Supplier and Contract Manufacturer Management for Medical Device Manufacturers 2022

This 2-day virtual seminar can help you understand your responsibilities in terms of Purchasing Controls and Supplier Management enabling you to provide safe and effective products to your customers. Learn how to prevent quality and compliance problems by having a strong system for Purchasing Controls! This virtual seminar will help you to understand the regulations and how you can translate them into an efficient and effective process for purchasing/ supplier control. You’ll learn about the essential elements of purchasing control and how you can translate them into your procedures. We’ll discuss the process steps for purchasing control and how it relates to other parts of your QMS including receiving and acceptance activities.

Why Should You Attend:

Inadequate supplier/purchasing control can lead to a multitude of problems including rejections or delays at receiving inspection; non-conformances and scrap on your manufacturing lines; and quality problems that can manifest later in the field resulting in MDRs and recalls.

Purchasing Controls have received significant scrutiny from the FDA in recent years due to an increase in adverse events and recalls. Purchasing Controls continue to be a leading source of 483 and Warning Letter citations. This course will examine real-life warning letters to deepen your understanding of important concepts.

This seminar can help you get your quality system off to a good start and avoid common problems including MDRs, recalls, 483s, and warning letters! Regulatory expectations for quality and compliance continue to increase. We will discuss changing regulations and expectations and what you can do to prepare for them. This seminar will allow you to interact personally with an industry expert with over 30 years’ experience in medical devices.

She is a published author and has traveled throughout the world developing, auditing, and improving quality systems.
