Course "ISO 13485:2016 Implementation Workshop" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.
The medical device industry is in the midst of major change, with the publication of the FDA's UDI Regulation, the first revision to the ISO Quality Management Systems standard in over a decade, and the upcoming changes to the EU's Medical Device Regulation expected to be passed later this year. All of these events have far reaching effects on Quality Management Systems so it is critical to understand what has changed with in ISO 13485: 2016 in order to create a comprehensive quality plan for your organization to ensure continued compliance and certification.
This interactive session will include lectures, round-table discussions and activities all aimed at understanding key strategies and identifying specific actions to effectively improve Quality Management System Compliance. The program will also include detailed, step-by-step guidance on how to develop, implement and maintain strategies in order to achieve a specific goal. Participants will want to come to the sessions with a thorough knowledge of improved company strategies and a willingness to discuss aspects of it in a confidential learning environment.
Why you should attend:
Quality management systems are now, more than ever, a requirement rather than an option for sustainable businesses, both for increasing internal efficiency and for creating a competitive advantage. The easiest route for establishing a QMS is to base it on a proven method rather than starting from scratch.
