This webinar will enable you to understand the classes of recalls and their relationship to deficiencies in the design and development process, how to develop a strategy for preventing recalls right from the beginning of the process and how the application of risk analysis is a valuable tool in identifying potential areas that could cause recalls.

The secret to preventing medical device recalls is to implement and follow basic practices for specifications and design control, design for process reliability, production validation and design validation using accelerated life tests.

This webinar is about controlling safety risk from specification writing to device retirement – control throughout the product’s life cycle.

The webinar will provide an overview and a foundation for further learning concerning preventing recalls during specification writing, risk assessment and risk management, preventing recalls during the early design and the detail design phases of development, and preventing recalls during validation, verification, and software design.
