This webinar on Design History Files (DHF) will provide a step-by-step procedure for all medical device companies that are in need of bring their product design history files up to date with the current standards.
Many medical industry companies have not brought their old product lines up to current FDA standards and are not in total compliance. This webinar defines the procedures to be followed for medical products design history file remediation.
For example, companies should be compliant to ISO 13485, ISO 14971, etc. Design History Files and validations need to be updated to meet current standards. The FDA expects continuous improvement and risk management to be integrated into the company quality system. Old medical devices need to have a risk assessment for each product and updated validations for product and processes. Each device needs to have a gap analysis to determine obsolescence or re-validate. It should also describe the risk acceptance criteria as well as roles and responsibilities of each member on the team.
In this webinar, we will discuss practical steps you can follow to bring your product design history files up to current standards.
