDA or Notified Body Inspection. If you’ve had a recall, an increase in MDRs, or it’s been more than 2 years since your last inspection, you can especially benefit from this webinar.
